Have the same fence problem down here!
A very large range fire, this summer, took out their winter feed. There are two herds. One of 48 that is a regular yearly event. The other is/was 110 that are new comers.
Blocked Rich Lane, east of Blkft, twice. Sheriff and F&G closed the road on two different days.
A funny/sad scenario.
Pickup pulls up to road block. Driver sees what's going on.
Says to fish cop, "Can I shoot one?" Fish cop only if you have a tag, don't shoot from the road and get land owner permission."
Driver asks, "Who's the land owner?"
A third fella says "Me."
Driver says "can I shoot one?"
Land owner says, "Sure."
Driver walks over to a fence post and asks "Far enough off the road?"
Fish cop says "yes."
Bang, flop! 25 yard base of head shot.
Lots of help getting it loaded in the pick up after permission to drive a few feet through the gate.
It's one of those years.
