Mad Dog hasn't started a thread this year for posting up our squirrel hunting pics, so I guess I will! Anyone welcome to share their small game hunting shots.

Got to hunt for around an hour before dark this afternoon with the Kimber Hunter 22; saw three, shot one. Redhead from around 45-50 yards. Second squirrel bolted from the same tree, and it scrammed outta there at high speed never presenting a hope of a shot. Saw the third rustling around in a small oak and sat down and waited. And waited. Nothing. It teleported away. blush

I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even gone squirrel hunting this year. Busy working on the house....... I know, that's no excuse. Please don't take my man-card. frown

Done thousands of our ground squirrels. Learned one of life's lessons on the grays though. I can sit absolutely motionless beneath a hickory tree for 20 minutes. A squirrel can do the same for 22 minutes.

Pictures make me hungry. Mother makes the best squirrel dumplings.


You may not have lost all your marbles but there is definitely a hole in the bag!

First hunt of the season and maiden voyage for my new "Clemson Gun.".

I used some CCI "Short Range Green" that someone gave me a couple boxes of several years ago and now appears to be discontinued. It features an odd shaped 21 gr bullet of copper particles/polymer at an advertised 1650 fps. It shot great on the range and cut a clean, full caliber wadcutter type hole in the paper. It stoned the squirrels and did not blow big holes in them like I expected for such a light bullet at that speed. Interesting load.

Haven't had a chance to get out hunting for Limb Chickens since my return to the South. Been too warm......not worried so much about the Buzz Worms, but them Moccasins are another critter altogether. Way too many of them in my AO......Poobah needs to come do some collecting I think!
