Absolutely! Got my first one on Sunday and missed another. Went out yesterday just to look and even though it was horribly cold with the wind, I saw one out. Tried to sneak closer (had to because of crazy rule of not being allowed to shoot across the road *wink*) and it holed up. Sat for an hour waiting but it never came back out. Probably realized how warm it was inside the hole compared to outside.
Been taking my 17 HMR Ruger Single Six over to the farm, have a couple tunneling under the old house and another building. Shots will be about 20 to 30 yds. Park the truck and wait about 20 mins. they will come back out, haven't had a good clean shot yet but it will come. Using 20gr. HP's.
bluedog, this is a response to your other post on shooting steady.
This is my Stoney Point tripod with rifle/pistol arm. I use this for yote hunting and when I use my Contender pistols for deer hunting. The rig is very light weight and so is the stool. All of the yote calls and decoy rabbit fit in the stool's pouch. Got both at Cabela's.
We used to have a guy that would follow us every once an a while and go pick the dead ones out of the field, claiming he was gonna eat them. I've never really been to inclined to have a taste for myself though...
My first try using my camera tripod with a cloth gun rest strapped on top. Must admit that I missed my 1st shot. She went down an old piece of steel pipe and when she stuck her head out for a look-see, I did not miss again. I like the increased stability of the tripod. If I ever need it camo'd, I do have some camo blind material I can use to wrap around the legs. Didn't need it tonight. Oh and it was a female. Absolutely no sign of mammary development. They have not been out and about for very long around here.
