If he's doing what I think he's doing then he gives Asians a bad name.

There's got to be a violation of hunting regs when someone takes "shots of opportunity" while at the range.

I don't understand, Maybe you linked us to a different video? I didn't see any animals at the range at all.

Ditto. Where are the animals?

And I don't think that shooting a dove if it passes by a trap range is illegal, as long as your gun is legal (3 shots or less, in many states), and you have a hunting license. That assumes you pick up the dove and take it home, same as if you were hunting. Nothing illegal about taking some meat home, in season.

Upland bird hunting generally involves "shots of opportunity." If you find a good way to stalk doves, let me know.:D

What's wrong in that video? Shooting slugs at the range? So?

At one of the ranges I shoot at there is no hunting allowed. It is clearly posted. If it is season and one gets shot and it could be clearly proven that it wasn't an accident, it wouldn't necessarily be a hunting reg violation, but rather violation of range rules. Although I could see someone trying to make a case for it.

They also have different ranges for shotguns. One is dedicated to birdshot only and slugs only on the rifle range. But that would once again be a violation of range rules.

Scooter ... Hmmmm, if you are on property that doesn't belong to you and it is posted "no hunting" and you hunt, in season or not, I think that it wouldn't be too tough in most states to make the case that you were in violation ;)

Now, not posted is a whole different deal ...

I think he might think because the speaker asked if he was using slugs he thought he was shooting at a deer or what not.

IF thats the case, some rife ranges dont allow birdshot i guess.

my understanding he was shooting slugs at a designated rifle range. and the RO was just making sure it was slugs and not shot

saands - I just reread my post and I see where I typed "wrong"...

Yes - it would be poaching - BUT wouldn't the range have to prove that you intentionally took the game? (that's where i messed up the original post) I know it doesn't happen often, but I have seen birds fly onto the trap range... (I know - Know your target)
