A little Google Earth picture test - what is the pic of???

Along the lines of goodgroupers post about Google Earth:

Below is a picture from Google Earth. Can you tell me what the 3 objects indicated by arrows are??? I believe the pic is from about 8000-10000 feet elevation with some slight cropping. I'll post the pic with the objects identified shortly.

    I cheated. I downloaded the picture and blew it up. Looks like a person on the right and a person on the left. To the left edge and right edge are some bullet backstops. Thing in the center is a run over possum.

    Hmmm, Looks like your typical low organic matter Washington dirt.

    On the far right is a cinder cone or some such thing that makes a good back stop.

    Given the convenient field road and your laziness (just gettin' back at cha for being mean on the other thread [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) and guessing some distances (if I had the Lat/Lon of the pic I could tell you distances to the foot)

    So I'd guess its you walking to the 100 yd back stop (if it were 200 you'd be driving [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).

    The object on the left is a rig with the tail gate down and Hmmm is that a an Ithaca 12ga slug gun [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Pretty neat timing of the pic, huh! You never know when Big Bro. is watching. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Very interesting.

    Screech has two objects right, but out of order. That, coupled with what Kirby said, should help you out a lot. Oh yeah, Kirby has seen this picture before. That should help.

    You've got that right. You'll see what I mean when I post the pic with details.
