Took Down A Tree Rat
« on: February 14, 2020, 08:31:05 AM »
While technically not hunting (merely revenge) I was able to put a Grey in its place yesterday morning.  I would have had pics, but our cat ran off with the bounty.  Roughly a 25 yard shot with my 17cal  Weihrauch HW 30.  Gratifying to say the least.  It and/or its friends got into my shop and ended up tearing out the ceiling over a 1/3 of the place.  Now to rinse and repeat. 8)

Good Shooting.  8) Sometimes the varmints just don't know their place.

I think the Grey's are more stupid than the Red's; haven't got a clean shot at any of the Red's, YET!!!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
