We've had a bumper crop over here in West Idaho this year. Went out Tuesday night and got probably a couple dozen, that was just incidental. Only went out to get serious on the main colony one day so far this year. Usually I get a few every time I go to the range as there is a fair sized colony right on our rifle range. Little idiots show up right in the field of view of your scope as you are shooting a group. Hard to put that fifth shot on the paper, if you know what I mean. Ranging is no problem as they will be on the 100 yard berm, 200, 300 or whatever.

I normally use either a bolt action .22 or a bolt action .223 sporter weight rifle, but have used a .243, .270, .308, 30-06, .30-30, .338 Win Mag and even got a couple at 200 yards with a .375 H&H!
