Yep they can crawl off, in fact run off as if not hit if body shot but if one goes off on tippy yoes with tail sticking up in the air it is dead somewhere. I had one this week, hit it smack through the ribs at about 10 paces and it still managed to run 15yrds and got five foot up a tree trunk before it ran out of fuel.  I whacked a second time before it let go to make sure. As I have said many times, they are tough little boogers.

I had one which I did think I had missed yesterday, this morning. No mistake this time. A big Momma tree rat fat as butter.

One of the ones I couldn't find fell from the top of a fir tree but in that area its high ferns and brambles. By the time you have got through it could have crawled anywhere. I don't count them unless I find them dead.

Same here but I know they are dead and include them in my personal kills in my diary but not on our PW totals.

It "winds me up" when I can't find them though. But then again if it was easy it would be boring 😴🙄

Its always going to be tricky if you drop them into cover at this time of year and don't have a dog.

Another two this morning

Well after a long wet wait in the wood this morning, hearing a couple of squirrels calling and moving through the canopy, cascading showers of rain drips as they went. Then at 9.00am one comes along the ground and up onto a feeder. A large male.

Another potential walnut thief this morning but there is another.

1 or 1101?

I know you are succeeding in getting the numbers up, but that would be an exceptional daily score 🤣
