Me Me!

Went out this morning for a walk around my little patch of woods to look for squirrels and nabbed one. There was another on the backside of the tree that I hadn't seen and it zoomed outta there in a hurry after hearing that CCI Subsonic "WHOP". No more luck after that.

That's a nice head shot on that gray.

I also prefer using subsonics on squirrels --- spooks them less than the high or standard velocities.

Looks like a "tack driving" Kimber Classic that you're using. I have one myself...though I've had spring breakage on the bolt release lever button ---- twice already --- I had Kimber repair it, but they keep warning me about the scarcity of parts for the Yonkers 22.

Here is my first of 2019 and a first for me, he is a full albino gray squirrel. He will be going to taxidermist.

That is crazy! I've never even heard of an albino squirrel, let alone seen one.

Well that kind of sucks for such a pricey rifle... I've had my $180 Marlin 60 for 22 years, ran thousands of rounds through it and never had a glitch or part replaced... just saying. (sorry - couldn't resist )

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.

Tons of white squirrels in Olney, IL but I don't think they're albinistic.

Trying to figure out how you shot him and didn't get any blood on that pelt.

Thank you for the replies.
I hid the blood with a photo program.
I hate posting blooding pictures. I hit him way back near the hips, I was trying to avoid any bones to minimize damage. I wasn’t tying to shoot him that far back though.

That's quite the trophy, BKS! Congrats & a tip o' the hat, for that!

There was a white Fox Squirrel on a place I has access to for many years to both hunt and fish on a 27 acre conservation lake that was more or less central to the property. Saw that particular squirrel many a time, but never attempted to shoot it or got close enough toit to know if it was really an albino or not. It really stood out and I'd see it mostly around an old horse apple tree that was somewhat standing alone when I'd go there to hunt ducks in the winter. Saw it for several seasons, but figured a hawk had had its way w/it in the end. Speculation on my part, that.

Nice rifle too!

Got any black squirrels around to go with your white one BK?

Do love the looks of your Kimber Phil. It's a beauty.

And that's the first photo of an Albino Limb Rat I've ever seen. Congrats. He's worth having properly mounted.
