I find them delicious not so strong i flavor but i guess you would say they taste of game if you were raised om chicken One funny thing is when you fry them the inner file becomes white meat and the outer breast becomes very dark and they can be a bit dry specially older birds

I got another Red Pine Squirrel with the 17 Mach 2 on Christmas morning... I wasn't dressed yet, & doggie beat me to the falling critter... so no pictures of that one... cotton tails are making a come back since doggie is getting old... need to go on a rabbit campaign soon... they stay brown, easier to see in the winter with contrasting color, & less foliage ... don't turn white like the Jacks
I've used a dull camo tape on the barrel and top of the frame for years when hunting with a SS handgun. COR was bustin' my chops when he saw my BSBH 480 so adorned 2=3 years ago. I was glad to see someone else and with more imagination step up ! A trend started..LOL. I will keep my eye out for something that catches my interest now though.
" If we threw all our guns in a pile I would find mine first!"
That line reminded me of the time I was teaching a scuba class, and we got on a boat in south Fl. A guy there had the (then) new pink colored gear. When politely questioned about his choice of colors he replied; "I can find my stuff easily,, and nobody wants to steal it."
Go ahead,, throw them in a pile,, and I'm SURE a few folks would "claim" it as theirs!

My sixgun coyote happened this morning. I was actually deer hunting in my stand on my place behind the house. I decided to pack just a single call while laying out clothes last night, the call was a Carver Rabid rabbit. I decided to shift gears and get away from deer hunting. So I pulled the little Carver call out of my pocket. Gave it a nice simple short sequence and put it back in my pocket. She responded to the call Id say within 5 minutes so she had to be close. With the ground being soaking wet from recent rain and the CONSTANT ringing in my ears I have to wonder how I heard her come in, but I did. I reached and skinned my sixgun from my chest rig and took aim. As she stopped I thumbed the hammer, and focused on the front sight. She moved again going to some minor cover, thorns and twigs and such. She took two more steps, stopped and I broke the shot! I saw her fall, get back up and I thumbed the hammer again preparing to take a moving shot. But it wasnt necessary, she was down! The shot was 40-45yds with a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk Flat top in 44spl. The boolit (bullet) is a 245gr penta hollow point I cast. It was pushed by a healthy dose of H110 with a magnum spark plug. Ive been wanting this for a while and it finally happened! Not exactly the way I saw or planned but nonetheless I got it done. To me it was a little special, it was on my place, with a boolit I cast and loaded, with the handgun I took my first deer with that too was on my property, just 6yrs later.
