I'll be there with the rimfire and a 2240 sidearm.  Is a .223 too much gun for jacks asssuming it's legal to hunt with assault rifles if I only use a 5 rnd mag?
The marauder is out, since I haven't taken out the regulator to retune it for max fpe.  Besides ranging beyond 50 yds with my scope is iffy.
Is there quail out there too?  season's almost over.
Looks like I gotta be on the road by 4:30 am.........

Sounds like fun guys - how did it go?  I've never been hunting before but maybe I'll look into a 22 rimfire and you guys can show me the ropes some time.

It was cold but we were spotting squirrels average range 75-100+ yards out. Rich spotted a cottontail but that was it for rabbits. Were going back out again when the weather warms a bit.

Thanks for the info and pictures Rich.  Not to hijack an airgun forum but what steps would I need to take to be 'legal' to go out and shoot there?  I imagine some kind of class and/or registration?  Any recommendations on a gun?  I would have to think there must be a ton of good condition used .22 LR's out there.
