Oregon Ground Squirrels
« on: June 03, 2007, 11:11:44 PM »
Just back from a couple days in the Enterprise/Joseph area. The grass was a little tall, but it made a hunt out of it. 8)

Beautiful country!

My buddy Tom and I did most of our shooting with a Cooper 22 Hornet and Ruger 77/22 Mag, but I had one great morning with my old 62A.

That looks like fun.  I got a few shots in this weekend off my back porch.  Little rodents sure do love a new garden coming in.  My neighbor had a couple guys working his field this weekend so maybe there will be less of them.  GOOD SHOOTIN'

Looks great! That little bugger on the top photo looks like a cannibal. Was any of that going on?

There was one instance of a pair of them sitting nearly side by side. I hit the one on the right with my hornet, leaving little recognizable as a squirrel. Almost immediately his buddy was over him doing something? ?? Looked like maybe dining going on to me.:o That is, until I had a good bead on him.

Last year I shot one and then one ran up and started eating him.  I shot him and within seconds another came up and started humping him, so I shot him.  Weird little snappers.

If I can think of a rodent term for the letter H then I could rework C.H.U.D. and resurrect an old acronym :D

Great fun...I spent a day with my uncle many moons ago shooting squirrels around enterprise.  I have spent many of days and hundreds of .22 shells shooting them in the okanagan when I was a youngster...sure improves the shooting skills.
