When told the reason for daylight savings time the Old Indian said, “Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.”

So anyway, road runners can not out run the descent of a peregrine falcon.. I have seen them flush and take quail in mid flight.. Without googles, this raptor can reach speeds of over 200 mph nose diving.. Airborne, death from above.. Carnage in the wake;



I walked about 3/4 of a mile past that mangled roadrunner to make a stand.. Crossed a creek over a beaver dam.. Set-up on a hill above that water.. There, my sweaty BDU top stuck against my back as mosquitos bit thru the material;

I could faintly hear a rooster crowing in the distance from my over watch of the river bottom.. I let out one lone howl then silently took in my surroundings for several minutes.. I did a time check and realized I was off an hour for daylight savings.. Next, all I did was a few whimpers.. That was enough to get one coming in from the thick accretion along the river.. I remained silent as she zig-zagged her way towards me.. She had me all jacked up and shaking as I watched her through the scope.. I hit her low and she spun as she went down into the creek I crossed on my way in.. I heard her hit the water but did not see her come up the other side;

With weapon at the ready I peaked over the bank;



That shot definitely set her clock forward for daylight savings.. I drug her out of the creek, below a tree.. A final resting place for her to grow cold.. Looking up.. realize that within some of the coldest objects in our universe, often burns a warm core.-. The forming of a star and sometimes multiple stars..



Don't forget to set your clocks forward..

Mosquitoes!?!? Oh Lawd, I ain't ready for that yet. Way too early. Been missing your posts, but realize you have some other things going on in life right now too. Good to see you knocking some down again.

My rancher texted me yesterday afternoon, been seeing the same coyote several times. We tried for it Saturday morning, and I tried again yesterday evening. It is a smart one though. I gotta figure out a new plan for it. I may need to try the howl/whimpers thing. Or maybe no calling at all, just a LR ambush over the water hole with my 6.5 Creedmoor.

Mosquitoes have started here also. They haven't been to aggressive yet, just annoying. Pulled a tick off over the weekend. Time for some permethrin I guess. Nice job and entertaining story as always.

I thought you and your son shot that one last weekend;



Good to see you getting back out especially after your son's accident..

Prayers for progress in recovery..
