It’s a safe bet that probably a good many deer hunters among us cut our teeth years ago with a .22 rifle and squirrels, and it was a lot of fun that we still enjoy.
Popping targets with a .22 rifle always is fun, whether you’re at the range zeroing on a static target or in the woods lining up a head shot on a bushytail in a tree. The .22 rimfire is a great training tool and, well, they’re just enjoyable.
Throw in some explosive targets and long-range scopes from Hawke Optics, and you could be shooting 200-yard shots like these!
