My wife the hunter.

My wife has always enjoyed shooting, but a week or so ago she went hunting with me for the first time. Nothing exotic like a trip to Outer Boogledooshia for great Ibex or anything. Just a walk down to the bottom of the hill, to see if we could see a squirrel to shoot.



Well, she saw this one. One shot from her Wally World 10/22 at about ten yards....maybe. First time she'd ever killed anything,except maybe a spider.







Yesterday, she shot a shotgun for the first time in years. 12 ga. pump. She handled it just fine, especially considering the last time she fired a shotgun was when her ex-husband thought it would be funny to slip her 3" mag buckshot shell without telling her or instructing her how to hold the gun. It about kicked the fire out of her. After a few birdshot shells, she was ready to try "the big one." She handled even the mag buckshot shell this time with no problem, just a big grin.



This morning we're going back "down the hill" to see what we see.

Well we came in early. She didn't get anything, and her back started to bother her after a couple of hours. I did kill a squirrel with the shotgun before we headed back to the house so she could do some baking.



After I got her back to the house, I traded the shotgun for a 10/22, and slipped my 22/45 with the red dot, in my vest pocket. Later I killed my first squirrel with a handgun, my first anything actually with a handgun, and another with the 10/22.



I guess that's a trifecta for the day.

Hello CajunBass, Good hunting. I've posted this recipe before someplace on this forum, but in case you missed I thought I would again. Your wife may want to try it. Cut up, salt, pepper, flour, and fry the squirrel golden brown. Then put it in one of those old deep cast iron skellets, cover with chicken brooth, dice an onion or two, and any other spices you may like. Cook for about an hour. Yum, yum.
