Cowboy Action Shooting

10 posts in this topic

My Dad is an avid "cowboy shooter" so I went to one of his shoots yesterday. I didn't realize how much I've been missing the past few years. For those that don't know, the participants must have a cowboy alias, and they must wear authentic clothes. It's a lot of fun to see everyone in their costumes and here them call each other by their cowboy names. Here's a few shots from the day. I'll excuse myself by saying that they were shot in noon sun and no shade except for the shade from the hats they were wearing.

#1 Beauford on the right, not sure of the left side cowboy

Nothin like shooting a smokey double barrel coachie with black powder. Man I love that smell.

Good stuff.

The second image says everything that needs to be said about the romance of the Old West. Minus the wedding ring and the Sturm-Ruger emblem, of course. gringrin

Really nice work!

It took a lot of man to wear a dress back in those days in Early America. I've known a few Scots who were tough enough to give the knee to any other guy who thought it was cool to try to capture an "upkilt" shot. gringrin

Thanks Everyone for the comments! At first it was a little frustrating because I was trying to capture the old west look and you could always notice the sunglasses and ear plugs. Finally, I just decided to capture it for what it was, a lot of fun. The second is hands down my favorite and I'll be entering that one in the county fair.

Thanks again for looking and commenting!

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
