The night prior there was span class=”blsp-spelling-error” id=”SPELLING_ERROR_1″ style=”BACKGROUND-COLOR: rgb(255,255,0)”a huge /spanthunderstorm.

Well at span class=”blsp-spelling-corrected” id=”SPELLING_ERROR_3″the far/span end of the range there was some sort of bird. The Psycho somehow got it in his head that that there bird at span class=”blsp-spelling-error” id=”SPELLING_ERROR_4″ style=”BACKGROUND-COLOR: rgb(255,255,0)”the/span end of the range was public enemy #1. Basically a pest, menace and threat to society. So he first tells me to “Shoot It” then “Shoot It, Shoot It, Shoot It. ” divI patiently explain to him that in America one cannot just go and off some seemingly innocent bird. Furthermore some environmentalist would consider it a crime worse than outright murder. Then we would be locked up for life./divdivOnce I finished zeroing the rifle we started off for our first running loop. As we span class=”blsp-spelling-corrected” id=”SPELLING_ERROR_5″approached/span the said bird. It then became apparent that it was a huge Loon. This loon, when it saw us coming started hopping down the field in the direction we were running. Do not know if you have ever seen a loon hop, but a hopping Loon is one of the funniest sights that I’ve ever seen./divdivAs the field tapered into a trail the Loon turned around stood up on its haunches, spread its wings.
