Practicing marksmanship in Valencia Co, NM prior to hunting season.

Shooter is 73.

Most clay birds hit. Stopped when 6 birds hit in a row.
Plastic tosser is temperature sensitive. Below about 70o F attempting to toss a bird nearly rips arm out of shoulder socket ... and bird does not leave tosser.

Albuquerque has the highest rate of skin cancer in nation. Therefore the dermotologist prescription hat designed by US military likely with millions of dollars of taxpayer money.
On way to Walk-In Hunting Areas Saturday November 13, 2010.

No pheasant found in.

Engine powered by natural gas pumps water to irrigation pivots, one of which is seen in background.

Never have we seen this engine idle.

The pumps are powered by electric motors. Electricity is from the grid.

Why solar power for the monitoring equipment?

Not sure since grid electricity is available. Maybe trying to create the appearance of 'going green?'

Note solar panels and transmitting antennas.

Maybe solar panel sales shill scam?

Large-scale solar generation of electricity is an area of interest.

Well monitor inside huts.

Enlarged photo of another microcontoller powered meter.

ABB 6413 Differential XFC.

Lunch Saturday November 124, 2010.

Nine hunters ranging between 36 to 73 years of age.

Youngest hunter talking to local sunday Sunday November 14 about salt water disposal.

We didn't go pheasant hunting with insurance adjusters in 2011.

Local explained that

is removing salt water so natural gas can be extracted.

Trucks remove salt water from tank.

Salt water is injected into the ground at a different location, local reported.

Local reported that natural gas is sold in the St Louis region.

Solar generation of electricity apparently works for well monitoring?

Next time we should bring a CEN-TECH 90899 digital multimeter to try to figure out what is going here? Albert Gore willing, of course.

Collected ornithological specimen examined at lunch Sunday November 14, 2010.

BP is in Kansas, in addition to the Gulf of Mexico.

Note pump powered by propane as opposed to electricity.

Propane-fueled engine.

Younger hunters departed at noon on Sunday November 14, 2010 leaving one senior [>65] and three super-seniors [>70].

No birds.

Dinner Sunday evening produced some fun comments.

Youngest senior commented, "Opinions are like a...holes. Everyone has one."
1 the media
2 global warming
3 corrupt government
4 Iran

We didn't go pheasant hunting in Kansas in 2011.

High lonesome wind farm essential non-gas-wasting field trip Saturday November 12, 2011.

Abandoned, but not removed, oil well.

Note helicorder in used to monitor above well.

Three old hunters depart from above abandoned oil well.

They arrived with no birds.

Senior [>60] photographs the three super-senior [>70] hunters.

Left hunter born 1938, middle 1937, right 1939.

1938, 1939 and photographer hunters are retired insurance adjusters.

Senior, not super-senior, photographer told 1937 super-senior he should not worry about the US
only producing 7% of the uranium it consumes

We're trying to figure out what he meant.

Photographer is graduate of the University of Colorado in the 1960s.

Middle hunter took higher algebra at CU from professor Aboulghassem Zirakzadeh in the summer of 1958.

Our interest in asking Iran question.
