Squirrel Hunt, Day 3

Finally, after sneaking and crawling and slipping and stalking, I dropped the hammer and thereby dropped a fine young bushytail!

Bingo! Finally, after sneaking and crawling and slipping and stalking, the stars and a squirrel and the front and rear buckhorn sights of my muzzleloader aligned perfectly as I dropped the hammer and thereby dropped a fine young bushytail!

Then, just as my luck boiled over and I considered slipping out of my buckskins and onto a plane bound for Vegas, I downed another in short time. Eat your heart out, Jeremiah Johnson! Two for the pot! What a thrill, oh what a skill! And now I must clean them. And eat them. I wonder if my girlfriend will make the gravy.

Go Back.

Jef. I built my own .32 cal. caplock and developed loads for it,but it was only accurate at very high velocity so was a better varmit gun than a squirrel gun. I think squirrels are easier to clean than a muzzle loader so I use a Gamo pellet air rifle. Just as difficult but no smoke and no stink and a lot less noise!
