Awesome!!!

"One thing that's very important to me is respect for the animal. I won't ever set a gun, or a pack, or any object on a dead animal. I won't ever straddle them, or sit on them. They deserve better than that. I don't enjoy killing them. The more I do it, the more I realize that its so instinctual. I run on auto pilot, hunting my butt off, strategizing, and making moves, and only after the trigger is pulled, and the animal is down, do I come down from the hunt and feel some remorse. I never regret killing an animal, it's all part of the cycle, and I will always be a part of it, but I have an immense amount of respect for the life I've taken, and ensure that it's not wasted."

That paragraph right there sums up my thoughts 100%.
Congrats and thanks for sharing.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading your story.  I couldn't agree more with the statement you made about harvesting an animal and the feelings and respect that goes along with that.  Thanks for sharing.

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I know I would be the same way with a quality tag if I ever draw one. I don't have the brand new family excuse but I'm glad there's someone else who goes "oh, there's a bull" and takes it lol. Congrats on a great hunt and a great animal!
