I am pretty sure the boy has been dinking around with the sights on my air rifle. I missed this guy twice from about ten yards and i had him dead to rights in my spotlight. So since i had him blinded by the spotlight i just walked up and grabbed him. Winner winner, chicken dinner. Don't need no stinking rifle!

in the early fifty's, we would straddle the headlights on the car and shoot w/.22's, when we ran out of ammo we used tire iron, the mink ranch pd .50 a piece, we would pile them up in shed (freezing temps) load a small trailer.


hold on Newt, we got a runaway

Fun times in the 50's, lots of spotlight action from the back of pickups. Hoo Woo!

Years ago we hunted Pheasants near Hereford and one of the farmers showed how to hunt rabbits and catch them by hand. The rabbits would hide in the irrigation pipe. Just put a full can of oil in one end, tilt up the pipe and grab the rabbit as it was pushed out the other end. Just make sure its a rabbit in the pipe first, not some
smelly other animal.



A clear conscience is often the sign of a fuzzy memory.

A can of oil? I haven't heard of that in many years.
