I hunt more than geese so i`ll just report it all.Now I quit hunting tree rats several years ago,chigers,poison ivy, heat and those flying blood sucking mosquitos,hard of hearing and had to go to glasses that seem to fog up every time i look up and I`d rather clean a deer any day..Well my 9 year old grandson wants to hunt tree rats.I took him a couple of times last year and once last week and we saw plenty of tree rat and brought home the limit.Well today was special for him i borrowed a friends 20 ga cut down single shot.The first time for the boy to take a gun hunting instead of just tagging along.Dawn broke raining.He was so excited we drove to the hunting site and waited 3 hours for the rain to stop.After the rain the blood suckers were extra bad thought i was going to loose my ears and I have big ears.haha We were setting against a tree and a tree rat came by running over my grandsons boot,then up a tree into a hole before we could shoot.Only one we saw all morning.So goes our tree rat hunt for today.I think this forum is a great idea.

Fight gun control.It`s hard to kill ducks with a rocks,and you might just keep America free.

Went out after pigeons on peas on saturday, thought I may get some practice in before the season starts.Phil came down from London with his pigeon magnet. We set up at about 11:30 am and by 7:30 we had 171 birds!!!I have never shot that many birds in my life.It took about 400 cartridges and my shoulder is a bit sore but I love it.One week left boys and off i go!!

Hey limey,I was woundering if they still shoot peigons in england,now I know.I have a friend that was stationed there in the airforce.He used to shoot peigons and trap with a lord that was a good friend of his.
