    when i did airgun hunting it was hard to get close to quarry and field craft was very important
    now with 22 rimi its more important on bdc than ever as 35yrds was airgun range and rimi is from 50,120 yrds from what i have red
    i need to sort out a range finder then spend time working out bdc
    i dont like milldot scopes and too speed up i now have joined 101 target club.there shoot out to 1000yrds :D

    Amazing. That's a hell of a kill. Was it clean? I worry with the lower caliber.

    Just remember that, in Texas, it is illegal to hunt with anything that is not center fire.

    You can't use rimfire to hunt small game and/or varmints????? Something sounds funny about that but since I'm not in Tx I don't know for sure.

    Isn't that what IGETEVEN posted?

    What's the legal daily limit on bunnies in Texas?

    Yeah, well I didn't read down that far before I posted, so there! :rolleyes:

    There's no daily limit on rabbits... or racoons, prairie dogs, squirrels, hogs, or any other varmints in Texas.

    Saaaweeet. I'd be takin the bunnies all day long every day. That's some good eatin'. Here in Ohio, I won't hunt squirrel until after the first freeze. It kills the warbles and other paracites.

    ...you still have to have a hunting license w/ your Hunter Ed. card (if you were born after Sep 2, 1971), though. But you don't have to buy tags or anything...

    What about hunting your own land. License still needed?
