Is anyone squirrel hunting yet?

Our spring season opened up the 17th.  I went then, but wasn't really into it.  My brother's boy came in for a little while and popped a few down at the farm. O0

I've got one in the refrigerator right now, but he committed suicide and ran out in front of me when I was almost down to the farm.  Scored a perfect head shot with that radial.  ;D   Since I was only going about 15-20 MPH, I backed up, threw him in back of the truck, and went on down to the farm.  ;)   Waste not, want not.  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.

I thought that fact was established a LONG time ago.  ;D

Like John said, it all tastes the same.  Ain't nothing wrong with eating road kill, especially if it's fresh.  If I see something get hit or if I hit it (like the squirrel), if I can, I'll always stop and pick it up.  I try not to hit critters, but I learned a long time ago, swerving to miss a critter ain't worth wrecking.  So anymore I just hold steady and hope for the best for the critter (unless it's a deer).  Most of the time, they'll make it out of the way.

Unless it's something that just needs to die that is.  Then I might tip the steering wheel one way or the other just a tad.  ;)

Hey I've seen some of the game that walks in front of BCs cameras. He could have had filet mignon or prime rib if he wanted!!! ;D ;D :twisted: :twisted: :roll: :wink:

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

 O0 Yeah on that, fellas! One of the younger fellas I work with hit a turkey this week and it has already been eaten because of the wisdom of his fellow older officers. Word is, it was really great.   :roll: :wink: :twisted:

OK, is everyone ready for squirrel season?  Have rifles sighted in, etc?

Kid brother Don and I have been sighting in squirrel rifles on weekends and have a few more rifles to sight in. A fella has to have priorities and be ready for any and all hunting situations. Hence, a serious hunter must own a number of accurate squirrel rifles.

During many years of squirrel hunting, the goal is to have a  rifle with lazier flat capabilities to be flat shooting and absolutely accurate.

The evolution of the .22 caliber has been interesting and worthwhile. Then, the .17s came into the picture and have enjoyed moving forward. My latest long range .17 is a Savage .17 WSM BMAG. It has extended range of unimaginable distance when I was a kid. It was beyond imagination to have a squirrel rifle capable of shooting squirrels and critters at 300 yards and beyond.

And rifle scopes! My first scope was a skinny Weaver 4X and was exciting. Of course, I was limited to iron sights for years until I even heard of a rifle scope. That's not a disability, though. A shooter should learn to use iron sights before depending upon a scope. Now, I own variable scopes and one that cranks up to 32X. Instead of aiming at minute of squirrel, one can aim for the critter's eyeball and connect at great distance. Aim small, shoot small.  :twisted:
