    I was enjoying an afternoon at the local archery range practicing for an up and coming New Mexico archery elk hunt when I was so rudely interrupted by this fellow.

    Obviously I stopped shooting and gave him the right of way!

    Enjoy,

    Looks like he was checking the electrical box to see if you have been shooting at stuff you shouldn't. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    This little fellow is off limits due to the fact that he lives in a suburban park, but the big bull below is fair game and has a death sentence!

    I have had this happen with deer a bunch of times while target shooting. Be blasting away and have a deer raise his head up from behind the berm or walk over in front of the targets. You ever see a deer with a pierced ear she is very old because I have not done one in a long time.

    Nice catch! If I had to guess, I would say somewhere on the Keani Penn?? The mountains give it away.

    Very cool!
    For me, its usually cattle. We raise registered polled hereford cattle... who for whatever reason seem to always want to graze in close proximity to whatever target im shooting. Few things are more annoying than getting targets set up at 1k+ then drive back to the firing line... only to have $70,000 worth of beef standing in line to scratch themselves on the target stand... then watch as the cows bed calves down around it.

    LOL!

    That would be annoying! Guess I would be having beef for dinner.
