Now that deer season is over, my Son and I are doing some rabbit and squirrel hunting. We sat in my double ladder stand and shot squirrels on the ground with my Son's 22 cal. I bought him a Browning T Bolt with a Nikon scope. He is deadly out to 40 yards. I cooked the squirrels in a crock pot and we are having them for dinner tonight. Nice not to have to pick out # 8 shot:eek2:...........Gary

Your teaching him right,that will make a good markman shooting bushytails with a .22,to easy with a scattergun.I would rabbithunt with a .22 if it wasnt so dangerous but with 4 to 6 folks in a cutover that you cant see most of the time it wouldnt be safe especially the way they deflect.

How is squirrel meat? I've never ate it.
It is very tasty. Not many hunt squirrel hunters anymore. They just complain about how many there are when deer hunting:hysterical: I make squirrel stew and pot pies out of them. Ty it........Gary

You know what i find amazing about squirrels, is that they are a fraction of the size of deer, but make so much more noise running through the woods. You'll hear what sounds like a buffalo stampede coming toward you, just to see a couple squirrles chasing each other.doh

I haven't hunted them since i was a kid, i might have to give it a try again here soon.
