Hunting: Becoming a Real Straight Shooter

Hunting

By Colorado Parks and Wildlife

"Do you know how to shoot straight?"

While some people might take offense at such a question, it is one that big game hunters need to ask themselves every year. Shooting an animal with a high-powered rifle, no matter the distance, is not a natural skill. Hunters must know the capabilities of their rifles, the intricacies of their scopes, the characteristics of their ammunition, the distance of their targets and their own competence for setting up for a fast shot at an animal.

"Jason Bourne" gets off on the wrong foot by having a lame title. I guess the idea was to recover from the flop that was "The Bourne Legacy" by promising viewers that Jason Bourne would actually be involved in this one. But what it's unofficially promising to do is break from the hot streak of the first three "Bourne" movies. Fans of the franchise expect the movies to be titled "The Bourne (something vaguely exciting)" Who cares if people like to make fun of these titles ("The Bourne Colonoscopy"), they're essential to the way people identify the franchise.

Registration for Pedal the Plains Closes August 28

Dubbed by Gov. John Hickenlooper as a "ride for the rest of us", the 2016 Pedal the Plains bike ride will bring cyclists young and old through the gently rolling byways of the historic Eastern Plains communities of Ordway, Fowler, and La Junta.

A collaboration between the State of Colorado and The Denver Post, this one-of-a-kind cycling event highlights the importance of water, economic development, and the agricultural industry in Colorado.

This year's event runs September 16th-18th.
