“Waiting on a Fox Squirrel”

“Snapshot Saturday”

A traditional woodsman, half-hidden in a windfall, waits on a fox squirrel to close the distance.

On a warm October afternoon, a traditional woodsman sat quiet in a windfall, watching a plump fox squirrel bound up the slope. The squirrel frolicked just beyond the Northwest gun’s effective distance and treed when the woodsman arose and began a slow, deliberate stalk. Old Northwest Territory, east of the River Raisin, 1792.
