7 days out of season and I happen upon
« on: January 09, 2017, 01:28:18 PM »
Never fails. A week out of season for me and I happen upon 35 head just hanging out. It was pretty cool though I had my 3 daughters with me and nothing is better than watching their eyes get wide and mouths drop open. As soon as we turned the corner and headed down the road they busted across the fence and up into the jack firs. Not in any real hurry though so it was cool to let the kids watch them wonder up in the timber.

Some animals WERE harmed in the making of this Hunter. They were also dragged through the dirt, butchered and tasted delicious fried with butter and bacon.

only a few spikes, I'm sure what is left of any bulls are still deep in the bush hiding.

They are probably the only ones in the woods that have the regs and seasons ingrained in their brains.

I don't think they read the refs, I think they write them  :bash:

albeit cool to see though love seeing wildlife weather it's season or not.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Im glad that you didn't hit them like I did. At least you and your family are safe, seeing them is a lot better.

Wowzers, glad to see you are ok.
