1 at 58 yards and 1 at 62 yards.
After starting my morning off sighting in and plinking and shooting some "PREHUNT" video, i went to one of my LOCALES for another ground squirrel adventure. I trully love hunting these little critters and as usual, i HAVE to break out my Rapid .25 cause the wind started to kick up earlier that morning and i knew that i probably would struggle with my Logun Solo .20. My R.25 is such an accurate and powerful beast, the gun actually spoils me by NEVER letting me down. If i miss, IT'S MY FAULT...lol.
The 2 squirrels in the video were the last 2 of the day and they were 2 out of 7 for the day. The first ground squirrel at 58 yrds dropped instantly without even so much as a flicker of the tail or any twitching of its limbs. After reviewing the video a few times, it looks like as he's chewing on an acorn, the pellet enters his mouth and exits the rear of his cranium. This was definitely the first time i've dropped a GS with not even so much as a twitch. He was dropped literally right in his tracks.
The 2nd squirrel right behind him ran forward a foot or two and stopped right in front of a big rock and right outside of his hole. Its just amazing how these little critters run for there holes whenever the don't understand what going on around them. Mother natures instincts in animals is amazing to watch. Upon the shot, i see the squirrel fall from the shot the start doing the break dance of death in front of the rock. In the videos slow motion segment, you will also notice that as the pellet exits the nape of the gs' neck, it makes a .25 caliber indention in the rock. I'm surprised the BIG OLE .25 did not push that rock back about 3 feet.....lol
