Was squirrel hunting with 3 of my buddies on a large tract of riverbottom hardwoods that I've managed for 20 or so years, and I killed TWO SQUIRRELS WITH ONE SHOT! Shooting my flintlock fowling piece with the 51 inch barrel and #6 shot. A squirrel was on the ground maybe 40-42 yards away and started up a big White Oak tree. I followed it looking down the barrel waiting for just the right moment, when out of the blue ANOTHER squirrel I hadn't seen came around the trunk and the two seemed to pause nose to nose kissing......BOOM! Two squirrels hit the ground deadern' hell!
That is just TOO COOL brother. I love it. And a smoke pole with a rock lock yet!!! Great shooting. If that ain't somethin special nothin is. It don't get much better n dat.
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
You can almost poke them out of the tree:up:.
Paddle faster!!! I hear banjos.
