Raining BBs

6 posts in this topic

Quick question here for the guys who shoot more than me.

When pass-shooting geese, ducks, whatever and you have shot raining down, have any of you observed damage caused by this? And how dangerous is it for someone to be hurt?

I've hunted a lot of years, and had plenty of my own shot raining around me. It's not a big deal to me. I have even rained it down on my parent's house and our vehicles because I duck hunt behind the house on their lake... I've never seen any damage, and I consider it to be like light hail.

[PoorWordUsage] happens sometimes. Besides apologizing, if someone were to get really angry over it, I'd like to have some sort of argument that it wouldn't damage anything or anyone.

So, yea, anyone here ever actually seen damage done to vehicles, property or people when shot has rained down? Besides tempers flaring?

thanks.

I guess if someone is looking up it could hit their eye(s). I think all waterfowl hunter have had "rain" from other hunters skybusting.

Yea, getting hit in the eye is all I could come up with for actually being hurt. Chances of that are extremely slim though for anyone not wearing glasses already.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
