Was out hunting squirrel in D7 by Bretz Campground this past Tuesday. I shot a few squirrels, but I bumped into a big forky. He was just standing there. Looked like he was smiling at me knowing deer season closed. We looked at each other for a few minutes before he trotted off. Lucky guy, three days earlier and he would've been tagged. They seem to know when season is over. Oh well, I'll get him next year. Now that I'm going after them squirrels, I can't find them anymore either. :)
Yep, you'll see them everywhere now that the season is over. Must have a clock in their heads. Actually, I think it has a lot to do with the lack of people/pressure AFTER the season closes. Whatever, it happens every year.

Someone needs to print up some calendars with the wrong hunting season closing dates on them and hand them out to the deer. That'll fix em.

Or wear shirts that say "squirrel hunter" on the front & back to fool them into thinking deer season is over.
Well, there was a bump, a thump, a cloud of dust, and the smell of turnips wafting through the air...
yea! or you could take a tip from that gal and carry a deer crossing sign into the woods and put it where you want and just wait...
