    Luckily for my little visitor the other morning there wasn't much flying. I happened to notice this tiny face looking up at me from a most precarious hiding place! You never know what you might see from the blind:l

    All the long-range duck killers are using frogs these days. Deadly out to 100. Nice spot!

    It's amazing the frog got in there in the first place, then (assuming he entered from the barrel open end) turned himself around to be facing outward. Dang frog put himself at risk of being shot in the butt.

    As much as i love the cute pic, I'm virtually positive that picture wasn't "posed"...right?

    Glad you spotted it... It could have gone two ways had you not seen it, and taken an opportunity to shoot...

    1. Fired and never known the little guy was in there.
    2. Fired and wondered WTH after your barrel exploded...
    Moral of the story... Always check for frogs in the barrel before firing???
