Some cold weather varmint bashing
« on: February 11, 2019, 03:30:46 AM »
Hey all, decided to head out early with a friend of mine to scout out some areas for Springtime. We arrived around 6:00 am with the temperature around 33 degrees. Haha bit cold with some snow on the ground from day before. We sat in the truck for a few hours till the sun came up making for a beautiful morning. I had not expected to see many ground squirrels if any. My main goal was to scout a new area for some Springtime Varmint hunting and to gather some video and photos of the gun. As the morning warmed up we ended up spotting quite a few dirt rats moving about. I had brought my movie camera to film for part of a review I'm currently working on. I was using a European Air Arms S510XS .25 PCP, a very fine and accurate rifle. Over the day we managed to smash down about 20 before heading on down the road. Most were taken between 65 and 100+ yards.



It was a beautiful day out and can see that this Spring will be an epic year for Ground Squirrel hunting. Hope to share more as it comes in! 8)

Not a cloud in the sky! Looks like a beautiful day there, minus the chill. Do you find issues with shot count in colder weather?

Yeah the Shot count will lower but I rarely go through a full shot string on hunts like this. Many times I'll leave the gun in the sun to warm it up a bit.
