Beautiful animals

One of my favorites.

No trailer sign

CW, all I see is the picture of the cat. If you're out by Dumas, that's very surprising to me. I grew up in Clay County, some 17-18 miles northeast of Wichita Falls, and was by Dumas quite a few times, and never heard of any cats there. The last time I was deer hunting in TX was down by Brownwood, and every evening when the sun went down you could hear cats squaling/screaming. One was very close to my stand, but I never saw it. It wasn't hunting for me anyway. The guy who owned the land told us to shoot it if we saw it, but I wouldn't have. It wanted a deer, not me. I never even saw a buck that trip, except for a couple of spikes. I popped a couple of turkeys with a Single Six, which we smoked, but not a glimpse of a buck.

Trailer sign

Yes, now I remember it. I've slept since then! At my age, my memory's not as good as it once was. Come to think of it, several things aren't as good as they once were. Oh well, unless you die young it happens to everybody.
If the cat's close to Waco, that makes more sense. Lots more for the cat's prey to eat there.
I was amazed at how big all the animals, especially deer were in PA than in OK or TX. Good soil and lots of rainfall produced lots for them to eat. 150-160 pound does were in my yard all the time, and the bucks ran 200 pounds or better. There was nothing to prey on them except humans, so they were everywhere. Lots of turkeys too, and they weren't nervous or skittish. At times we'd have 15-20 eating bugs in my wife's garden and flowers.

Sounds good

We live in town now, so the only wildlife we ever see now is birds and some stray dogs. Sucks. I miss the various critters. Well, I don't miss the fucking groundhogs. They're only fit for coyote food.

I've had 3 other .22 pistols, never found one I liked. Maybe a Colt Woodsman or the similar Browning. I've never tryed them but they look comfortable.

Armadillos

My daddy used to call them "Hoover Hogs" since people in our part of the world killed and ate them during the depression. He always said they were good, so I shot one in our yard when I was about 15. He and I cleaned it and my mother cooked it on a spit over coals, and it was damned good. Now I don't think much of anybody eats them, even in the area where I grew up.
I tried eating a groundhog once in the early 1970s. Wasn't terrible, but wasn't all that good, either, at least to me. A farmer I knew had some on his place and asked me to try and kill them. I got four (I think it was), and we tried eating one because I wanted to try it. Never tried it again.
Me and the guys I grew up with used to go camping for a couple of weeks, and never took any food except flour for drop biscuits. We killed a bit of everything, and tried to eat it all. Most things were edible, except possums. They're greasy and just nasty. We roasted them, spitted them, fried them, you name it, and they were awful every way.

Possum

The only people I've ever known who ate them fairly regularly were really poor people who couldn't afford good meat.

Will your 1911A1 feed 230 gr lead SWC? Don't need to expand, just shoot it in the heart or in the neck to break the spine.

Ought to work well

I've used .357 with 158 gr SWC over 7.5-8.0 gr Unique, and if I hit them right they fell right down.
Well, I've got to get up and actually do something tomorrow, so I'll talk to you guys later.
