For my blaze orange I bought a yard of it and wear it as a head rag and wrap some around my arms sometimes when I go in my duds.

Looks like all you guy's are doin pretty fair with the squirrels. Do most of you use .32 cal for them. The reason I'm asking is I'm looking to buying either a .32 or .40 next, something with a shorter barrel for the kids and girlfriend. My .50 is too heavy for any of them to shoot, unless it's on a bench at the range. Any ideals or comments are welcome.

Have any of you tried the Hunter orange weskits from Ohio Valley Peddler? They are in the back of one of the On the Trail magazines I have. They run from $125-$145 depending on size. They look good but just wondering if anyone has tried them out?

I havn't been hunting in traditional clothing yet, but plan to try it next deer season. I was thinking of wear a HO knit cap and a long scarf around my neck. I think I would meet the legal amount of square inches with the scarf ends hanging over my front and back and maybe add an orange sash. That would keep me worm and make me legal. Anyone have any other ideals or suggestions.

Thanks

.32 caliber rifles are great for tree rats, but they tend to foul up really fast. If you don't mind running a patch between shots go for the .32.They are pretty frugal to shoot too You can shoot buckshot {Hornady makes a .310} cheap if you don't cast your own. , 20 grains of FFFg kills squirrels with great ruthless abandon.

Don't have to jump from .32cal to .40cal all at one time. Lets not forget the .36cal. She's a sweet little lady to take out dancing. Small enough to be as slim and trim as the .32 and just enough more gumption to reach out a bit farther than the .32 with a little more smack. Then there's always the possibility that something a bit larger than a squirrel will show up (a fox maybe). I use my .32 most of the time, however I would never give up my .36. (Did I mention that she's real pretty). Verity, the spice of life.

I had a fellow (Bell & Company) make me a wesket out of blaze orange. In B&W photos, it just looks whiteish. He also had some head scarfs made of light weight silk like stuff in blaze orange. Those work well.
