Used range finder after this hiccup. 2nd shot 35y head shot DRT pellet went clean through .3rd shot 27y, head shot same result .4th shot 50y center chest, dropped n kicked a couple times .php went through .5th shot 9y head shot , bunny DRT, devastating clean through php hit ground n kept going. 6th shot 35y head shot , bunny did the funky chicken down the hole, bummer . Left @ 0900 got to my second spot 0915. 1st shot 20y head shot, squirrel flopped down hole. 2nd shot 2 @ 15y head shots same results , flopped down hole. 3rd shot 10y neck shot squirrel, same result .Tried to retrieve in thick brush n almond cuttings .I cld see blood splatter, fur, n matter where POI was, n then blood trail down hole. These KC squirrels are tough, need a flash in .25, my next purchase ?. Called it a day @ 11:15, it was 93°, n getting hot. Went throught16 rounds n had 8 left, I'm loving this mag n PCP gig.

     Hey Jon 86 

    nice shooting on those kc bunnies 

    I headed out this morning with the urban  and got to my spot around 6-30 am 

    had to work for it but managed a limit of cottontails by around 8-15   My urban was dead on at 35 yds and shoots the predator gto s lights out at that distance  the gun is a dream to shoot   My son (14) was shooting my .22 Maximus and managed 2 on his own 

    but missed some fairly easy shots  on some others  he is still learning how to hunt small game but is holding his own so far with the single shot Maximus 

    seems the kc squirrels are evading me so far this year. Can’t seem to find any target rich environments for them so far 

    pretty good day overall other than it was already getting hot by 8-30 am  glad I packed it in early

    In the desert, we have e a huge tick infestation this year.  Every rabbit I have shot has been  covered with them.  Our winter was very warm and the bugs are thriving.  Always check the liver for spots a d or discoloration.  Wash hands and forearms thoroughly.  Do not allow rabbit blood onto broken skin.  Tulerimia is a serious disease that has life long impacts.
