Over the years I have enjoyed shooting pronghorn, mule and whitetail deer, elk, small game, birds, varmints and preditors. Since retiring 15 years ago and as my old body is wearing out most all of my shooting - hunting is prairie dogs. I live in prairie country and can shoot them any time I wont too. I enjoy trying out different brands of rifles and rimfire and centerfire cartridges. Sofare I have shot them with 17 HM2, 17 HMR, 17 Fireball, 17 Rem, 204 Ruger, 22 RF, 22WMR, 22 Hornet, 221 Fireball, 222 Rem, 223 Rem, 22-250 Rem, 220 Swift, 243 Win, and a few big game rifles. Im going to get a 17 Hornet and a Winchester 17 SM rimfire when they become available. I started reloading ammo in 1953 and still do. For me developing accurate reloads for each rifle and tuneing up rifles are all part of what makes shooting - hunting fun for me.

It would have to be squirrel hands down. I like to go out on a nice fall day, find a comfortable spot in the woods, sit down and relax. You can also get up when you want, move around, explore and seek out squirrels.

They are also very tasty to eat.

Duck - for the challenge and being close to the water.

Love busting pigs followed by foxes, feral cats and rabbits although I wouldn't mind having a crack at wild dogs or Dingos plus Buffalo.
