I was squirrel hunting in the U.P. and I heard a noise behind me . It was a bushytail not 5 feet away . It frolicked right infront of my feet, and that was all she wrote (he actually).My hollow point .17's took care of it's head, and then some. It had powder burns all over.

I don't know how many of you have had a chance to hunt them or not but wild hogs are one of my favorite animals to hunt because of the up close encounters that you often get and with often quite a few of them.   I have taken plenty of hogs less than 10 feet from me with my bow and its always very exciting.  Sometimes they have no clue where you are and often run right by you and bring the group with them.

Yeah, John.  I like to refer to them as "Dead And Don't Know It". :mrgreen:

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.

Wish I could have shot this morning.,...  I went up to the front door of the fire station and saw a squirrell through the glass door....   I decided to scare him and I walked up and hit the crash bar to open the door.  he ran to the right out of my view.  I cracked the door and peeked out and found that he was about three feet over at eye level...  he was able to get a grip on the fake pebble siding and had climbed up it. 
So we sat there and stared at each other until I did my imitation of a squirrel bark....  He twitched his tail and left... Guess I will have to work on the immitation before squirrel season starts up...

Firekidd, maybe your bark told him the nuts were already taken, and to scram!  That's really neat, that squirrel close by and eyebaling you. Next time, ask him if he wants to go for a ride  to the squirrel timber and play hide and seek. You tell him also, that "stick" you are carrying is harmless. :twisted: ;D :mrgreen:I figure he is recon, scoping out your area and planning attack.

I was duck hunting with my Dad & brother. We were hunting a marshey area with Dad walking the high land on one side and my brother on the other... I being the pup in the group took our dog ( springer spanial ) and walked down the middle of the thick stuff. There was about 2-3 ft. of water and lots of tangles. We were having some luck and the dog was working pretty hard staying 15-30 yds. ahead of me most of the time. I could see him up ahead of me and I could tell he was on to something again so I got ready for a shot. He moved towards some thick brush and out leaped this big old coon and landed right on his head...now we were in a deep spot and this coon had him in a head lock, the poor dog  had all he could do to just get a breath. At this point I'm just trying to get over there to help, I could see this coon was trying to keep his head under the water. As I got near I grabed my dog by the skin of his butt and that old coon looked at me with an exspression I will never forget, he let go as I pulled my buddy back that coon felt the hip shot blast from my BAS...estimated distance--- 3ft.
We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the coarse of history.

My son shot a squirrel today from about 3 ft away with his blowgun. we were sitting on the back porch drinking lemonade and the little bugger came running across, the fence next to him and he took it down with two shots.

I LOVE shooting blowguns. I only ever hunted door mice with it though.
When I was a child, I lived as a child. When I became a man, I put away my childish things and became a Gutpiler!

I used to hunt carpenter bees with a blowgun as a kid. I got pretty good at it once they learned to hoover just out of tennis racket range. Talk about great sport ;D
