"Competition between us................a head shot." Such a familiar story. That is exactly what my ol' Squirrel hunting buddy and I did also.
That looks like an Anschutz 54 action, but I"m not good with model numbers. Superb ammo that Eley is along with SK. I prefer their competitors, RWS subsonic, which I've used since the late 70's. Recently an online site sold the RWS subsonics at a ridiculous low price so I stocked up on them.
As I've stated else where, my Squirrel rifle I've used for forever, make that the late 70's, is a Kleingunther K22 or more commonly known as a KDF and it's also where my online name comes from.....K22. That rifle with Leupold rimfire low rings and a Burris 6X mini with AO was and still is my favorite setup. Don't have any good photo's of it, but below is a Mauser 201 with the same setup. Mauser 201's are the old KDF's.
Now days I have a lot more excellent in my pile to choose from, but that ol' KDF is still the one.

Missouri reopens the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in May.


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

One more month and a few days. This will be the first squirrel season I am fully retired. This time of year I wait for the mulberry trees to be ripe. Sit a ways back from them and drop the first head shot I can get. Then don't go get him. Just wait for the next shot. I keep trying to teach the grands that. They still get too excited and want to get the dead ones. But the dead ones don't move. The squirrel on mulberries in Misery seem to get drunk. You can shoot quite a few before they start to miss their buddy Joe or Bill. The next rifle I want to use will be a PCP .25 airgun. Legally suppressed it makes for some cool sniping shots. Good luck to you all and Be Well, Rustyzipper.

These are Ground Squirrels, we have lots of them but you don't eat them & you don't pick them up unless you have gloves on because they can have the plague. They are very destructive to pastures where cattle & horses graze. Every year ranchers lose animals to broken legs because of the many holes they dig.
I took 12 the other day in windy conditions with my S&W model 16-4 in 32 magnum using 100 gr cast HP's. The Squirrels hate them. You can see the last 2 were head shots, that's all that was showing as they peeked at me from their little hidedy hole at 13 & 27 yds.

Got 3 yesterday. With the FX Impact .25 with Donny FL LDC. Pretty dog gone quiet. Especially if you shoot one round without then put the Donny FL on. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

The spot I am hunting appears to be a better fall spot. Saw tons out there last fall while deer hunting

Saw 1 this morning and pretty sure it is an old sow. I get pretty picky this time of the year and try for the young squirrels only.

May try again in the AM if it isn't raining.

300 a year is a pretty good mess of nut munchers!!
