Crow I would give you a couple of saw bucks for that old bullet stickin cooper.
I don't know how I can refuse an offer like that, Reb, but I'm going to try to think of a thousand ways.

I forgot to hold low at 35 yds, like a fool. He was sitting in a fork gnawing on an acorn. I saw the bullet impact the tree just above his head. He just sat there, and I felt so bad about the shot I walked off.

bolt just looked at me, shook his head, and went another way. Think I got one more shot that morning, on a squirrel no bigger than a chipmunk. To hit a squirrel that small the rifle had to be zeroed right so the early miss was sure just my fault.

Why thank you Sarge!!! It does a good job when the shooter does his job!!! It was mighty nice to be able to get out in the woods Saturday I must say. Saw enough squirrels, but my "sneak" was pretty rusty I will say that. I started to surprise some of the little ninja's after I slowed down. Amazing huh!!! The first three were taken between 9 and ten. Number 4 and 5 made the mistake of coming around while I was having lunch. They didn't see me slip out of the truck!!!

Thank you sir!!! I'm kinda fond of it myself!!! Just an old 152K Mossberg as Reb already knows!!! Good eyes there Reb. :bluethumb: Hopefully I'll be able to make it out to do a little squirrel this weekend. My son has expressed an interest in going this Saturday also, but doesn't want to take that 20 ga single shot. I think it kicks a little too hard for him!!!
God Bless, Frank.

So, I've attempted to make the most of my short break from school. I got out 5 days which was very nice. This morning I ended up getting up a bit later and headed into the woods around 8:20.

I slipped in, got a shot at one within 10 minutes, redhead, saw another within probably 5 minutes. Couldn't get a shot so I let him be. Sat down, saw one, shot him, redhead. Waited another 10 minutes, saw one, shot him, heart...about another 20 minutes saw a fox squirrel in the valley below me. Got 2 shots on him but I was an idiot and shot over his head both times so I let him go.

Got up, walked over to another area did 22 man's call. It worked, shot the one who barked at me, redhead and repeated the process 5 minutes later with the same results. Started walking back and redheaded another one on the way back for my limit. Now to go through withdrawals until Christmas Break...

Lucky people.
Went about 50 mi East of here last week. No
acorns or hickory nuts. Neighbor has a place
about 45 mi West of here. No Squirrel food
there. Guess we are out of luck. Found
acorns South about 35 mi. But Shotguns
only. Managed areas suck in Tn.

I got out this morning and got my limit before the wind came up. Got one fox squirrel and 4 greys. The greys were in thick stuff, hard to get a shot. Took the hm2 thinking I'd get longer shots where I went , but that wasn't the case. I missed one that was 8-10 ft from me. All shots were well within 25 yds.

Hey Sarge

I am going to Independence tomorrow for work. I am taking a rifle and if all works out hope to be done and leaving by mid afternoon and stopping at a place I drive by evertime I make the trip which is once or twice a year. It's just west of Independence a little ways. Of coarse the last I looked it is suposed to rain all day tomorrow----

Good shooting Sharp and Sarge! Looks like ya'll had some fun. Rain is supposed to move in here for the weekend, I've got to take the kids to the Dr. Friday afternoon, sounds like a good excuse to burn work and hunt that morning.

That's a good looking rifle, Sarge. What kind of glass do you have on it? I like that scope tube. It's long enough that you can slide it forward or back until you get it where you want it.

Yeah, I spotted the Cooper. Looks good and looks like you shoot it well, too, but I've never heard of that scope. Lots of things I've never heard of. I've lead a sheltered life.
