First day
« on: October 15, 2011, 05:52:42 AM »
Up at 5:30 to get ready for first day of squirrel season. Was going to go muzzleloader for deer, but my cousin wants to hunt and we decided to go out for squirrel so he can. He hasn't hunted since he was 12 or so, figure missing a chance at a deer is less important than get a family member back into hunting.

We started at 8:00am and finished around o'dark hundred. I got one with a shotgun and one with my cousin's 22mag. The one i shot with the 22mag was like 60yards away through some thick stuff and he did a back flip when i hit him. My dad got 5 with a shotgun. And my cousin only got one but he work hard for that one.

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.

Well, it's straight uo 0500. I woke up earlier with a serious case of need to be in the woods with a rifle. Y'all know what that means. The only cure is to just go and stalk and kill the dastardly bucktoothed varmints.

Coffee is brewing and wife is sound asleep. Maybe I will have to sneak out if she's not awake.  :twisted:

I still have some scores to settle with some squirrels from last year.

Snipers forward!

 :) Well, was my first time out this year and I got 5: 3 fox and 2 greys this morning, 5 shots, 5 squirrels. It was tough going with all the leaves on the trees and tall weeds and brush. Finding some of the dead ones took some time after they were knocked out of the trees.

When I got home and was cleaning the squirrels, I noticed one still had an acorn in its mouth.  :)
 
Legal limit is 6 squirrels here in Iowa. I think I saw a total of 7 squirrels today, was slim pickings.
