That wasn't as many f-bombs as I was expecting. I'd be on the phone with the warden. It's crazy that the shots got close enough for the camera to pick up the sound of them whizzin by.

Which adds to my list of "reasons why not to fish Calaveras and Braunig"

On Google Maps, there's Nimrod Gun and Rifle Club on the west side of the lake. However, there should be a berm there to catch "most" bullets, plus there's a road behind it. Be careful out there and don't hesitate to call the game warden. Someone else may not be as lucky.

On a more positive note, I wasn't aware that they stocked these freshwater lakes with redfish. I'll have to look further into that.

since you heard the bullets coming over your head, but didn't hear the shots
they had to be coming from the Nimrod Gun range
whoever was shooting was shooting over the berms on purpose
you still need to call the warden and the sheriff's departments and report it
it makes them aware when it happened, and where you were on the lake
if they get more reports they'll shut down the gun range

if you think about it, that gun range should NOT still be open
if you had bullets zipping over your head, across the lake on the west shoreline
then those same bullets could hit vehicles going up & down I-37
remember that a simple .22LR bullet can travel 1-mile
it says so on the box

looking at where you were in your kayak, from where you were parked
those shots weren't random from the Nimrod Gun Club
you were too far south of the line of the range for the shots to be random
someone was intentionally shooting at/over you to scare you off

Actually, my childhood use of the word nimrod - idiot - is correct, but it also means hunter. I looked up the definition of nimrod after posting this.

i was way on the other side of the lake closer where the gun range is at.. yes i paddled over there and have always heard shot being fired but never heard the rounds zip by like that.. i made a report but was told that even with the video not enough evidence to do anything..

I can't believe the officer told you that. You are not pressing charges just advising him of the incident. It is the officers duty to notify the range owner that there may be a problem.
