Way to go Craig,

when I think of squirrels, I always think of my Sako in 17 Mach 2, I guess I'll have to take one of My parker's out and try it that way.
I was sitting on the deer stand a few days back and was watching a Foz squirrel go about his business, I thought of you Charlie, was hoping to get a good picture of him but it wasn't to be.

A Virginia original recipe! What time should I be over? (No butterbeans in mine, please). I can bring some squirrels, too.

Just for future reference two ounces of shot ARE NOT NEEDED for squirrels Next time I decide to waylay some I’ll use my 1 1/2 ounce load of #6’s .

Iím contemplating making it for Xmas luncheon the Tuesday before Xmas at the shop . Also plan on making pheasant Jambalya and quite possibly the venison stew Iíve made several times from a recipe posted here .

I wish you were closer, Charlie. I'd like to have someone to hunt squirrels with here. We have plenty and I have never encountered a squirrel hunter on any public land in North Missouri. We have LOTS of squirrels -- fox and greys.

When I was a kid I killed enough squirrels to feed an army for the winter with my .410 and 11/16 oz. loads of 6s. Few they were that could escape that load. They had to get to a tall old pine and go to the top to be safe. Oaks, pecans and hickorys didn't get tall enough to protect them.

When I was young I was only allowed to shoot squirrels with a 22 single shot . And if I didnít shoot them in the head my grandfather would tell me about it
