Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Micah is going to put together a video of the hunt that I hope to post later. As he was filming this bull he was hoping I would pass so there would be more video but also thought I would be crazy to pass this bull.

As soon as I saw him I thought this is it if I get a shot.

I got everything I wanted out of this hunt. I did it where I wanted, how I wanted with my buddies and yes they all bitched on the hike out of why did you not shoot the bull in the driveway?  :chuckle:

I would have loved for it to last longer but Im happy with how it went.

Awesome!

It would have been VERY hard for me to not pack the rifle.  Kudos to you for sticking with the bow and taking a tremendous bull!
