Id like to find a squirrel dog or someone who trains them but i havent found much of anything. Im leaning toward a fiest but i dont know much about curs. Are they hard to train or should i lean toward one that has already been trained?
Most any dog with a high prey drive will chase and tree squirrles. I have sled dogs that I hunt squirrels and snowshoe hare with. They are silent but I keep them in visual contact at all times.. I didn't train them. I just let nature take its coarse.
Fiests and curs are probably best at it. I know a guy who uses his wife's Jack Russell Terrorists.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
