Yesterday I called then drove out to the dairy I have permission to shoot. Taking into account everything that Shooter John stated about shooting around the cows and the other major topics....I decided not to shoot around the cows or where the men are working. There was a long pile of 1/2 tires used to hold down tarps or plastic laded over long piles of various feeds for the dairy. It was full of squeaks. With my Air Wolf (.22) I managed to shoot 13 out of 15 shots using 18.1 gr pellets. These were from 25 to 44 yards. I would say the first ten were in the first 15 minutes. After that thing slowed down ... alot. I then drove over to the one of the "Lagoons" (used to catch drainage water....30 feet top to bottom). The place was crawling with squeaks. I even seen some on top of each other there was that many. Really. I have to figure out a new approach as I was to far from the action ( 88 yards is good for wounding but not good for killing) But first time there... I will figure it out, I'll bet.

That's a great sounding place Murph. Those ground squirrels love those sorts of places. I'm sure you'll have even better shooting as it warms up and the squirrels become even more active. :good:

Yo Murph...get over to walmart and buy a bag of squirrel food (10 lbs). Scout your squirrel heaven,and drop handfulls where you can shoot those squirrels...they will come to the bait......what happens is birds find it first...then squirrels rush in for their share....This may help solve your 88 yrd issue...just set up 'kill zones',..fields of fire....and if you can shoot down on them,you will win the war.
