    Wow.....great shot of that big boy! I can only believe you have quite the lens on your camera, or where you actually that close?

    Cool! Nothing like calling in big bulls that close!

    When I first read your post it actually made me remember a time we were out shooting clay pigeons. My friend had an old 35mm Pentax Spotmatic (that I still have) and wanted to see if he could get a clay bird exploding. I shot, and he clicked, and was excited saying "I think I got it!" He didn't get the bird exploding, but did, in fact get it right before it did. In the pic you can see me holding up the shotgun, the smoke, then the wad, and actually see the blurry string off BBs before they opened up, in a direct line to the clay pigeon still intact in the air. He always took Kodachrome slides back then and had the pic blown up to 8x10. Still have it.

    Wow..I'd love to see that. Could you take a pic of the pic and post it?
