11/27/2017 – 4th week of Late Fall

No luck on getting a deer this year so far. Being on second shift isn’t helping. However, I did bump a few deer and found a few scrapes so I am sure that I have the right area. In addition, I saw several pheasants and a flock of turkeys. Not too bad of a time.

Trapped and killed a skunk that was under the house. Only got sprayed a little and that was due to coming into contact with the bag I was using as a shield. Tried using a low speed .22 round (~700 for) to shoot the skunk but wasn’t happy with the results. Will most likely go back to subsonics (~1100 fpm) from now on. Or use the slower round with the faster round as a back up. Need practice with both rounds on the range.

Got a little work done on planting trees outside. I ended up buying some pecans and planting those and the black walnuts. Since I wasn’t able to gather many acorns, I will supplement them with conservation seedlings in the spring. Still have quite a few other seeds (hazelnut, ash, locust, hedge apple) to either plant or transplant. And I am not sure when abor day trees will show up.

Finally, working on getting the house thru another winter. Hopefully in January I will be able to work on house plans again. Not sure how much longer the current house has left.
