Default Finally Got a Place to Shoot

IMG951218.jpg

Our regular range was shut down after the state of Illinois (Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources) filed a "restraining order" against them for errant rounds supposedly impacting park property and for lack of supervision and safety regulations. Complete crap. This range is one of the most safety orientated and regulated ranges I've ever been to. I actually saw a guy fire a round accidentally over the firing line...even though it still hit the berm, they ejected him from the range and banned him permanently. They have no tolerance for ignorance or non-compliance with the rules.

Anyway....found a farmer near by, by one of my buddy's parent's house who said, "hell yeah, go out there and have a ball."

Fuck you Illinois. This state is absurd with it's anti-gun agenda.

My husband just got back home after two days of shooting sage rats in a farmer's pastureland.

It's not, really. I wouldn't like it either. Even my husband is very selective. He doesn't hunt any predators - no coyotes or other predators. The sage rats are a nuisance to the farmers, damaging fields and crops. The only other things he hunts, he eats.

If we didn't take an active stance towards the coyotes around here, there wouldn't be any deer, or other "eatables", and they'd start in on the livestock, checks and balances. We have also been inundated with 'coydogs', which is what happens when there's so many coyotes that they start breeding with domestic dogs.

I mean no offense, just a warning, we didn't used to shoot predictors either, so maybe he should check into that a bit, I have no idea what your coyote population is like, whether it's growing, or neutral.

With us, it seemed to happen over night, one day it was like "Hey, there's a coyote" to the next being like "Hey, there's 2 packs of coyotes and a pack of coydogs", lol.

Coyotes are everywhere in this state. Lots of people shoot them on sight or actually hunt them. As far as the farmers, it depends on what they're farming. If they're raising livestock, coyotes are bad. If they're raising crops, coyotes are good because they eat the little critters that damage crops. For example, the farmer who let my husband shoot the sage rats had a rule: no coyote shooting. Coyotes and deer co-exist in balance here, like it's always been. I can understand killing them if/when they kill pets or livestock, but not for sport.

Haha, I remember you once did a yoursay video, and you could hear the coyotes singing in the background ...

That's the nice thing of having your own property, I've never in my life had to go look for some place to shoot, in fact, this is the first house that I didn't or couldn't just shoot off the back porch.....at least I can still piss off it, lol.

Live in Illinois too.This state sucks.

That's cool of your friends parents to let you shoot there.My Dad's best friend used to live on an old farm house on the outskirts and that's where everybody used to shoot at.

Do you think you will be messed with by the law if you shoot there regularly?
