Boxing Day Squirrel Shoot

Recommended Posts

After not been to this land in a while I dropped a bottle of whiskey and card at the farmers house and had a quick chat the other day and said I'd be going out in the next week or so now I'm off work. We had a good frost this morning and knew the squirrels would be knocking about when it would start to thore. This permission is main woodland where his sheep and beast graze and there is a syndicate pheasant shoot so plenty of pheasants and feeders. Iv only really wondered into the woods with the dogs a couple of months ago but didn't see to much because of how thick the woodland is so today I walked round the edges picking off any stray squirrels. Plenty about and could of got into double figures if I had stayed longer and a Was abit quicker with getting the shot off. I managed 5 all less than 35yards with my ultra. These guns suit me perfectly. now I'm not really a member of the noodle arm bragade but the size means I can pull the rifle in tight and being very pointable and very accurate when I can shoot straight... Was a nice few hours out and will definatly be out again before I'm back at work. the woodland in the picture is only half to woodland which goes right round the river to the house where the arrow is.

Atb guys and hope you all had a good Christmas!
