    what did you use? I've got a .17 hmr leaning up agains the back door. No lie- I can put 3 out of 5 shots in a quarter at 50 yards. Most accurate thing I own.

    Mine got hold of a mouse for the first time Wednesday. I'd heard other people talk about it, but this was the first time I'd seen them in action firsthand. It was so strange -- the one who caught the mouse ran ALL over the yard with it just dangling from its beak with all the rest in hot pursuit. It was [​IMG] [​IMG] , but at the same time [​IMG] ewwww.... another day, another adventure in ChickenLand [​IMG]
