Congrats on the first kill!!!   Definitely focus on the hardwoods... and make sure those crows get some payback!!!  :twisted:

Get a crow call and sit down beside a tree, fully camoflaged (gloves and face mask included).  Crows have some really good eye sight.

As Gutpiles said, concentrate on the hardwoods.  Pines have somewhat of a bitter taste, so squirrels usually wait to cut them.  Best thing to do this time of year (since the squirrels are on the ground), is to walk a little piece and then sit down and wait 10-15 minutes.  After that, move about 50-75 yds or so and do it again.

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.
