Came home from early gardening chores out back this morning and saw a few crows behind the house.  Even though they're not "in season", they can still be taken out under certain circumstances according to law:  causing a nuisance is one of the exceptions.  Since they raid the nests of songbirds, I don't want 'em around.  Just don't appreciate the bullies.


Got to the garage where I keep my old Marlin model 81 bolt action rifle (vintage 1937) topped with a Hawke scope.  Scope has parallax adjustment and I keep it on 30 feet for ground squirrels and red squirrels out the garage window.  Ammo is CCI CBs, 29-grain bullets at a mere 710 fps.  Wimpy stuff but plenty good enough for normal rodent control.


However, I estimated the shot to be between 50-75 yards so I moved the parallex accordingly and turned up the magnification and held over some 4 inches.


The rather large varmint fell over dead at 64.2 yards.

Looks like I'm showing the wrong gun, dang it.  That's another garage gun, an old Remington.  But, it's the right crow.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again..



20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !




RIP Chris Miller

I'd call you Jeramiah  aka  "crow killer" but that would be offensive to the crow nation. so I will just say ,well done !

if you build your life upon a firm foundation , 

the storms of life won't blow it down!

Well done indeed, the doves around here are really annoying, when ever we have a minute we try to reduce the population.
