Jackass on the Trail!

I love animals, birds and all of nature! I would have loved to see a Jackass on the trail, had it only had four instead of two legs.

Yes, I did see a Jackass with two legs on the trail today :(

This one was walking around with either a BB Gun or a rifle (I could not tell which one it was). I have seen mostly nice folks on the Campion. So, I was dumbfounded when I saw this guy walking around with what appeared to be a gun.

I wasn't sure he was not headed over to the Shooting Range in South Irving. So, I decided I will just ride around a bit and then come and check on what this guy was up to.

Well, I wasn't suspicious for no reason! This guy was going around and shooting at little birdies and critters. I don't know if he killed any/many. But, what an ass :(

I did my share as a good citizen. The moron had left the area by the time the authorities showed up. I apologized to them for having wasted their precious time. These officers were very nice and told me, "That's what we are here for. Don't worry about it."

Here is to my possibly fallen friends!

I am sorry I couldn't be there for you guys!!

Peace to all :)


  1. Jackass is a good description for someone like that. Thanks for trying.

  2. Astouding! Scary stuff. Glad you took the time to notify the authorities, maybe they can stay on the lookout for this guy.

    A few times I have ridden past people doing target practice, and it always makes me nervous. Or hunters ... they also make me nervous.

  3. Michael,
    Scary is right! No shortage of ignorance :(

    I saw a guy target practicing with a handgun in his front yard, when I went on a group ride last year. That scared the life out of me. Coincidentally, earlier that same day, a biker (motorcyclist) was found dead, with a bullet in his back (I think back but not sure), in that same town!

    Peace :)
