Guelph Lakes

  1. We had a good time last weekend up at Guelph lakes, camping ... It is great to have some good shooting so close to where we were staying.. 2 minutes drive and we are there! Not a bad variety considering it is so late in the nesting season, and it really felt good to be out shooting again.

    Thanks to Karl and Marieanna Egressy for the fun and good shooting!

    here are a few
