Results from the January 22, 2017 Gray squirrel hunt

The first squirrel hunt of the season went well. The day started off foggy and it got very warm for January with temperatures getting into the fifties. This may have caused the squirrels to sleep in as most of the action was reported to be in the early afternoon.

Six teams entered a total of 22 squirrels with 16 head shots and 6 body shot. The following are the results:

Second Place went to the team of Eric Riegel and Tom Grasek with six squirrels (4 head shot two body shot) for a total of 10 points.

Third Place went to the team of Dale and Luke Allen with four squirrels (all head shot) for a total of 8 points.

The club is once again collecting squirrel tails and will be sending them to Mepps lures after the final hunt of the season. The club provided chili, venison noodle bake and chips and dip. For anyone who showed up to have their squirrels scored.  A good time was had by all.
