    You don't have to ask me twice! I'd love it..............I'm sure the same applies for Eli.

    I have fond memories of the year when I shot 20 rabbits out of my window in my wife's garden with my pellet rifle

    Your Ruger 77/22 should be a good deterrent for them. I remember summers in ky shooting near 50 that were in mom and dad's garden, early in the mornings and late just before dark were prime time. I upgraded the trigger in my 77 and it wears a leupold 4x it's a rabbit or squirrels worst nightmare, also hell on those big snapping turtles which get into the pond and kill the ducks. I shoot cci 36gr mini mags and they don't stand a chance, I tried a rather long shot around 90yd with them and flat smoked the rabbit at that distance he jumped and made it about 10 hops before he was done. I still try for head shots because we love to eat them. Good luck and happy hunting, or a... pest control

But you really should go to your local gardening center or walmart and get some tree wrap for the base of your young apple trees cost a few dollars and keeps all of the rodents and rabbits from eating girdling your young trees I use it all of the time !
