Wow! Time flies. I meant to have this finished and posted a week ago. I've been super busy helping our son with his business, and that's a good thing, but it has definitely cut into my playing time. I finally had a chance to complete the day two story, and videos, from my last hunt with my Marauder pistol/carbine. It's posted below.
I was out bright and early on day two. Once again, the weather was forecast to be just about perfect, sunny with temps in the high sixties, and I wanted to make the most of it.
I almost took my AA 410CRBSL Carbine with me on this hunt, but when it was time to leave for Califonia, I went for the Marauder Pistol again. This is one of those guns that I just can't get enough of. It is so handy to hunt with. Plenty of power for my application. If you've watched any of the previous videos of hunts with it, the accuracy speaks for itself, and the light weight makes it so easy to carry, that I have a hard time putting it down.
There are other places on the ranch, where longer range shooting is required, and a 30+ fpe rifle is the best choice for those, but in these steep canyons, with their close quarter, 30 to 60 yard shots, a nice light gun like this Marauder pistol/carbine makes a lot of sense.
I headed back into the same general area I hunted the day before, but hunted a bit more East. Once again, I was soon spotting ground squirrels in the piles of deadfall, on stumps, and sitting on old logs. I got in a full day of hunting, and took some good video clips of a lot of the shots.
This years crop of mini vermin were thick as flees on a hounds back. I may go back with one of my FWB 300S rifles, and have a mini squeak hunt. I've done that in the past, and it is a ton of fun. The 300S will drop them in their tracks out to around 45 yards.
Below, are a bunch of video clips from the hunt. If you listen closely, in many of the slomo clips, you will hear two impacts. The first is from the pellet impacting the squirrel, and the second, immediately following, after a complete pass through, is the pellet impacting something behind the squirrel, .
The following video may take 20/30 seconds to load, and runs a bit over 4 minutes. Thanks for watching.
I wish now, that I had been keeping track of the number of kills made with this Marauder pistol/carbine. It has been very impressive to say the least. Until next time, thanks for reading and watching.
