Mannyback in the ole self bow days I use to read about your mongoose hunting exploits durning your hog hunts. Do you still take a few with your pcps. Iron Hand
Manny thanks for the reply. Here in Ca. small game is the only game in town so I make the most of it. Don,y have a pcp yet but saving my pennies. Just made up a 1322 with all the mods which will be my new cottontail ground squirell, starling gun. Kind of a poormans pcp. Have a break barrel but just like the pumpers better. Hope you haven,t given up on building those self bows, you are a pure artist at it. Iron Hand
This is exactly the kind of info that I feel should be shared in an air rifle hunting gate for critters taken at 12 fpe on up... the more you know about the anatomy of your prey the better. these are great for showing brain case thickness and angles for those that have never seen them... a very good guide for go no go shot choices IMO...Thanks, educated hunters is what will do the most to advance Air rifle Hunting...
I see allot of hunters who dont visualize the target as a 3 dimensional target. Instead they look at it as a flat piece of paper. So they have trouble making clean head shots for example because they dont compensate for the different angles and directions the pellet needs to enter at for a proper brain shot depending on the position of the head.
Where do you put the skulls so scavengers/weather doesn't get to them? I shot one with a .308 about a week ago and want the skull.
