I'm a rifle guy, I hunted em with a 410 shotgun when I was a kid & that was all we had. After years of experimenting I settled on my 77/22 ultra-lite boat-paddle in LR with a Leupold 2-7. Its favorite chow is Win Power-points. What do you use?

Old Marlin M39A with an aperture sight. I have other rifles, including a boat paddle stainless 77/22, but the old Marlin is just pure fun in the timber.

Belgium made T-bolt with a Weaver K-10. Although there are others, based on mood !

I still have the .410 single that I got when I was seven. It has been used by a few family members, but I track it down and get it back. It is an old Kresge. Well, old, as in 1977-ish.

^ The .410 we had was an old H&R given to us by a friend of my dad's. I think one of my cousin's youngsters has it now.

I don't get to chase squirrels very often, but when I do I like to use Savage 93R17 TR or a Smith and Wesson SW22 with a red dot. Both are accurate and fun.

Either a savage 93R17 GV .17hmr or remington 870 12ga. I love both, used the 17 for the past ten years and finally added a shotgun to the mix when I moved back to ohio this fall. Early season when there are still leaves on the trees I favor the 17, no issues sneaking around. Once things thin out/rabbit season opens I almost always have the 870.
