    I have been hitting the gophers hard for a few weeks and I am afraid I might have overdone it. 300-500 gophers/day has taken a toll on the pasture.

    This is my third day in a row with 6-8 guns a trip and we are fairly serious about shooting and hitting the gophers. There is a small creek that runs through the ranch and I wanted to see if there were fish in it.

    When the day warmed up, the gophers have a siesta and I took some night crawlers to the stream.

    At the end of the day, it was quite eventful...

    The beauty of being addicted to guns is that I like so many different kinds. I take some of the older stuff along and shoot them too... 676FBF57-965C-4955-BC08-1C1AA9E5AE7D.jpeg

    Great day all round!
    Classic Rifle and a classic lite trout outfit.
    Hard to beat that sort of a day.
    Thanks for posting.

    Headed back out tomorrow for another go at it. I have accounted for hundreds and hundreds of critters. This shows how handy the GMC is with the cartridge dispensing grill ahead of the windshield...

    Sounds and looks like a truly excellent day out. Please educate us Aussies; what are night crawlers?
