What has?
« on: October 23, 2015, 12:16:44 PM »
What has got to be the most annoying critter in your neck of the woods when it comes to hunting?
I was dead sold on a barking squirrel but after the past few times in the tree I have now decided that those pesky little chipmunks are twice as bad with that little whistle alarm they do.... Good gosh is it annoying! it sounds just like an alarm clock
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

Oh I agree - Chipmunks (or "Grinnies" as they were called on the farm) and Squirrels are bad but a couple of tiny songbirds rustling will drive me nuts.....THEN, then, there is a few neighborhood resident house cats (collars with bells on and all).

Armadillo, I had one rooting around my stand for a good 30 minutes and out walks a Doe about 50 yards away. She stops looks directly in the direction of the Armadillo and all the noise it was making and immediately ducks back into the woods and doesn't touch the nice clover patch she was about to start eating on. Of course after she disappeared I couldn't find the little sucker, I guess he knew he was about to get a 30-30 round heading his way at 2400 fps! She was a nice big doe, all she had to do was put her head down and eat a little clover and I would had an easy broad side shot at 50 yards but no, Mr. Armadillo had to scare her off. I think I'll start shooting them suckers on sight from now on!

Annoying as they are, I use them to my advantage now.   I'm amazed how many deer I might not have otherwise seen are outed buy these noisy squirrels, blue jays etc when moving through the woods.

They can be annoying but they also work as motion alarms   LOL

The biggest problem for me is TURKEYS!  When it isn't turkey season, them suckers are all over me and my hunting area!  Not long ago, I had 20 turkeys come in all at once.  Now, on the other hand, while turkey season is in, I'm lucky to be able to call in 1 or 2 but, the DEER are there.  I swear, Mother Nature provides these animals with a hunting season calendar!

Now I can hunt and go bass fishing anytime I want!  Started deer hunting in 2007 but, had many years as a teen hunting rabbits and squirrels.

We've been fortunate the hogs haven't invaded our place yet. We know they're close. Twice we've had pictures of one just cruising through, we would get pictures of them entering from the SE corner of the property and exiting on the NW corner of the property. Each time we never got any more pictures but standing orders are they are to be shot on sight whether it messes up your deer hunting or not! Coyotes are starting to be our problem, it's not good when you get pictures of them during daylight hours eating apple flavored corn!

Like MI-B I used to get really annoyed at the squirrels & bluejays, but have learned to pay attention to what they're talking to - they've clued me in on deer and coyotes approaching (and a mink one time).   I'd have to say my biggest nemesis in the woods locally is the *$&@^ coyotes.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
