Squirrel hunters at Boomershoot 2007

Today I received an email from a Boomershoot entrant requesting a couple of friends be put on the waiting list for Boomershoot 2007.

We get quite a few squirrel hunters at Boomershoot. The skills and equipment required for both sports are essentially identical. However, it appears these two squirrel hunters are a little unequipped for conventional squirrel hunting. Pistols are marginal at best (Rolf used hot .357 magnum loads from “entertainingly close” distances to get marginal results). And the rifle the other guy is shown carrying doesn’t have a scope. The closest targets are 375 yards away and without a scope it’s really tough to see the targets. Therefore I’m putting these guys AT the 375 yard line. It’ll be a once in a lifetime event for them. And no waiting list either.
