Legendary sniper Gunnery Sgt. Carlos N. Hathcock II was the first person to ever use a .50 caliber weapon in a sniping role. Utilizing a .50 caliber Browning HMG with an 8-power telescope sight, he set the record for the farthest confirmed kill by a sniper during the Vietnam War, at 2,250 meters.

This feat of field craft by Sgt. Hathcock established the viability of using .50-caliber ammunition as usable and effective for sniper special operations. Sgt. Hathcock?s record was broken only recently in Afghanistan by a Canadian sniper team. The Canadian snipers scored a chest shot at 2,430 meters using a .50 caliber McMillian bolt-action rifle, with a 16 power Leupold telescope sight.

Hi Tatonka-
Wasn't he also known as "White Feather"?

Oh, and Misty, if I would have burned it, I would have definitely scrounged some batteries to get THAT pic! I'm no wussy and always up for exposing self humility! Besides, I brought a fryer chicken just in case THAT happened. You know men and bbq's!

Uh cooking contest guys?   :unsure:  :nono: 

That wabbit looked a little old and maybe a buck so that didnt add much to the gamy flavor. The lack of pictures was a disappointment but the effort was appreciated. Ill give extra credit for the learning experience for the kids. You didnt accidentally kill any of those cows did ya? That would have been much better eatin by far.  :P   

I cut wabbits and squirrels into six pieces 4 legs back and ribs. Flour, brown, cover. Cook slow for a few hours. That would be out of the question over an open fire especially that late in the day. A bunny that size cooked with a stick stuck thru it would have been so tuff the dog wouldnt eat it. ( I did that with a squirrel once)  :D  The dog carried it out of the camp dropped it and came back.  :woot:

Thanks for the effort Rocky.   :thumbup:

Yep! I had to seriously watch my background since that land is "free grazed" by a big cattle company. That's why that grass looks like it was just mowed! But they were all down field from the shot I had to take, but luckily, there was a slightly raised area that served as a nice background in case I missed (but I never miss!)

Yes, lack of the finished product/s WAS dissappointing, albeit, it was very aesthetically pleasing, but still, it would have been nice to have the shots. Oh well, live an learn. As Trump would say..."You're Fired!"

I had a ball though with the effort though! My older one had to walk away when he saw the guts coming out but my younger one grabbed the camera and went to town, although I could hear "gurgling" sounds occasionally.

I gave them the camera with fresh batteries and 1 gig of memory and gave them carte blanche with picture taking, I should have made sure I had an extra set!

Like I said though, we had a lot of fun in the process.

What a great Sunday! 20 degrees Celsius - not a cloud on the sky, the spring has really settled in.



Let us begin with our famous family garlic secret recipe  :yes:
Take the garlic (the quantity varies greatly depending on how much you can take before your head explodes 8| how hot the garlic is, how much you like garlic etc) and smash it in tiny pieces, add salt, then begin to add a little bit of sunflower-oil and start mixing. Repeat until you add about 5 ounces of oil...   moose0024.gif





Add tomato juice (even better if you add the whole tomato, smashed - without the skin), dried basil (Ocimum basilicum), coconut and mix again.



Potatoes cut in half and wrapped in tin foil. Put them on the grill or under it - your choice :)





Added some turkey legs





Assault of the mushrooms :) - with wine inside them ;) while you're at it throw some wine on that turkey too







Three generations  :yes:



The end product - throw the garlic sauce on the mushrooms and enjoy!
Don't forget about the salad!



Thanks mistwalker for reminding me about this contest, we had a great time!
