I went for an afternoon ride up on the Dome on thursday and scared up an elk on the first part of Motown trail. On the last half of the trail, a little before I got to my truck, I heard "zziing Bang!". Man, I hit the dirt flat on my belly yelling "G*damm%t hold your da##m fire. I ain't a @%*%* elk!." After a couple of minutes of silence I got up and picked up my bike. I heard no more shots or any other noise, so I jumped on my bike and hustled the quarter mile or so to the end of the trail and my truck. I imagine some hunter was sitting there saying "Oh sh*t!" I am just glad the guy was a lousy shot. Oh yeah, I was wearing a bright red road bike jersey. I am aware that it is hunting season. Maybe I should get a bell or something.
Anyway, If any of you folks are out in the woods, be aware.
