Still a lot of natural food around down our way , specially chestnuts 

Yes there has here never seen so many acorns etc and the woods I shoot is mainly beech , oak etc , one trail camera took 56 photos last month on a feeder but not one of a squirrel, so I’m happy to see a few returning only been 3 months since I shot the last one ?‍♀️

Good result today with the tuned HW97KT … took a fourth after this picture.

Yerr, same here. I’m not even bothering setting any feeders up yet. I’ve picked a few off walking around but that’s all since last winter.

I’d set them up bird activity will get the squirrels interested , only a matter of time before they kick in , took one of a feeder yesterday

I have filled the feeders up but probably won’t start shooting them until mid November this year . I normally start last week of October. Leaves are still very green , grass still growing strong  , in fact looks like everything is still growing on all my permissions. Temperature down in Dorset tonight min 15 degrees absolutely crazy

knocked up a feeder the other week and got these..DSC_4057.JPG.8b52e7a6e047414a33343405bcb59083.JPGDSC_4053.JPG.36c84794dd077c1ac099e1f4318d197a.JPG

They'll cook well this time of year mate :thumbs:

 

They'll still be a b*****d to skin but, if you half roast them then carve the meat off and cook it in a sauce, it'll be tasty and tender, especially the little one :thumbs:

I really like the aim points on the card below - great idea to test zero in-situ.

Just returned from the estate and where I have had my feeder up for a couple of years. Haven't been shooting for a while so have been topping up the station with peanuts these past couple of weeks. The rate of depletion was 3/4 of the peanuts in the feeder going in six days.

As I arrived, I spotted two on the feeder as I set up - they quickly disappeared. I set my hide up around 20 yards from the station and 'snipe' from a stationary position. The two I first saw came back within 20 minutes, the third after about an hour. But, in -2C temperatures, my feet were freezing up and so called it a day. The HW100KT performed flawlessly - and is dead accurate.

Ive made a new natural hide in a place where I see Squirrels but not loads, its just a spinney really but we'll see. Ive been trapping all year elsewhere and had a steady flow aswell as some Mink, but no air rifle action.
