WELL
I tried to interest some of the Boyz to go kill some on our yearly gopher shooting extravaganza, the MYGAWDS 2017, but no takers.
OK
My buddy and I went and did extremely well.
It's not a long walk but far enough off the road to be virtually an UN-shot colony.
We got there around 9:00 am and shot continuously till 1:00 pm when we had to go. I managed to blow of near 150 22/250 shells and my buddy 1/2 that many more , AR affect...
No guess on the death toll but it was extensive.
Most shots around 175/200 yards but some at 50 and a fair amount 300 Plus. Great day for sure.

A different town , different mud .
