SHOT Show 3

File this under Sights You’ll Probably Never See at a Bird Festival.

a mechanized, talking dog

a “booth babe” named Christina who signs posters while wearing a corset and white leather chaps. She admits to developing a soft spot for rubber ducks after her boyfriend gave her a really cute one.

a vehicle parked inside the festival’s vendor area

a camouflage Harley-Davidson Sportster. I know some guys who'd like to get their hands on one of these.

a rubber duck and a grouse in the same tree

camouflage children’s attire in all variations and sizes, even onesies for the newborns

camo bedding

I really enjoyed my first peek into the shooting and hunting world. The day proved to be informative and entertaining. I don’t, however, mean to poke fun at that world by sharing these images, because I do respect the vast amount of money that hunters contribute to habitat conservation. Birders wouldn’t have access to as many locations if not for hunters' financial contributions.

Hmm. Bill didn't say ANYTHING about corsets and chaps at the SHOT show. Wonder what else I'm missing?
