Fun. It says coyotes but at one point in the video it seems he's shooting hyenas instead.

Two guys shooting. At several points they take simultaneous shots. Very cool. They're patient and don't rush things by attempting to take moving targets, even when those shots would be relatively easy. I suspect those carcasses the coyotes were ripping into were stock they'd run down previously. The guys knew they'd be back for another easy meal.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Try at this time stamp. Those don't look like coyotes to me. They're moving very strangely.

But yes, I would genocide coyotes if I could (nearly impossible).

Spinning off in a new interesting direction. I just submitted for approval a new podcast for my industry. Interesting learning about how it all gets put together and an extensive list of people to talk to for content. I could learn a lot over the next year through this.

Aimbot? Would that be some kind of computer assisted aiming? I doubt that it would be legal to have actual complete bots engaged in such an activity. Although we are in a bit of the wild, wild west when it comes to certain aspects of artificial intelligence.

By the way, I recall some USA case law that asserts that so called spring guns are illegal because they are not sufficiently discriminating. A spring gun is a kind of gun that people used to set up in their homes and perhaps in other areas that would (or could) kill or injure unauthorized entrants (such as burglars).

As I recall, the rationale behind such illegality was that a person has the right to exercise lethal force to protect himself or another person from possible deadly force, but such person did not have the right to protect property by the use of lethal force. So, the spring gun was illegal, especially if there was no person present who was being protected and merely property.

One of the concepts about setting up artificial intelligence to shoot Coyotes, wolves, hyenas, or whatever those are, would be that it is just a means to protect property (cows in this case), and the life that is being killed is not human.. predatory animals, but the problem could be if such artificial intelligence, if it were used in these kinds of cases, were to mistakenly kill a human.

Even if it is a joke, on a personal level, I remain interested in the evolution artificial intelligence to kill, whether that is to kill animals or otherwise. There is a lot of scary technology that is being researched and even deployed in some cases with drone technology.

I think it’s a demo video from the makers of the scope, hence both coyotes and hyenas. Pretty cool. I have night vision for foxes and rats, but that’s a whole new level.

At 6:05 he nails one and it starts spinning around shitting itself.

We spread democracy with crazy thermal stuff like that in the Navy. The difference us it cost millions of dollars back in those days.

I like when that kinda stuff gets cheap and average Joe can use it on the hyenas, or whatever.

A ship I was on had some type of camera installed at the waterline that was 30 megapixels. we were like "whoa, that's a lot of megapixels" and some guy such as Larry Kodak himself had to come and set it up. I'm making up Larry Kodak, but you get the point.

Now, you get a thirty megapixel camera at Wal-Mart for cheap.

Didnt know Gavin started his own youtube channel, but had this recommended to me today. Glad he can do his own thing parting from Rebel TV now. Hes a hilarious duded imo

I'm not a resident of the province that I'm working in so can't legally do it, but laws are made to be broken so if I have some time off and make it out to my boss's farm, I'll see if there's any critters around to shoot, all I've seen are rabbits so far though.

Quote:Shaming of sexual assault survivor sparked X-Men, Axemen brawl, says player

Quote:A player and his coach say the shaming of a sexual assault survivor is what sparked an intense brawl between the two Nova Scotia university men's hockey teams during a game in Wolfville, N.S., on Saturday, but the other team disputes this.
Sam Studnicka, a player with St. Francis Xavier University X-Men, and his coach, Brad Peddle, on Monday released statements about the fight with Axemen players from Acadia University.
Studnicka said a comment was made to him by a member of the Axemen during the third period of the game. He said he told Peddle, who addressed it with the on-ice officials and the head coach of Acadia.
Studnicka said he was "completely shocked" when minutes later the opposing player was sent to take a faceoff with him.
The brawl started soon after.
​Studnicka did not identify the opposing player or the sexual assault survivor, or specify what was said.

It's sad that sports has become saturated by this SJW nonsense. There are few places for men to go anymore without having to put up with this crap. At least the video of this brawl is entertaining.

Too many smokes on the beach. Take care of your butts people, don't litter.

I'd like to throw a truckload of tobacco down one of those volcanoes just to annoy these people with second hand smoke.

I’ve been to a couple of games between those teams, they’re both in fun small uni towns in rural Nova Scotia. I used to go party and chase pussy in them with buddies back in the early to mid 2000s, those were fun times.

