Impressed myself

Took the old marlin .22 out to check the zero this evening. Thinking bout doing some varmint hunting this weekend. At 50 yards it was hitting high the first 4 shots.

A little adjusting and I impressed myself by putting 6 rounds in an area the size of my wedding ring! No real rest just leaning on the corner of my truck.

As a side note the holes at the top and far left were holes from a few days ago.

That's good shooting. I'm going to take my 22 with me and sit on a foodplot and shoot some rabbits this weekend.
I go sit about last hour and half in the evening. I usually do pretty good. I killed 5 one evening last year. I don't expect to do that good this year, because the bobcat numbers have really increased this year.
I shot several bobcats this deer season but they really been working on the rabbit numbers on my place.
Here is one I shot during deer season.

I went varmint hunting the other night and called in lots of critters but my Son in law could'nt hit them. I called in one coyote first set and he missed then I called in a Bobcat on the second set and he missed. We went to another place and he wanted me to shoot so we called in another cat and I could'nt get a shot? We stopped at a little place on the way home and I called in one Grey Fox and he killed him. Would have been a good night if we would have killed the critters we called in. Oh well.

Here's one that I wish I would have mounted. One of the bigger cats I've called that was spotted up good. I sold the pelt instead.

Beautiful cat, what did you get for the pelt?

Nice, back in the late seventies, and early eighties. I trapped them and got ninety, to a hundred dollars a pelt. Then they put in the Russian embargo and the bottom fell out.

A few years ago some guys were taking cat hides to far south TX. and getting 200-250$ for prime hides and some were shipping to midwest and getting premium price but now it's hit or miss? The wife and I just took a ride and we saw 18 deer in one field all slick heads then 12 bucks together in another. Right before we got home a beautiful cat ran across the road about 30' in front of us.
