Can't wait to follow along. My best friend who was like a brother to me was killed suddenly about two months ago and I immediately entered my fat butt into the triathlon he was training for when he died. The motivation response was unexpected for me. I can relate to your experience about tragedy working itself in redemptive ways in your own life. I can't wait to read more about your hunt!

So three weeks ago, I found a bachelor group of 8 bulls.  Several I believe may make the cut come game day.  Sorry the pics suck.  I forgot my phone scope, so I was free handing it and the bulls were several miles away.  Sun glate was pretty bad as well.

One bull in particular stood out.  He kept his distance a bit from the rest of the group, but his size was very noticeable.  Huge mass and very respectable fronts.  Tops were still balled up, so I know he had lots more growing to do.  As conservative as I can be, I put him at 304".  If he adds 25-30", which I think he will, he should finish out at or above the magic 350" mark! 

I've tried very hard to not hit the same piece of dirt twice, as I want to see as much of the trail systems, and ridges as I can, but I will be back on this bull again soon.

Keep at the work and scouting. When its hard, hold onto those memories. You'll do the hunt right. You have the heart for it.

So since that darn tree fell on my house, my conditioning has sucked this week.  To make up for it, Sagewalker (trevor) and I hit the stadium for a pick me up suck fest!  With busy wives, and dad duties for the day, we loaded up packs, kids, and dog and got after it! 

All went well till we were loading up to leave and kid on a bike went riding by on the main road a few hundred yards away.  Lucy couldn't stand it and had to go say hello :bash:  As fast as she could run, off she went!  Long story short, she got rolled by a Ford Explorer!  Somehow she came out of it with only a broken leg.

HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to Trevor for having my back and wrangling kids and dog with me, not only when it happened, but also at the vet clinic!  Couldn't have done it without you buddy :tup:

Surgery, pins, and a few grand later, she will be all right.  I've had to put down two dogs in the last two years, and I'll be darned if it was gonna be three.
