Last time I was out west it was cherry season and I bought a whole flat of them and sat in my motel room and ate them till I got plum sick. Then I ate them for breakfast. Did I mention I love cherries? They are sooo expensive here. Count your blessings.

I use a .22. As soon as it drops, cut the juglar vein and they will bleed out nicely. Be careful if there are bulls around though. They get upset at the smell of blood.
