Relatively new hunter from Allegheny Co

Hi friends! This is only my second season. I didn’t grow up in a hunting family. Not sure if it’s a midlife crisis or what, but last year I asked a good friend to mentor me. I really enjoy it, even though I’ve yet to fill my first tag. Out in the woods right now. Saw a single squirrel, but I forgot the .22. These hollow point slugs probably won’t leave much in the way of eating. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. Look forward to learning new things. Be blessed!

Welcome. I don't recommend 22 hollow points unless they are short hollow points my favorites. Shoot them in the head and be sure you have a good back stop as the 22's will travel a mile or more. Be safe...have fun....

Welcome! Not a mid-life crisis thing. That's relegated to red sports cars, Harley's... and trophy wives.
