General Discussion / Bear attacks cyclist in Montana
« on: May 27, 2020, 08:44:10 AM »
https://www.foxnews.com/science/grizzly-bear-injures-bicyclist-near-big-sky-in-montana   :shocked:

A cyclist was attacked and critically injured by a grizzly bear near Big Sky in Montana on Monday.

A man in his 60s was mountain biking alone on a trail on private property in the Spanish Peaks Community near Big Sky, Montana, according to the Billings Gazette.

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks spokesperson Morgan Jacobsen confirmed that initial investigations revealed the mountain biker probably suprised the bear when he came around a sharp turn on the trail.

"It does not look like a predatory attack," Jacobsen told the Billings Gazette.

A grizzly bear is seen above in Glacier National Park, Montana, United States of America, North America.

The biker, who escaped the bear and got help from a passing motorist, was airlifted to a Billings hospital and is in critical but stable condition, according to Jacobsen.

Authorities closed the trail while the investigation continues.

Jacobsen encourages people who are hiking, biking or resting in bear territory to make sure they have bear spray, stay in groups and avoid areas with animal carcasses.

Photography / May P.O.M. Contest
« on: May 02, 2020, 11:48:39 AM »
This month the Theme is Birds. Any picture can be entered...
Rules:
1. Pictures can be shot anywhere, as long as they are shot by you.
2. ONE picture with a maximum length on the long side of the photo must be no more than 800 pixels.(If either side of your image is larger than 800 resolution it must be re-sized to comply.)
3. If you win one month, you are out the next.
4. Anyone can submit images including moderators.  This is because the winner will be chosen by the site on an anonymous poll at the end of the month.
5. Winners will have their picture put on the front page of the site.
6. No artistic creations are allowed.  In general, if you are taking something out of the photo it's ok but if you are adding something to an image or changing the original intent of your image and subject it isn't allowed.  For example, adding in more antler on a deer, cloning in more birds, or adding in rain/snow is no longer allowed. However, if you take the color out and make it black and white, clone out a barb wire fence that was distracting, or sharpen an image that is OK.  The intent of this contest is for natural captures only although other artistic creations can be posted in the photo section.  HDR is allowed.  This is a subjective area to judge and we will have to judge if you have gone too far in post process.

Photography / Re: I took some Elk Drone Video
« on: February 19, 2020, 06:48:05 PM »
They were about a half mile away and 400 ft up the hill.There were two 6x7's. The one in the tree's on the left was big. I would have followed them over to the next ridge but is was about 32 degrees and I was concerned about my battery. When I returned the Drone the Battery life was at 20%. I swapped batteries but the wind kicked up. I had to abort  :angry: My drone is a Mavic Pro with a 4K camera.

General Discussion / Washington: House to Vote on Magazine Ban Bill
« on: February 19, 2020, 07:11:56 AM »

https://www.nraila.org/articles/20200214/washington-house-to-vote-on-magazine-ban-bill?fbclid=IwAR2VvxERKUuZZeLT1QGyC1HbOclshudSWLWSrjfN9VN4icjxv-Yldv7blXc

Your NRA has learned that anti-gun legislators are attempting to hold a floor vote on House Bill 2240 to ban standard capacity magazines during the floor session this Sunday. It’s imperative you contact your state Representative today and urge them to oppose this egregious legislation!

Click Here to TAKE ACTION!!!  https://act.nraila.org/actions/campaigns/7910

House Bill 2240 bans the manufacture, possession, sale, transfer, etc. of magazines that hold more than fifteen rounds of ammunition. This bill is strongly supported by the Governor and the Attorney General. These so called “high capacity” magazines are in fact standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition. Those who own non-compliant magazines prior to the ban are only allowed to possess them on their own property and in other limited instances such as at licensed shooting ranges or while hunting. Restricted magazines have to be transported unloaded and locked separately from firearms and stored at home locked, making them unavailable for self-defense.

All bills must be voted out of their chamber of origin by February 19th at 5:00PM. Multiple gun bills are expected to receive votes in the next few days, so please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for additional updates.
