That's really interesting! I'm sure there is some history behind it! Thanks for the picture!

I just ask my dad about them and he says as far as he knows it was exactly as stated before, just practice during the WWII era, he doesnt think they were actually hunting coyotes and antelope but surely if they saw one it got fired upon.

I was talking with a friend that grew up near Jeffory City. He said they used to wach the plane shoot at a target towwed by another plane. He showed me an old sign that says GUNNERY RANGE ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. He said they quit doing it in the early fifties.
