I don't think your flaming me, I just believe you had to be there to understand why I did what I did.suburbanhomesteader said:I'll probably get flamed for this, but seriously??!!!
One of the first things my dad taught me when I got my first BB gun was "don't shoot at anything unless you know what you're shooting at at can hit it where you want to hit it".
45 years later I can't think of a time I haven't followed those rules.
I think it needs to be said that it is pretty irresponsible to shoot at moving grass.
I follow the very same rule, but in this case, I watched "it" (hind legs and tail part) run into the ditch,under matted down grass(not tall standing prairie grass that a man could hide behind) and was trying to get to the pipe. I didn't think it would be to wise to get down on my hands and knees,look in the water filled pipe, and THEN try to shoot it.
Sometimes... you just have to let your instincts take over....... If you have to stop and think about it, your gonna lose every time.
