Well here is my results and stories from my last month of hunting including the 4 deer and 3 hogs I shot on the trip. I've haven't been posting because I was away from the computer on my long camp vacation hunting everyday. Now have a freezer full of meat but still finishing off the season bow hunting at St. Catherine's Creek NWR in Mississippi this weekend and next thursday. Had an almost big enough 6 point at 12 yard this past weekend and saw countless does. Hoping a shooter will walk by.

Thanks, enjoyed the pics. If you see an abundance of squirrels when you're bowhunting, please let me know. I want to make a hunt,but won't be going until Feb. Heard the water maybe coming in. Good luck!

Squirrels
I plan on going to Red River in February myself to squirrel / hog hunt with shotgun loaded with hevi shot and scout for new deer spots. On the north end I see plenty of squirrels in the fall, but late winter I never have much luck though along those oak ridges they should have a bunch. Not sure what the water is doing in Red River right now, but where I was on Bayou Cocodrie on the Wallace Lake unit is only assessable by waders but haven't been seen many squirrels.

St. Catherines
Thanks for the reply. Hunted on St. Catherines last Feb. for fox squirrels in the swamp. They weren't many at all. Hope you find you some prospects for next year on RR. Good luck!

lack of squirrels
They have more deer than squirrels over there in st. Catherines. Hardly seen any squirrels there but seen numerous does on every hunt. First stalk thru I had jumped 24 deer just walking a few miles but they aren't any oak trees where I'm hunting.

oaks
You're right, there aren't many big oaks in the swamp. I use to hunt the swamp near Lake Mary where there was lots of fox squirrels. They are sparse on SCC NWR. Good luck on the hunt.
