Very impressive shot. 50 yards is beyond my comfort zone. Your area certainly does look DRY!
Not exactly a hunting story, but it very well may turn into one. Last night, I let my families little Yorkie (Annie-3.5lbs) out at about 10 o'clock. She immediately runs towards the back fence and starts barking. My GSD (June) was already inside with my brother for the night sleeping so it was just her. I got curious so I grabbed the flashlight and ran out after her. What do I see as I get closer, but a Bobcat staring at her from the outside of the fence. As I shined the light on it, it hissed at me, but just continued staring at my little dog. Hmm. I quickly scooped up Annie and made a retreat towards the house. This is not the first time I've seen her. As she lives in the field/mountain behind my house, and I've seen it watching us while we hunted a couple times. This is the very first time I've seen it come so close to the house, though. I did not particularly like the way it was staring at my sisters dog. I am not sure what I want to do with it. I have enjoyed it's company up until now, and have enjoyed seeing it periodically in the area. But I can't have it eating Annie. About 2 years ago my neighbor had one of his dogs taken by a cougar that lives on the Mt. I really don't want to repeat that story. I think I'll give it a pass as long as I don't see it near the house in the day, as both dogs sleep inside and the only time in the day that Annie is outside, June is out with her. I really don't think it would try something with the big German Shepherd out, what do you guys think// what would you do?
I'm really enjoying these chronicles and looking forward to more. All the more interesting when someone else's landscape and opportunities are different from mine.
Austin, throw $240 Mike's way and get the XS60c PCP package in .22. Then tune it for max with 20gr + heavies, you may only have a 10 shot string....but that should be 9 more than needed.
