Turkey season is over, loooong way till October deer and fall turkeys, weather is warming up so it must mean one thing. Pond turtle season is here!!!!! Already got a couple with the 22-250 and this weekend is the first go 'round with a .45. Also the Walther P22 will done it red dot scope and give 'em a whirl. But the most fun is going down to the pond in the golf/offroad cart with a big ole ice tea, shooting sticks and the 10/22 for a long afternoon of pond frisbee sniping.
I have a friends pond that we have a picnic table set up on the pond dam as a bench rest. I'm betting there is over a ton of bullets in the bottom. ;D We like to see how many times we can flip them in the air with the big bore handguns. ;D
The perfect shot around here is if you can hit 'em in the neck and make their head fly up in the air. I'm sending my 10/22 trigger group in for a smooothin out job so I'll be with out for a couple of weeks. But when it get's back it ought to be fun!!!
Anyone got any ponds near OKC? I want to introduce the boy to the joys of turtle and snake shooting. Thats how I got good with a pistol. Shooting those little moving turtle heads. We had 2 ponds until dad sold off all his land to a developer.
Can you get him down in some of the backwaters on the cimmaron south of OKC? I haven't been in that area much but my son lived there for awhile and used to ride his dirt bike down there a lot. Might be some good gar shooting in the river too ;D ;D
He would take his dirt bike, and ride down the highway easment to the river. He said he went under the river bridge on meredian, and it was like a small city of people living in cardboard boxes, and tarps, but I'm betting you know all about that. Said he didn't stick around long.
