for some reason last nite when i was packing i had the itch to look through a scope not blast with i packed the deadly with it thats one of my favorite things to shoot with..i will get a good head start on him being he isnt allowed to hunt tomarow just take me hunting!..nothing like ahead start in a race!...he always seems to catch up by the end of the season!...and ive never heard somebody shoot so much! i know why he hates 22s so much for rat hunting he couldnt hit em! yesterday i washed our stuff and emptied his pockets he had 30 shootgun shells with him...add our states small game limits of all the game combined he could limited out shooting everything twice! i carry maybe 12 for a limit of 6 rats and 2 grouse..i dont need to carry lead around for nothing! o well ..i cant wait! i will post on how many i got!

Hey, I can understand what you're saying, longtime bowhunter and Squirrel harvester. I've got twelve on the year, love to bust em. Killed 18 with a bow last year and less with a shotgun. Want some good Novemeber practice, wait until they are on the ground and sneak up on them for a good shot with the arrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
