Default Pasture poodles

Yesterday a buddy and I went out to help a rancher I know with a few prarrie dogs. I just gota Vortex Viper 6.5-20 and I mounted it on my AR. We didn't get them all but there are not as many as there were when we started. My furthest shot was about 350 yards. I also got a speeding ticket on the way up.

Rick, that's what he wrote me for. I was actually doing 59 in a construction zone. So I really can't complain. It's my first speeding ticket in 26 years.

If you ever decide to make a trip to this side of the pond, we can arrange that.
