    This is why alot of guides use mules , I'd much rather ride an old mule that a horse that I don't know.
    I had to make a "twitch" once and have a heart to heart with a guides horse once , the guide wasen't happy but when I informed him that it was either him or the horse he kept quiet. The horse behaved himself the rest of the trip and the guide was amazed.
    I still like mules , never had any trouble with one and their a hell of alot more sure footed and smarter than a horse.

    Though I like 'em a lot.......Horses are make the precise shape for a dog food can. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Mine bounced me (years ago) out of the saddle and back to her tail. The next buck saw me sitting a bit below her tail as the rear feet came up. I was looking way down on the junipers from above. Landed on my feet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Rifle was in the scabbard and left with the horse. While looking for both I came across the best 4X4 I saw that year. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    jimm...I only hunt from horses every couple of years but these steeds are hunted from quite a bit and I'm the only person that borrows them.

    JD...Skank actually is (I would like to say WAS) a mule. When I wrote the story I did not think to differentiate. He was good on his feet...just a little "off" in the brain.

    Great story, hunting with horses has been a dream of mine and maybe I might reconsider that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Considering I've never been on a horse, I guess I better stay on my own two feet.
    Good shooting with the XP and I like the camo job too. We have to use shotguns here in WI for any bird even crows, maybe someday....
