The Boy Got His First Squirrel Today!
« on: September 17, 2011, 10:09:36 PM »
The boy and I went out this morning, him with the new 20 gauge I got him, and me with the .17 HMR as "backup".  O0   He shot at 1 and either peppered it or missed.  He got too far away for the 20 gauge, and stopped long enough for me to get the crosshairs on him.  Almost took his whole head off.  >:D   When we were looking for that one and I was cutting a stick to hang him on after we found him, there were squirrels running everywhere around us!  :o   We slipped down to an old beligerant fox squirrel that sounded like he was pitching bowling balls out of the tree.  Finally picked him out, the boy shot and peppered him, but it didn't seem to phase the squirrel.  :x   I grabbed his shotgun and shot twice more at him, but he still just kept taunting us.  Put the shotgun down, grabbed the .17 and took care of his big beligerant taunting red butt.  O0   Got him and saw a gray squirrel off to the side.  The boy shot at that one, but didn't get it.  A 17 grain V-Max bullet to his neck took care of him though.
 
After getting that one, we heard another squirrel cutting and moved up to that one.  We got relatively close to it and kept waiting for the right shot.  He came out on the end of a limb and sat there cutting a nut.  >:D   We were finally able to get the boy to get a bead on him.  One shot and he dropped.  O0 >:D :D
 
Total, we got 4.  Three gray and one fox.  Took some pictures, but haven't downloaded them off the camera yet.  I'll try to get them up tomorrow.

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.

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.

Hey fuzz, haven't seen you around.  How ya' been man?
 
It's supposed to rain off and on all this weekend.  Doesn't look like we'll make it out squirre hunting this weekend.  I've been watching the sunflowers at the back part of the property though.  ;)   If it quits raining enough this weekend foe us to get back there, I'm going to try to make it happen.  O0

Awesome job by Lil' BC!  O0   

Too bad his pops wouldn't let him get any closer than 75 yds away with his 20 gauge....just so the .17 had to come out.   ;D ;D

Sorry...couldn't resist.  :twisted:
