  • Finally connected

    Its nothing spectacular but after putting in a lot of time and energy in to different hunts I finally connected. I was looking for a bull but didnt see one in 2 days of scouting and about 50 miles of driving.

    Shot her at about 250 yds. Rd hit the very bottom of the spine and took a sharp turn and hit the back hip. She dropped right where I shot her.

    Guess that was a good thing. I was all by myself and getting her loaded up was a real chore. I got my rig stuck not long after that as well and luckily some other hunters stopped and helped me out. I repaid the deed not 2 miles back down the trail when I ran it some guys whose frame snapped on their 6 wheeler. Funny how that stuff works out.

    Congrats. It doesn't take a monster bull to be a successful hunting trip. Glad you connected with one

      Definitely a purdy animal. I love cow meat. Big antlers are cool but cow makes for great eating. Topjob.

              It sure was a fantastic feeling. Lots of sore muscles today but that meat sure smells good. I dropped the bulk of it at the processor today. Letting the ribs and back strap hang a bit. Ribs are hitting the smoker and I've got some stuff planned for that back strap too!

                Congrats!

                I'm sure those straps will be tasty.
                I think about hunting when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day. And I think about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm doing it. ~credit to Carl Yastrzemski~

                  Success is Success. I haven't shot a cow yet but I would if I didn't always get stuck with these bull only hunts. Coming home with the prize is what counts.

                    what caused the frame to snap on the 6x6?

                      Cheap construction would be my guess. The "frame" was 1 in HOLLOW square tube. Not exactly quality construction. I suspect that over time the way the shock is mounted on those 6 wheel drive deals that the strain of bouncing up and down just wore that hollow walled square tube out.
