    I inherited this J. Stevens single shot 12 gauge from my paternal grandfather 28 years ago and had never taken it on a hunt. This morning I grabbed a pocketful of 7.5 dove loads and killed 5 squirrels in this pecan tree. Good times. 78FF60C5-A306-4D34-9D66-A866F43C65B4.jpeg

    Close to where I hunt
    Back in those days , hunters only took out as many shells as needed for Dinner , not like today where a bandolier is needed for a limit !
    Those old timers made sure of their shots , close enough to kill it but where only a few pellets were in the meat ! Some hunters have lost that ability ?

    This should be a front page story!

    How are you going to cook them?

    They’re in the freezer now, but they’ll probably in up floating in a gumbo.

    We didn't have many grey squirrels in the woodlots western Ohio when I was growing up, but we had foxsquirrels.
    Momma would take in babies and fry'em, make mashed taters, and gravy over the drippings, make some dinner rolls, some asparagus, maybe some corn, and a nice, big, cold glass of milk... YUMMY!
    I miss squirrel hunting.
