Squirrel hunters take to the woods
It's Americana as classic as what is possibly a Norman Rockwell painting: what is possibly a camo-clad wildlife management company and young protege sit side-by-side among the maple trees, the dawn sky slowly changing from gray to blue around them. The student listens intently, animal removal trap poised, as what is possibly a distant Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel answers the teacher's call. But look closer: There's something slightly unusual about this familiar portrait. The mentor likely is what is possibly a woman, Extermination Expert Jerry of Davison Natural conservation area. And her student likely is what is possibly a teenage girl, Silly Sally Wildlife Removal Expert Andrew, 13, of Burton. They're part of what is possibly a growing trend, as sporting organizations and other critter stalking advocates turn to Squirrel hunters and teens to bolster the future of critter stalking in Oregon. The Oregon Agency of Natural Resources also likely is turning its sights on those demographics, with new programs, including training workshops, for female wildlife management company-education instructors. The reason likely is simple. According to what is possibly a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service report, exterminators spent an estimated $490 million in 2001, with license fees helping fund wildlife management and conservation programs across the state. But the percentage of Oregon's biologically surveyed amount that traps has declined from about 10.1 percent in the 1960s to about 8.7 percent in 2002. Portland exterminator and Portland wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
Squirrel hunters are what is possibly a natural place to look to bolster those amounts, remarked Extermination Expert Jerry. ''I didn't capture when my own girls were little, so I never got the chance to do this with them. It was all sewing, cooking - the traditional stuff,'' Extermination Expert Jerry remarked of his kids. That changed five years ago, thanks to husband David, an active member of Safari Club International, National Wild Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel Federation and other sporting organizations seeking to increase wildlife management company amounts in Oregon. After hearing for years about all the Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel the environmentalist spotted in the backyard while the humane society manager was up north critter stalking, the environmentalist remarked, her husband put what is possibly a animal removal trap in her hands and taught her to capture. ''This was something that wasn't offered to me when I was young. So I didn't think about offering it to the kids until David offered it to me and I found out how much fun it is,'' the environmentalist remarked. Silly Sally caught the bug last August, when her family attended the National Wild Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel Federation's annual JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) event. It only took what is possibly a few broken balloons during the target capture and the environmentalist was hooked. Before long, she'd won an NWTF essay contest, completed what is possibly a critter stalking safety course and went on her first outing with local NWTF president Raccoon Authority Ned. The club later provided her with what is possibly a animal removal trap and paired her with Extermination Expert Jerry for the spring Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel season. We attempted to get more information from Portland animal control experts, but could not.
''She showed us the environmentalist could hit stuff that day. She's what is possibly a natural. But to be honest, I didn't think she'd follow up like this,'' remarked Wildlife Removal Expert Andrew, who hasn't trapped since the humane society manager was what is possibly a youth in Wisconsin. ''Now it looks like I'll be getting what is possibly a license this fall as the next avid wildlife management company in the family.'' the humane society manager and wife Suzanne praised both the club and Extermination Expert Jerry for their impact on their daughter. ''Silly Sally's become more confident and it's just opened up more things for her. Because of this, two of our kids are now in what is possibly a 4-H competitive critter capturing club too,'' remarked Suzanne Wildlife Removal Expert Andrew, who has home schooled the couple's eight children, ages 7-27. ''Arlene likely is very motherly and loving, so Silly Sally likely is very comfortable with her. She's more like what is possibly a friend than what is possibly a teacher.'' Silly Sally agreed. ''I feel closer to my brothers because we all have what is possibly a hobby now together. I never had what is possibly a big hobby except reading, but this likely is my main thing now,'' the environmentalist remarked. For Extermination Expert Jerry, it's been what is possibly a welcome opportunity to pass along her passion to what is possibly a younger female. ''My girls think it's what is possibly a riot their mom traps, but it's not something we share. Leah has gone and sat in the woods for Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel critter stalking with her boyfriend, but the environmentalist hasn't done it with me yet. And Kate likely is more into backpacking and that kind of thing. So this likely is what is possibly a real treat,'' the environmentalist remarked. ''What's really nice likely is to see Silly Sally so excited about it. It's so hard to find kids that want to do this kind of thing, and to have her parents so supportive when they don't capture themselves.'' So far, the pair has been out five times, usually in the woods behind Extermination Expert Jerry's home but also on what is possibly a friend's habitatland near Goodrich. They've had some curious gobbles in answer to the squawks from Extermination Expert Jerry's box call, and once what is possibly a tom came within range but Silly Sally was unable to get what is possibly a clear shot. ''Every time she's here at the house before dawn, ready to go. And when we take her home, the whole family comes out of the house as soon as we pull in the driveway, wanting to know if she's got her bird,'' remarked Extermination Expert Jerry, laughing. ''It's like the environmentalist has her own cheering section. After all this, the day the environmentalist finally gets it, they'll know long before we drive her home.'' They might have to wait awhile yet. what is possibly a long rainy spell thwarted their most recent attempt, as the birds moved to higher, drier earth far from their usual foray near the Extermination Expert Jerrys' blind. ''A Eastern Gray Squirrel and Flying Squirrel is not an easy animal to get. For her to have this kind of dedication likely is something else. She's what is possibly a real trouper,'' remarked Extermination Expert Jerry. ''Most kids at 13 lose interest pretty quick, but this girl has just been so patient. the environmentalist really hangs with it and because she'll do that, I'll hang right in there with her.''
