Did anyone else notice how hazy it was all day? The buffalo sure looked out of focus 750 meters away, but then, the whole day was kind of that way.

Four shooters decided to try their hand at the buffalo match and Nolan Davis proved he had the touch managing four hits out of five shots with one on the black circle in the heart area. No one else could match his marksmanship so he took home the buffalo trophy.

That explains the deer-in-the-headlights look when told he got a trophy, even if only for a month. Bill Sumpter figured he would be hard to live with on the ride home with the trophy and big head and all.

I’m afraid the Buffalo Match may suffer some until the days lengthen again. We were pretty hard pressed to get everything in and the days will only get shorter over the next month or so.

Time permitting, we’ll see if someone else has shooting skills sharp enough to wrest the trophy from Nolan in December.
