Shooting Running Game with a Rifle

The post-graduate course for the fancy rifle shot is shooting game. A running squirrel, or a cottontail is a fair mark upon which to test skilló in fact so far as the squirrel and the cottontail are concerned, I believe it is the only sportsmanlike method of killing them. Neither has much chance for its life in front of a shotgun, and little more when sitting before a rifle. Let bunny be bounding down a corn row, though, or circling through the trees, and he who trips him up with a small bore rifle has done something worth remembering. A squirrel, too, is a beautiful mark as he runs to the end of a limb where he pauses to make his leap just long enough to permit a lightning snapshot, then jumps, catches another limb, and hangs while the marksman pumps in another. Again he glides along a limb, barely showing the top of his back, while the gunner send splinters and bark flying before, behind, and under him, finally landing a bullet home.

For this work I would advise a heavier cartridge than the .22 short which will not kill half of the time it hits, especially with a tenacious little beast like a squirrel. The .22 rimfire is a good cartridge for this work, though I think the .25-20 is better. It should be borne in mind that no such quantities of ammunition will be used in game shooting as have been devoted to the tossed up targets.
