Default 600 chucks for this spring and summer

I have been laid up for over a month I had surgery on my ankle. My wife took me out to see if I could push my total to 600. I got 14 chucks last Friday. Number 599 was a head shot at 77 yards. Number 600 was this big ol dude. I saw him running to me from the field to his hole. He stopped and looked for just a second and I shot him in the eye with my Air Arms TX200 22 cal. I was using 14.66 gr H&N FTT pellets.

A trophy if there ever was one!

And an old ground hog can be tough to get. They get smart.
