I just need to get permission to hunt squirrel in my old stomping grounds. Will take the .25 cal PCP with LDC. Pretty quiet and single load not magazine fed. It makes me slow down and take care with each shot. Some days I may have to get the venerable Marlin 39A out for some fresh air. It has only been out a few times in the last ten years. Rusty

You can get a whole bunch of money tied up in hunting gear. Don't want to figure how much put into rifle, scope and mounts, strap and swivels, binoculars, camo clothing and boots, ammunition, knives and game shears. Would be shocking to some folks. Just to hunt some tree rats! I think it's worth it though. Plus you get to go places that would never allow big game hunting.

Took these monkeys for a stroll this morning. This squirrel cost them 10 minutes of torture ( sitting still and moderately quiet) and one big surprise when the little Model 11 barked....

Why not try a different photo host? Photobucket has been effed up for a good while. I've been using Imgur and it is as simple to use as any of the other host sites. There are several other photo hosts and any of them work well, unlike the sleazy dealing Photobucket.

Sooner or later our heritage of hunting is going to be a rich mans sport and the words "Outfitter" and "Hunt Industry" will be synonymous with cancer and A.I.D.S. among blue collar hunters like me and my family! (A.L. Williams - 2010)

Anybody else hunt with a suppressor? I got a new squirrel getter the other day, a Tactical Solutions x22( fancy 10/22) mounted my YHM Stinger cans and an Athlon 6x24x50, the bullet hitting them makes more noise than the gun.
Have had a horrible year deer hunting so I decided to finish this season squirrel hunting.

I finally got out after some squirrels. Oldest son went deer hunting with his cousin so I just cat footed a bit behind the cabin. I ended up with 4, even after missing shots on the first two. I will say that the CCI Quick Shock stones the heck out of squirrels.

Went out early this morning for a walk around my woods and managed to spot one. There was another on the backside of the tree trunk that I hadn't seen and it split in a hurry.

Shot one more yesterday afternoon over at the inlaws. Should have had another but my left arm shaking caused me to miss what should have been an easy kill. Wobble wobble wobble. shocked

Went back to a place I hunted years ago with my dad. Got 3 out of one tree and another a few yards away. All males.

I decided to go retro today, taking my old model 60, my first rifle and the first gun I ever bought with my own money, although Dad had to do the 4473. It was a very windy afternoon and the critters were laying low, but I managed to find two willing participants. I used some equally old ammo and the game bag is nearly as old.

Well boys, today is the last day of squirrel season, here in Indiana. 6 1/2 months before I can go after them, again. Was only out 2-3 times in Dec. and Jan. because of my age and the weather grin. Looking forward to next year, already.

One more month for us in Alabama. I didn't hunt much in January, lot of rainy or windy days and too many doctor appointments for me and the wife.
