Reply To: Prepairing for next year's squirrel season
Well we can’t hunt tree squirrels in my county, but we have tons of rabbits and ground squirrels. One thing I like to do in the off season is to ‘hunter plink’-that is pick a bit of bark or leaf and try to hit it either with or without using the rangefinder. A LOT of my shots on rabbit will be 10 yards or less in heavy cover so you need to be able to ‘thread the needle’ to make a good shot. Time in the woods, practice and more practice. Shooting up at an angle requires some hold under and the wind affects the pellet more up high.
As far as I’m concerned all time in the woods is good, I walk the property I live on in all kinds of weather, it’s fun to try and spot the critters and see where they like to be. Right now it’s bunny breeding season, so I see lots of chasing each other around happening.
PS-they’re making some very realistic knockdown targets!
