I have a Ruger 10/22 with a little work done, a sling and a Williams aperture sight. We don't miss much.

Although, if I was going alone ... with nobody to watch, I might take one of the AR-7's I've been working on. I'm probably going to give that a try pretty soon.

The BEST, most finest hunting a man can do ... and probably the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

I own two Remington 870 - 12 gauge pumps. Both have wood stocks, one has rifling ... so for bunnies, I'd take the other one.

If we're going tomorrow, I'll buy the coffees and the pork roll, egg and cheese (spk) sandwiches before we start out.

I've been collecting military surplus rifles for a real long time and have hunted with most of the collection. But I'm getting old, so I've culled the herd a bit. I have some Mosins, Enfields and Mausers that get out. I have a Garand in .308 and a Springfield M1A I have taken in the past.

This was an odd year for me, health wise, so only the SKS and the 870 smoothbore got out.

I always carry a Victorinox Huntsman on a lanyard clipped to my belt, so that one don't count. I've got a good fixed blade knife with a hook on it for gutting ... but I can't remember the brand just now. It's down in the old pack I take when I hunt or shoot.

I like smaller drop point knives, something like approximately a 3" blade. I have several and like to rotate, but the current favorite is the AG Russel stag handled one. It may stay the top knife for me, I searched for one of these for over twenty years. Twice I tried to order one from AG Russel's website while they were still selling them new but there was problems with the credit card going through so I couldn't buy one at the time and by the time the problems cleared the knives were no longer in stock then they discontinued them. I looked and looked on Ebay and and ever so often one would show up but I'd get outbid and watch somebody else run off with it. Finally scored the one in the thread picture and much of this years hunting photos and have been well pleased. Just the right size and shape and some nice looking stag, a satisfying end to the years of chasing after one.

I have several different Queen, Case, Camillus, Buck and other fixed blades plus used some of the slipjoints that I have too. The skinner blades on the copperhead patterns work very well. Trappers work pretty good too. As long as the knife isn't too awful large and comfortable to handle they'll usually work okay on small game, and probably on larger critters too. I've only done one deer in my lifetime and that was over twenty years ago. I stick with small game, that's what I enjoy.

The Kimber 22 is on it's 14th hunting season. I hope to get many more with it. Good little rifle.

Good Luck Buddy.

You make sure that it's the best time you ever had and work real hard to remember all of it for when you get old!

+2 Enjoy your hunting with your father.

FYI you have your full address posted under your avatar so it will show up on every one of your posts. Not a big deal you just may want to change it to just the state that you live in for your own sake.

I love this thread. Read through it several times now. I'm not sure how the phone drift happened, I'm 40, and quite distinctly remember rotary phones, but the gun and knife choices are all over the place! I love it!

I've read about hunting bunnies with beagles, I've watched it, I've heard folks talk about it, but I have never had the opportunity to do it for myself. It sounds like a kick in the pants! I've hunted coons and lions over dogs and am partial to the work my Brittany does for me every fall, but beagles and bunnies sounds exciting!

I'm still looking for the "one", but I feel as if I'm getting close.

Thanks to everyone who participated, this has been great!

Squirrels?

1702 Leupy 2-7x33 70yd Zero.
And my trusty Schrade small game skinner.
Pack would be a CamelBack 2ltr, 10oz Old Trapper jerky, and peanut butter bars.

Now here is a question.

Would you take the Shot?

Obviously, I'm taking the shot. If one could adjust to the right angle without being detected, this could be a triple!
