Rodeo!!  :chuckle:

Yee hah!

I knew a guy who roped an 80#ish bear back in the mid eighties.  Said it was all fun and games until he jumped out of the tree.  "S*&T got real in a hurry once I hit the ground", he said.  Then he pulls out his pictures...no bear pics, just pictures of him in the hospital getting stitches.
He asked, Do you ever give a short simple answer?  I replied, "Nope."

Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

My great grandpa used a savage 99 300 savage made in 1922! 150 grain corelokts never failed him! But then again his biggest deer he ever shot was a 180lb mulie. But when he passed on, so did the rifles hunting career. It's a fun gun! But at almost $30 a box for federal powershok, I don't shoot it very often.

I love mine and reload for it.  Have been using 308 brass, resizing, trimming and tuning to my gun :tup:
