Been keeping the population of red squirrels down around the home territory and took this varmint from a cherry tree at 16.5 yards.  This one, as well as dozens of others this year, fell victim to my 80 year-old Marlin model 81 bolt-action .22 rimfire today.  It has a slicked up trigger and sports a Hawke 3 x 9 scope with parallax adjustment, making it an extremely accurate and useful choice at various ranges from a scant 30 feet. 

 

The ammo of choice (shown) is CCI .22 Quiet and pokes along at only 710 fps.  Dang squirrels don't know the difference between this stuff and super-sonic ammo, though. 

 

Dead is dead.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

I've been feeding them to the crows, Pokey.  I have a spot out back where I put them, or mice, or ground squirrels almost every day.  They don't stay there long, 'cause the crows are smart and come looking for their fast-food breakfast routinely.  Since it's crow season, I guess they could be bait already.

Glen be careful. I am no expert but I am sure your aware Crows are part of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. It could be a federal issue if you bait them and then decide you want to take a few for great-grandma's crow pie. Yeah I know, it sounds crazy that crows are included but its the government.

Not if it's crow season.  And, it is crow season in Michigan.  Game on!
