    Sounds like a great time, Luis!

    Strange as it sounds, hunting squirrels with a .22 rimfire can still give me the shakes. Seriously. LOL.

    JerryBobCo... If you think squirrels out of pines are bad, you'll change your mind if you eat one that's been feeding in cypress in the late fall. Those=really nasty.

    I love squirrel, but I learned pretty quick not to shoot them when they were heavily into evergreens.

    Yep, most definitely. The Only Evergreen they taste good when they live around it is a Live Oak, which does qualify as an evergreen.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    Ned, I had forgotten about SERE :yikes:!

    Yes, Billy did use a 1911 that I had traded to him 13 days earlier to finish off a 230+- pound female black bear that attacked him after he had wounded it with his caplock muzzleloader. Said he knew better than to gamble on knocking the bear down with a .36cal, but took the shot anyhow! The wounded bear charged him, he jumped behind a large oak tree at the last second and emptied a 7 shot clip into the bear from about 15 feet to his feet killing it! Black bears WILL attack humans, and 95% of attacks end up in death! Billy was also with me when I shot the black bear up a tree with my .50cal Hershel House flintlock, breaking the flint when I fired wounding the bear with a head shot! That was an "interesting" time too! :tooth:

    And as it turned out, that area at Eglin had been an Agent Orange testing area.
