You need to move down here to KY John.  Our season runs until the end of February.  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

 O0 Yeah! It's time to move south!

My son John calls from Phoenix and tells me how nice their weather is, 70's and 80's. He is trying to talk my wife and me to move there. I am no stranger to there and it has always been tempting. Believe it or not, AZ has great squirrel hunting. Son John is also a licensed hunting guide.  :)

 :'( Post season blues! No squirrel hunting in Iowa until about 9/1/16.

Last season was pretty good. My .17 WSM was really dropping them because of the extra range and wallop of the round.

It worked great for a big tomcat and coyote, too.  :twisted:

We've got a spring season opening up May 21st down here John.  You may have to take some time off and come down and get covered in ticks and chiggers with the rest of us.  ;D

Have been killing a few on weekends, got 2 grays yesterday morning with my .17 WSM. With all the skeeters, leaves, and ground cover, it's been tough going.

Longest shot was about 125 yards, a gray that took the .17 WSM 20gr bullet in his head. I watched that bugger for about an hour until I got a shot. The other gray was also a head shot, pretty much a must with the round.

At least the chiggers and ticks are done for the year.
