    Finally I've got the Leupold 1X DRS on my 45/70. The original mounts wouldn't fit the Weaver rail so the secretary of the local rimfire range where I'm a Range Officer knew a bloke who imports a lot of European gear had a set of rings that would go very close to fitting the Weaver rail.
    As it turned out I had to do a little filing on the rail to get the new rings to fit and 5 minutes later jobs right..................now just got to get the 405gn pills going in the same direction as the Red Dot.

    The Wife shouted at me as I sat in the Livingroom at 3:44 pm today. What in the world was that?
    She said looking out the Front Livingroom Window. What was that? I think it was some kind of a cat?
    I advised are you sure, could it have been a coyote. She advised NO I am sure it was some kind of a cat!
    So I took my Rhino and went down to the Trail Camera which is 80 yards away from the House in the Front Yard, that would have taken a picture in the area. And here is what we had! Mr. BOB!

    Yes they do! Sounds like a lady screaming in the woods. Years ago one of our Labs had one treed in the back yard. You should have heard it! I went out and called her away. Because if that Bobcat would have decided to come down and fight it would have not been a good situation.:eek:

    Was that Squirrel born this Spring?
    I am a hunter as well. But love wildlife and nature. I use to Fox hunt a lot. A friend of mine had shot a Red Fox Vixen and he knew she had Pups. So they dug up the Den and found the baby foxes. I took one of them, who's eyes were not even open yet. Bottle fed her and named her Ginger. She was even house broke believe it or not. However when we would returned home after being gone for a while you could not speak to her before you letter out to pee. If you did she would get excited and start tinkling on the floor on the way out. We had Her for a few years, then she went to live with my Brother in law. Until she was unfortunately hit by a car running and playing with the neighborhood kids. How long have you had this little Squirrel or just recently found it?
