Trying to!

I only have a single shot, so I waited for 'em to get near each other, and I got lucky!

I've got nearly 30 seasons under my belt, have shot hundreds and hundreds of squirrels, and can only remember one double!

Fine job, Gov!

I like to Squirrel hunt. I also enjoy the Bounty. Squirrel smothered down in onions ~n~ garlic, cooked down... then make a roux to thicken the gravy and serve it over rice... Did that last weekend...

Also, squirrel calls are cheap, and it's interesting and fun to talk to those Squirrels with 'em...

Very fine job, and a double! Awesome. Welcome to the Wonderful World of Hunting!

That's about how I got my start squirrel hunting. I used my dad's single shot 20ga, and his single shot bolt-action .22 (with no rear sight...it had a target peep sight, and he removed it...makes it interesting to shoot where you want it).

Never got two with one shot. Could be because I use
a 22 for most of my Squirrel hunting. Have got two a
few times in less than a minute. Nothing for them to
eat around here. No acorns or hickory nuts to be found.
Think the Squirrels left to find food. Go 50 mi East
or west and still nothing.

What's for dinner?

You can look forward to scenes like this if you keep going into the woods.

Snapped these pics while hunting last week.

Ever tried Squirrel Dumplings? Real Tasty.

Have Fun.

Dumplings sound delicious!

I used to see reds like that when I lived in MO, but in CT and here in PA, all I ever glimpse are grays.

That turkey...now that looks like fine eatin'.
