Thinking 10am would.  Then go until dark or everyone decides there done shooting. Should be a good time. 10 AM Gives us time to get settled in while the heat wave hits haha. Your welcome, been wanting to do something like this for years since GTA fun shoot moved farther away 😔. Should be lots of shooting lanes available. Plenty of parking. Getting excited and nervous haha. Lanes will be facing south. Targets a few yards out to 150 ish yard in case anyone wants to stretch some. Like I said before, the 13 lined ground squirrels and any starling are fair game while here.

Thanks again for hosting this Brandon.
I can't move around to fast and am not an early riser so we will probably arrive a little late.

i have 8 squirrels i could put in the crock pot if someone would like to bring buns and sides.
8 squirrels won't feed an army, but it's a start, and a good way to try it for your 1st time.

let me know, i'll have to take 5 out of the freezer today.

I'd be glad to bring the buns! It would be my 2nd time; I had squirrel in a stir fry about 30 years ago and enjoyed it!  ;D

that would be great.


i had my 3000psi scuba and 4500psi scba tanks filled today.  the squirrels are defrosting and i'll pack the truck tomorrow.


i also bought 500 paint balls for a little fun competition.


if someone has yarn, we can hang them at various ranges to help judge the wind.


i'm bringing my range finder to measure target distances.

I have some Paracord for hanging items. Also have a large piece of metal that I will use as a gong. Should have some paint in the garage for painting targets

Squirrel linguine alfredo?  :D
My wife is making brownies and we'll bring a couple large bags of chips. If I think of something else to get, I'll pick it up on the way.

I have a bunch of splatterburst stick-on targets that I'll bring along too, and maybe some boxes to stick them on. Do you need any tables & chairs? I can bring a card table & some folding chairs if needed.

Tables and chairs will come in handy if anyone has extra that they can bring. I have a bunch of empty pop cases that we can place out with splatter bursts on them. Bring empty plastic bottles also if anyone has them laying around. We can use the blast caps on them. If i remember today i will go to the small cheese producer down the road and get some fresh cheese to put out.

I brought my wife to the ER early this morn and they just called a surgeon in. She is being admitted so it doesn't look like i will be attending.


If anyone is passing near Somonauk, i can run home and give you the squirrels.  They are thawed, but still in the vacuum sealed bags and refrigerator.

Much better than last time 🤪. Wind will be the biggest obstacle I am guessing. But will be good practice!
