Art is not an object.  It is the excitement inspired by the object.

Love the pictures of that purdy north snow! You guys probably get tired of it, but snow is few and far between for us down in North Carolina.

It was a great day - 10 degrees at the start around 10AM and by mid afternoon it had warmed to about 12 or 11. A few got a mite cold in their extremities, but most of us wayyyy overdressed and had to run open coats.

Taylor, you type funny. I would never do that -  ;D

It was -35 this morning in Northmn.  That kind of puts a damper on things like that, but its good to get out int he winter.  We have snow hanging from bracnches also.  Pretty but a PITA when you brush up against them.  Supposed to warm up again pretty quick.  Thats quite a group for a little get together.

Here's the fox target - 92 yards from the stake - a 'good' target, certainly not a big one, although everyone calls it a coyote - it's about 8" belly to back.
Telephoto shot, btw. We all clang it quite often with the smothbores althoguh it is easier with a rifle, even a double rifle ;D.

Taken from the stake.

Great pictures, thanks!

It's a bit to cold for me going out in those temps you guys mention, that's why I stay inside by the fire when it gets that cold.  That and the fear of my round ball freezing in mid-flight to the target... ;D

We can do that next time, if you want. Maybe this Sunday- supposed to warm up a bit - that would be nice.

They got stuck in the Sierra Nevada Mt's. in what is now known as the Donner Pass. Resorted to cannibalism to survive.

Well, there's a few 'fatted calves' there.