I'm not even gonna google it, but I'm going to guess that in either California, Seattle, or Oregon, there is a similar bill being proposed that makes the age 90 or something. We like to out-liberal those people on certain issues.

Colorado runner who killed mountain lion suffocated him in 'fight for survival'

Quote:A mountain trail in northern Colorado will remain closed for the rest of the week after a mountain lion attacked an unarmed trail runner, who killed the animal with his bare hands, authorities said Tuesday.

The runner, who hasn't been identified, was attacked on the West Ridge Trail at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space near Fort Collins on Monday, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife agency said.

The state wildlife department said in a statement Tuesday that it had confirmed the man's account "that he was able to suffocate the animal while defending himself from the attack." It said the man was able to make his way to a nearby hospital, where he was being treated for serious but non-life-threatening puncture wounds to his arms, legs and back.

The man "didn't have any weapons," Ty Petersburg, area wildlife manager for the wildlife agency, told NBC affiliate KUSA of Denver.

"He was really creative," Petersburg said. "He used his hands, feet — things that were around him — and really it was just a fight for survival."


Authorities described the animal only as a mountain lion that was less than a year old, saying they couldn't determine its weight or precise age because other animals had started to eat it by the time they found its body near some of the man's possessions.

The cat tested negative for rabies, "which is very welcome news," the wildlife agency said.

Petersburg said the man followed the state guidelines when the cat confronted him: He put his hands in the air, made a lot of noise and stood his ground.

But "probably what happened here is that the lion had an instinct triggered," Petersburg told KUSA. "It wasn't so much tracking a human or keying in on a human. It just had an instinct triggered like it would if you were to roll a ball of yarn across the ground for a cat."


The state wildlife department and Larimer County rangers initially reopened the trail area on Monday night. But they again closed all trails at the open space on Tuesday after rangers spotted more mountain lion activity in the area, the state agency said. The closing will be reassessed on Friday, it said.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis joked in a statement: "Don't mess with Colorado trail runners."

"A runner near Fort Collins killed an attacking mountain lion with his bare hands," Polis said Tuesday. "Don't try this yourself on purpose, as it is likely to end poorly for you."

Petersburg said it was the most incredible story he'd been a part of in 17 years with the department.

"To be able to see a man face adversity like that and come out on the other side is pretty amazing," he said.


State officials reiterated on Tuesday that mountain lion attacks on people are extremely rare. The state's last attack was reported in June 2016, when a 5-year-old boy was seriously injured outside his home in Pitkin County, west of Denver. The boy survived.

"He was really creative," Petersburg said. "He used his hands, feet — things that were around him — and really it was just a fight for survival."


Authorities described the animal only as a mountain lion that was less than a year old, saying they couldn't determine its weight or precise age because other animals had started to eat it by the time they found its body near some of the man's possessions.

The cat tested negative for rabies, "which is very welcome news," the wildlife agency said.

Petersburg said the man followed the state guidelines when the cat confronted him: He put his hands in the air, made a lot of noise and stood his ground.

But "probably what happened here is that the lion had an instinct triggered," Petersburg told KUSA. "It wasn't so much tracking a human or keying in on a human. It just had an instinct triggered like it would if you were to roll a ball of yarn across the ground for a cat."


The state wildlife department and Larimer County rangers initially reopened the trail area on Monday night. But they again closed all trails at the open space on Tuesday after rangers spotted more mountain lion activity in the area, the state agency said. The closing will be reassessed on Friday, it said.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis joked in a statement: "Don't mess with Colorado trail runners."

"A runner near Fort Collins killed an attacking mountain lion with his bare hands," Polis said Tuesday. "Don't try this yourself on purpose, as it is likely to end poorly for you."

Petersburg said it was the most incredible story he'd been a part of in 17 years with the department.

"To be able to see a man face adversity like that and come out on the other side is pretty amazing," he said.


State officials reiterated on Tuesday that mountain lion attacks on people are extremely rare. The state's last attack was reported in June 2016, when a 5-year-old boy was seriously injured outside his home in Pitkin County, west of Denver. The boy survived.

I hope he was able to use this to pick up chicks and get laid. I think barehanded lion killing game might actually be better than high end zebra game.

I'm the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. I'm funky like a monkey. Sky's the limit and space is the place!
