" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Good job Rick. How about some more details?
Where and how long were you calling? What did you shoot it with and at what distance?

I made a call with that weasel ball. They have one on varmint als thats where I got the idea. My first set I called in a raven that was it. Picked up and went some where else. When I got there I relized I broke my weasel  :'(. I threw a few rounds in the truck for elk hunting, well they rolled and broke my weasel. That was before deer season so I thought after deer and elk I'll make another and hit it again. Predator hunting , not the weasel  ;).  Gonna be fun  :IBCOOL:
