With the coming of Summer, hunting possibilities change, typically for the better. Prairie dogs, ground squirrels, and gophers are all fair game. And so are pigeons, Eurasian doves, and house sparrows. Oh goody!

QuoteMunich, August 2002. Anjali Bhagwat had just won the ISSF Champions Trophy, a standalone competition in the 10m air rifle event featuring the year's best women shooters. Just as she was leaving the firing range, she was informed of another competition about to start -- the Champion of Champions, featuring the five best women squaring off against the five best men's shooters. "It wasn't official or anything but quite competitive. Eventually, one by one, all the guys were eliminated. Then it was just the women and finally it was just me," she recalls. She won $1000 as prize money and even today, despite her many achievements -- reaching an Olympic final, winning a World Cup, being ranked World No.1 -- she places this one-off title right up there.
