For all the desert dwellers (shooting in the snow and wind)
« on: January 27, 2020, 06:04:47 AM »
I guess you can blame an unusually early case of cabin fever for this video.  While it has been a fairly easy winter here in Central New York  (so far, we're about 25 inches behind average in snowfall) but the winds this year have been much higher than "normal".  So shooting  has taken a back seat for a while.  Well, I had two mostly empty tins of pellets and figured shooting on a snowy and windy day would be a good way to finish them off...   

I don't have a scope cam or anything fancy, but feel free to join me in my backyard for some shooting :-)

Wow, really like your range and cabin!  Here in Kansas seams like the wind always blows.
A warm day today with only 5 mile/hr wind so we are heading to the outdoor range today. 
Snow coming tonight, don't think I will shoot then.  Thanks for your video.

And to think, I was dedicated to the sport!! Trudging through the snow, is beyond my level of endurance. A cozy fire, nice movie on the boob tube, and some hot, spiced tea with a shot of schnapps! Now that is real dedication, don't you think?

Thanks for the kind words guys.  And Alan, it's not an "either-or" thing.  One of the best parts of coming inside is heating up a cup of apple cider with a shot (or two...) of a little sumthin-sumthin  :-)

I'm a chip off the old block. My father always liked Schnapps. Every hunt I ever went with him on (there were hundreds!), he always had his coffee additive with him. But only after the hunt was over!
