    While practicing in my backyard, I watched this little guy hop around my backyard.
    The rabbit was about 20 yards away. The spinner in the foreground is at 10 yards.
    ​Shooting the LGU did not bother him at all as it was very quiet to shoot. I was shooting at the yellow field target at 45 yards.
    ​Little guy hopped away to my neighbor’s yard after a few minutes.

    Saw the little guy again this morning sitting next to the 40 yard target. He dashed back into the brush when I got within five feet of him.

    I had similar experience a few years back…

    Always cool to see the bunnies whether it’s hunting time or not.

    Very nice pic!
    ​I almost killed a squirrel while shooting at my 55 yard target. At 50x, your field of view is so small that you won’t see much of anything. I grazed a squirrel by its head midway to the 55 yard target when it crawled into my line of fire. The only thing I saw when I shot was a squirrel out of focus jump into my field of view and run away.

    I had the same thing happen to me last summer.

    Very nice pics!
    ​Awfully close to that squirrel target.
    ​Lead splatter can definitely ruin that rabbit’s day.

    Well, not a rabbit, but I was shooting metallic silhouettes, I hear my wife behind me say,

    “Dont shoot the chicken.”
    “What do you mean ‘dont shoot the chicken?’ It is a chicken silhouet- Oh, you mean the real chicken . . . right.”

    I remember seeing a highlight on ESPN of a pitcher throwing the ball and hit a bird flying thru in a MLB game. I wonder if it ever happened to a airgun target shooter?
