so far this year I've just used the .22 Pellet rifle (one of my standby's), got the .32 flintlock ready to roll when ever the mood hits, and getting the Browning BL22 ready for action this weekend (also for when the mood hits) ;D

I've always wanted to give a 32 or 36 caliber muzzle loader a try for squirrels but never got around to it,maybe next year.

If I wasn't hunting , what would I do?

the small muzzleloader is tons of fun and as cheap (or cheaper at todays prices) than a .22 LR. Only draw back is cleaning.

I've been using the 10/22 with a green mountain sporter barrel. I have a Henry on order with Santa Clause. I'll be using that come January.

I've been hunting with an EAA bounty hunter 22/22mag and a smith 22A for years and maybe if I live long enough I'll actually hit one.
I do carry my cricket but haven't fired it in anger for a while.

My 22A has a bunch of rounds through it and I like it a lot but for little critters up to the size of stray dogs, my Chipmunk Hunter in 22WMR has jumped to the forefront. I've had this thing for a while now and still haven't put glass on it. I've been fascinated with the fire sights and my ability to shoot it accurately off hand. The starlings that crap on everything I own have discovered how tough payback can be.

I switched from handgun back to rifle when I bought my first CZ 452 Lux with peeps. First hunt this fall I shot three offhand at about 40 yards in 5 minutes. My whole hunt lasted 20 minutes lol.

Was using my good ole Model 60 and H&R 903 target revolver for back-up, but just beginning to try a centerfire .22 in the form of a downloaded .223 Rem. Shooting some 46gr. Winchester Jacketed bullets at about 1200 mimicing a .22 lr. I attached the heavy barrel to my .45-70 BC frame and got perfect lockup, so hopefully will have 50 to test with in the woods later today.
