Looks like you're still having fun! The second cracker shot it my fav but I don't know what that is before it other than the bullet just before it hits. How slow was your shutter speed?

I'm gonna take a guess here.. on the cranker shot.. its a pellet gun, my guess is you have the pellet gun quite close to the cracker and its cracker dust from the air reaching the cracker before the pellet!

My guess is ...You hit the cracker to the right side correct? The flash of white I think is actually like a vapor trail. The air leading in front of the pellet is whooshing around the cracker changing direction and condensing for a split second. The way it looks also, your pellet gun may shoot a little high and to the left.

I may be incorrect at this but I gave it my best shot.

I'm not sure, I like the blast of air propellant from the pellet gun idea. It seams plausible. On a side note, I see you shot the same cracker twice. Nice job recycling smile

Light from the flash beaming through cracker holes?

Fun stuff at your house these days! My favorite is the ice cube - and I'm with Dietz on the cracker shot, air blowing dust/flour thru the cracker before the pellet hits.

Well the pellet gun was about 2' from the cracker, I would guess that DD might be on to something. smile And Yak not only do I re-shoot the cracker multiple times, I get a snack when I'm done shooting it. smile

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
