Just popped this red squirrel behind the garage (behind the target spinner).  You'll also note the cottontail, which was only 10 feet from the squirrel and never moved 'till I got out to retrieve the squirrel. 

 

The trick?  CCI Quiet ammo at 710 fps out of my Marlin 81 bolt action .22LR (1937 vintage) topped with a Hawke AO scope with parallax set at 30 feet, which is the average shot at this bird feeding station.

 

I set the squirrel on the 5-gal. bucket and will see how long it takes before being taken by the local "sky patrol."  Clock's ticking.

20 minutes have gone by now and popped another red.  Yup.  Rabbit's still there.  Gotta go put #2 on another bucket.

Cottontail, not snowshoe.  Three of them there this morning.
