Fall is here.
Been shooting a ridiculous amount of centerfire this summer. My rimfire's haven't been seeing much love. Yet a couple weeks ago there was a smell in the air. When fall comes, I can smell it. Every year. Sure enough, right behind that smell came the starlings. I cranked a few of them with my sako quad lilja 17HMR... but it just isn't... fair.
My 40X requires me to deploy my skillset a bit more. So fun.
Chased my zero around a bit on the top couple rows. Hadn't shot this thing for a while. Shot some tiny groups. :) The last row I stood up between each shot. Wind got me good on that last one.
My "fly" tree is 35yds away. Flies love it in the evenings. The last place they can get sun.
I saw a grasshopper on my tree. He's that little bump left of crosshairs.
He was climbing without a permit. Clearly punishable by death. Death to the face.
Shot a bunch of flies.
