Jerked the shot. Blows my mind how the .308 bullet shows up even when not lit.

You're not the first one to miss a perfectly good chance! Of course, this is offset a wee bit, by those shots you shouldn't have made, even if you tried a dozen times!

From the dust, the soil is rather dry in your neck of the woods. And here I thought is was ALWAYS wet in Florida?

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Its actually wet here. We had heavy rain last week. The soil in these pine flat woods is of a type of white sand that drains quickly. All it takes is a couple days without rain and lower humidity and it will dry right out. Its great for blueberries. They like lots of water without standing in damp soil. That's why we have cactus that grows in the same type of woods. Even in spite of heavy rainfall, the moisture doesn't linger at the top of the soil.

Also, winter is the beginning of Florida's dry season. After November we won't have much rain until it gets close to spring. After the next couple of weeks I won't be surprised if things get good and dry. That's when what we call "ponds", which most people would call swamps, will dry out and it becomes possible to do work in them. I have such a "pond" on my back 5 acres of woods. It has a high ridge in the middle the deer like to bed on. It would be a fine place to hunt if I can make a quiet and dry way to walk to it. It will take the pond drying out before I can figure out how to engineer a trail thru it.

After watching this over a couple of times... There was a chance to get a double a couple of times. I can only remember one time in the last couple of years, when I actually tried to make a double happen—I did. But along the way, I've done so about 5 times by accident.

Nonetheless, a good try.
