And here's a little off topic but it's a side trip Balota and I took that weekend. There was a 'new guy' who came to shoot with us Saturday. His name is Nate and he has actually signed up here as Speedynate but he hasn't posted. He's a kind of quite guy. He made the mistake of telling me he has a dairy farm and, of course, I want to go see the operation. Nate ever so nicely accommodated us. I put on my rubber crocs and Balota and I went out there on a rainy Sunday.

The cows come in in groups of twelve on each side, if I remember right. Then they are hooked up to the milking machine. They stand peacefully and quietly while being milked.

After they are milked they are let out into a pen while new cows are allowed to file into the milking area. These girls are held in this pen until they are let out into a grain feeding area. After they eat their allotment of grain, they are let out into a grazing pasture. Nate has an awesome system of rotating grazing areas so that there is always an abundance of good grass for these girls to graze on every day.

The girls watched us as intently as we watched them. LOL

Here's some of the calves in their pens. They were absolutely adorable.

The next day Balota and I returned to Nate's dairy operation and we each bought a half gallon of raw cow's milk to take home. So creamy and delicious.

Okay, back to the Shoot and Hoot. This is all of us at Club 60 for the Saturday night dinner.

Geobob, Bobski and Balota. Geobob was great dinner company. A very interesting and very friendly man. And a perpetual smile.

3rd FTF Shotgun Shoot & Hoot, Vanzant, Mo. APR 12-13, 2014 - Missouri Gun Forum

This young lady shot skeet and trap like she'd been doing it for years. She was a great shot and we all had fun watching her shoot. She had a WONDERFUL time. She was in the process of kicking my butt at chess in the Clubhouse when we had to leave for dinner. I think she had me in check in about 5 moves. That's her Dad on the left. I'm sorry, I am so bad at names.

3rd FTF Shotgun Shoot & Hoot, Vanzant, Mo. APR 12-13, 2014 - Missouri Gun Forum

Here's that young lady's Mom who won the trophy. To be honest, she had the lowest score but to win the trophy, Bobski shoots with the shooter who has the highest score. If the highest scorer wins the shoot off, he/she gets the trophy. If Bobski wins the shoot off, the trophy goes to the lowest scorer. This goes to prove I did NOT have the lowest score. I think I was third from last.

Balota shooting international where you start with the shotgun at your hip and you don't shoulder the shotgun until the clay flies.

Did I say something wrong? I don't understand what you are saying.

Oh, okay. Sometimes we had our backs to the house that was letting clays fly and sometimes we were directly facing the house that was letting clays fly. I guessed we had our backs to the house that was letting the clays fly. My error.

Good thing you didn't know how many picks I was shooting. That would mean you had your back to the shooters and was facing me, which would not be a good thing.
