Are you close to the fires down that way?

They sure look bad.

My daughter and I are hunting Skunks this fall, no Mule deer, Moose or Elk.
One friends son got a tag for either sex moose and another friends son got a either sex Mule deer tag so at least a couple of young hunter got something.
We used to have a regular clientele for our hunting cabins but it is so long between getting drawn we don't know some of the hunter showing up anymore.


I saw some with scopes,which barrel do you sight in?

What happens if your cross eyed? :o ???

"The rifle comes in both side by side and over/under configurations and in calibers ranging from .470 Capstick down through the .416 Remington Magnum and .375 Holland & Holland Magnum for African and Asian safaris. Calibers then drop to include the European 9.3 x 62mm, 8 x 68S, and the old standby American .30/06 all the way down to the diminutive .17 HMR rimfire."

What's the smallest caliber that you would trust to protect yourself?

Here's her story in her own words:
"While out walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in 'The Villages' with my soon to be ex-husband, discussing property settlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft. alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging us with its large jaws wide open.  She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive."

"If I had not had my little Beretta .25 caliber pistol with me, I would not be here today!"

"Just one shot to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took. The gator got him easily, and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.  The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible, and his life insurance was a real big bonus!"

I have never seen a double barreled rifle like that, just the over under with different caliber barrels. :)

My daughter and my cousin went out shooting gophers today. My daughter was using her new CZ LUX 17HMR and my cousin a airline pilot took my second hand Stevens 17HRM and my Ruger 10-22.
Well they were having so much fun with the 17's they never used the Ruger. My cousin paced off 105 yards shot my daughter made on a gopher just using her Honda ATV for a rest. They had gophers flying through the air and Britt even shot 2 little ones with one shot. A gopher isn't much of a target for 105 yards. :)



"Hillary Clinton's 506-page memoirs has come out.  So much of her personality shines through, that in the end, you, too, will want to sleep with an intern." ~ Craig Kilborn


"In Hillary Clinton's new book 'Living History’, Hillary details what it was like meeting Bill Clinton, falling in love with him, getting married, and living a passionate, wonderful life as husband and wife. Then on page two, the trouble starts." ~ Jay Leno


"In the book she says when Bill told her he was having an affair, she said 'I could hardly breathe, I was gulping for air.'" No, I'm sorry, that's what Monica said. ~ David Letterman


"Hillary Clinton, our junior senator from New York, announced that she has no intentions of ever, ever running for office of the President of the United States. Her husband, Bill Clinton, is bitterly disappointed. He is crushed. There go his dreams of becoming a two-impeachment family." ~ David Letterman


"Last night, Senator Hillary Clinton hosted her first party in her new home in Washington. People said it was a lot like the parties she used to host at the White House. In fact, even the furniture was the same." ~ Jay Leno


"CNN found that Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in America. Women admire her because she's strong and successful. Men admire her because she allows her husband to cheat and get away with It."~ Jay Leno


"Hillary Clinton is the junior senator from the great state of New York. When they swore her in, she used the Clinton family Bible – the one with only 7 commandments." ~ David Letterman

It wasn't that much fun to start as i helped the wife put up 2 more LED yard lights to help with calving. I'm so lucky she doesn't like to run the loader tractor so she lets me lift her up to change the light. ;D
 ;D  After coffee with Dad I take a load of alfalfa pellets out with the Power wagon to coax a herd of cows in closer for calving. I didn't get far before I had to shoot some gophers.I emptied one clip on the 10/22 reloaded and emptied that one again. I then remembered I had another clip so I grabber but it was empty :-[ :-[ so I figured I had better get going. Turns out most of the cows were 4 miles north of the house. They have been getting fed pellets so they trailed along pretty good.On my way back I saw 23 elk in the distance. To far for a decent phone picture. I did get lucky as I think I got all but 3 head into the calving pasture.About 200 head followed the old red dodge pretty well. :)

While some of you guys are hunting Turkeys, some Hogs and even Bear will be starting soon. I am shooting gophers on snow banks. :D Usually the snow is gone before many gophers come out and sometimes we get a late snow that they run around in but this year is the coldest and snowiest I have ever seen them out. The 17HMR rides in the hay feeding tractor and the Ruger 10/22 rides in the Power wagon. Nice to get a few cleaned up early before the little ones are out.
Anybody that doesn't know what a gopher is Google Richardson Ground Squirrel.
