OH MY GOD! You've Killed Kenny!
« on: October 11, 2020, 11:45:22 PM »
Meet Kenny.
Was at a KD this weekend at Searsboro and this little guy followed us around.
We named him Kenny.
I think there were actually at least two of them, but we only ever saw one at a time.
It/they would follow us around and approach us.
One let me pet it a bit and Cort picked one up for a bit.
We decided that they were feeding on the crickets and grasshoppers we were kicking up as we walked.
For a bit, one stood no more than 10 feet in front of a couple of guys firing ARs and it did not even flinch.
Added some humor and fun to the event.

(hopefully the pic attachment works, it is not working in preview)

Pic worked like a charm.

It's always nice when our wild friends keep us company, provided they steer clear of downrange. It can be a real issue at Whittington Center and Laramie.

One of my favorite memories was a tarantula that hung out with us for the day at a shoot in Las Vegas.

I think every outdoor range in Virginia has its own groundhog.  You just arrange the targets so the impact zone is not on their corner of the berm.  They have no cares about gunfire.

Kenny is a survivor.  I think he decided to make friendly with us after he noticed the heads and feathers of a couple of his buddies laying on the ground.  I'm guessing a local hawk made quick work of them.

And they'll shoot the Iguanas in South Florida.

These guys were walking less than a foot from the firing line. They didn't even flinch when a .223 with a muzzle brake went off. On Sunday one of them reappeared as soon as we started shooting.
