Given all the circumstances, what would you consider the best shot you ever made on game or varmints? One of those situations where everything just came together. It could be a triple on geese or ducks, or a double on pheasants, a cross canyon shot, or shooting the nose off a peek-a-boo whistle pig.
Mine was a paced off 180 yard open sight 22 lr shot on a pesky and elusive woodchuck in my mom's winter wheat field. Every time I would get within a hundred yards of him he'd go down his tractor axle breaking hole. After a while, I decided that if I couldn't kill him, maybe I could scare him into moving on to the next farm. The wind was right and I braced my shot on Mom's grape arbor. It hit way short, but sent him down his hole. About an hour later I looked out the window and there he was chowing down on the profits. This time I aimed about twenty yards behind him and squeezed one off from my Dad's not so tack driving JC Higgins 22. Much to my surprise I saw the chuck hunch up and no dust kicked up. He crawled to his hole and disappeared, never to be seen. There was a small bit of blood on the ground by the hole. Mom was able to pay the taxes for another year. No tractors were actually harmed due to the results of my dead eye shooting.
