Love it!

Thatís what got me hooked. Had a 6x6 responding to my cow calls last year and got within 50 of him. Been daydreaming of that since this time last year.

Thank God the East side is open again, gonna be a busy weekend!

Congratulations, great photo and bull.
Thank you, I wish I could post the video, but the file is too large. The bull bugled twice at 30 yards, what a time.

Thanks! Hopefully one day I will have this experience with tag in hand. Catch and release for now.

Boy I would sure like to try that on that nice bull. If you tell me where he is I promise I will not take a weapon and just call him for fun. :lol4:

pretty spot on. I put him at 287. Pretty bull, he just isn't very long in the main beams. Probably not overly wide either.

:chuckle: It's like this barber I used to go to. He put up a sign in his shop one day. It said "free haircuts tomorrow. So I went in the next day and wouldn't you know it- the sign was still there!  :bash:

Awesome video  8)

I agree with Karl.  Upper 280s to 290ish.  He sure gave you enough opportunity to put an arrow through him... now all you need is the tag.   ;)

nevermind the 6x6 part, any of that.  You bugled in a bull.  Thats an accomplishment.  The internet blogs and hunti g forums would have you think its not much, but it is.  Youre on the right track.  Dont undersell your achievment
