    YEP... im gonna pressure cook them for about 30-45min and roll em in honey and then roll em in flour and fry em up!!!


    but the second squirrel i had apparently shot its rear end and it broke both back lets and u can guess what i had to do.... i couldnt shoot it cause i had a .410 so yea that kinda bummed me a little but its not that big of a deal

    as a hunter you always wanna strive for a quick and humane kill...

    well i usually use a 12ga with steel shot but i decided to go with my .410 but i believe if u can shoot good with a .22 it can be great.... but idk


    its all good tho

    .22's....the remington yellow jackets deliver 165ftlbs at the muzzle. never had a squrriel need a follow up shot with those. shot a coyote with a yellow jacket from 56 yards right in the chest and dropped him on the spot. .22's are good, you just need the right bullet.

    I like to tie crappie jigs with the hair it seems to be more buoyant than rabbit or bucktail.

    Congrats on the hunt on the 22s the 22lr sold will shoot clean though a squirrel and a hollow point tears the meat up to bad the best you can use is a 22 short hollow point you can find them at bass pro shop at one time they were hard to find :smile2:
