    Quarters work

    Some if yall probably already knew this method but i had never used quarters before to call in squirrels until yesterday. This one literally came out of the top of a tree and posted up 15 yards in front of me after i used the quarters to mimic the cutting sound they make.

    in search of a rifle scope

    I have an old Mauser action 7x57 mm that I had drilled and tapped for a scope. I'm not looking for the biggest baddest optic out there but something that'll do just fine around 100 - 150 yards. I don't typically shoot further than that any way. any suggestions?
