    well, I do live in the least picturesque and beautiful part of Canada. But There is no lack of Scenery and many little critters to be eaten.. I could always use a hunting buddy. however beautiful it seems here though, 4 or 5 months of the year the weather itself wants to kill you and tries hard..

    it WAS a fun day, though the frustration of trying to smack that quarter without losing it was immense. my hat's off to guys like Joey and Darrell who shoot small aerials regularly. it's not a difficult aspect to learn, and I do a bit better with a frame, but if you can manage this your target aquisition and fast-twitch reflexes increase exponentially in other areas of shooting.. also drinking that beer made my stomach rotten and I took today off work. stupid gluten...

    A level of cold I'm not used to I'm sure.. But the coyote is adaptable and its what has made it endure despite all odds..

    fair nuff Roger, I still like my frames the best but this is just an outlet to learn them better,.. I don't usually shoot at long distances either, but I figured since I was trying to put a little video together, why not? you may have noticed the camera change once I nicked it, I tried another 20 or so shots before I got too greedy about my ammo and gave up..

    Last summer I thought I'd try to do some instinctive aerial shooting using chick peas, figuring that I couldn't do much damage to myself... wrong. Skinned the back of my hand pretty good. More practice (and a glove) required...

    Love the bareback. Barking Squirrel? Huh. That's what I tell my wife when I accidentally fart outside. No wonder the foul stomach.
