When I pass, do not let my wife sell the guns for what I told her they cost.

high fence ranch bull from last year, probably from idaho. it was all over MM about 78 times and every other hunting site in the entire world.
just a matter of time i guess before it showed  up here.

Yep, it's High fence critter, which I have no problem with, as long as the killer is not passing it off as an animal off public ground.  There pics on another site of it eating out of what looks like a dish of oats...
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
If I ageed with you, then we'd both be wrong.
You are never to old to learn something stupid.

Sorry it has been around that much, But still that is an incredibly big animal even if it was on a high fence ranch, could you imagine the guys that might have seen it the years before and said hey lets let it live one more year, that would have been hard to do.
