Re: Best Of The West
Don't forget that they stated in the beginning that the hunter, Terry I believe, was on his first elk hunt and it was also his first time on horses. I can see how he might not know about tying up a horse with a lead rope and halter as opposed to using the reins. If you remember, John had moved to the left and was tying up his own horse. I saw the usage of the reins initially, but also noticed later the lead rope being used, so I would guess that John saw it as soon as he got his horse tied up and made the correction before they went after the bull. I have seen first time horse hunters not used to horses and hunting just get off their horse and go to the animal that they have down.
If you have seen all of their videos, as well as "Beyond Belief" you have noticed that some times they mention the wind and some times they don't. I agree that if they are going to stress the equipment and in particular the range finders, scopes and dialing the range that they should also mention the wind and how they read it. At long ranges, under windy conditions, it's just as important as the range.
