    The only thing more entertaining would be watching a Japanese whaling ship, crushing the excrement out of the animal righter's carbon-fiber Batman boat.


    Now that was flipping hilarious. "A three-hour cruise..."

    Hmmmmm, judging by its size id say a good pheasant load should drop it. Maybe an 1 1/4 of #4 shot? Maybe one of those prarie storm 1550fps 1 1/4 loads. These people are just being stupid. BYG

    This sounds like a whole new sport coming our way! LOL

    I suppose we could have some kind of tournament among us if they have enough drones.

    I don't know, should we limit it to 7 1/2 shot? Or would double 00 buck work for best for those pesky little drones?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Hauxfan!

    There's been a new sport at the Big Sandy shoots of shooting down a flying RC airplane. It's very hard to hit.

    At the last shoot a couple of weeks ago, after the machinegunners ran their guns dry and were swapping mags or changing belts, my son Sean and another guy used rifles to shoot at the drone. They fired at the same time and the plane was hit and went down. They don't know if one or both hit it, or who hit it, so a tie was declared.

    I'd like to think Sean hit it, because I've seen him shoot a trotting coyote 175 yards out in the back of the head. He called his shot - "I'm going to shoot him behind the ear" - and he did exactly that.

    After you shoot it down, you should hold it up like it is a trophy, and take pictures. That would really piss them off. Add some dripping blood off of the drone. Big smile on your face.

    They could be facing some hunter harassment charges for drones.
