1150 Yards

I missed about 1.5MOA high and 2MOA right; that is wonderful! If I was
actually shooting at an enemy combatant, (which would be the only reason
I'd shoot at that range;) I would make the best shot I could,  observe
the hit, then adjust my POA for the follow-up shot. I don't really expect to hit that target in one shot.

Been A Rough Five Days

There was a blizzard on Friday, sometime from 9 to 11am some good Samaritan took my dog from the yard, evidently saving her from the blizzard. I searched for her and could not find any tracks due to the snow, so Saturday Morning I called the pound and left a message about my dog.

Sometime after that, the good Samaritan called the pound and had them go pick up my dog. She spent 2 days and nights at the pound before they called me saying they probably had my dog.

She was on a cold concrete floor laying on a balled up blanket, 2 feet from a large drafty doggy door. The informed me she hadn't eaten or drank for 2 days, the entire time she was there.

I thought she was going to die Monday, the day we got her back, even though she started drinking; but today she started eating again, and she is walking around more, feeling a lot better I think!

Hopefully the worst is behind her!

That is a pic of her from yesterday.

Minerva Monster

Guess what? Just 4 miles from these incidents,and a few years after; I had an encounter with a thrashing animal, in a cornfield.
A friend and I had an animal cornered in this cornfield, and every time I
advanced, it would thrash corn stalks like it meant business! If I stopped advancing, moved laterally or away from the animal, it did nothing; only when I
moved toward it, did it thrash.
I tried to get a visual on the animal, but I saw nothing; which made it
difficult to trust my reactions to an attack that I was sure to happen
if I got too close.
At the closest, I was 30 feet from it; I couldn't see it, and advancing
closer just didn't feel like the smart idea with bird-shot in my 12ga.
I've hunted and camped there for years; that is the only time I had a strange episode there.

Cool!
