Men Will Be.....Boys

I came home the other day to find this scene in front of the farmhouse.

Secret Agent Man and The Deerslayer tossing up empty shotgun shells and shooting them. 


Even the big boy....

had to get in on the act. 

When asked if he hit all of his targets, Secret Agent Man replied that no he didn't, but only because The Deerslayer didn't know how to throw them up in the air the right way.  

'Nuff said....

  1. Um, why is only the shooter wearing ear protection? Isn't eh one tossing stuff in the air just three feet away, and isn't it loud there, too? (This from a non-shooter . . . )

  3. Probably works better than handing your brother a clay pigeon, telling him to hold it up as high as he can and to RUN when you holler "Pull". I only have 2 brothers and it only works once per brother so.........

  6. Hmmm...around here it's not bullets but arrows that are shot at a fake deer and a foam block. And occasionally at the neighbor's chicken-chasing dog....
