I went out turkey hunting in the morning with the shotgun and didn't see or hear any birds... but squirrels were everywhere. So after about 3 hours, I couldn't take it any more and traded in the 12 ga. for the model 39A .22 for some spot and stalk action. The bushy-tails all came from private land that our family owns in Armstrong Co. The hunt reminded me of my young years of hunting. It was a good day to get back to my boyhood roots!!
