That's funny!

Set a video camera up for the first try. I want to see how big a truck one can drive between you and the saddle. You can get a horse to settle down but I think it's bad for their ears unless you cover them.

    Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
    The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

    I decided a long time ago-the only time I'm shooting off a horse is to get the SOB before he gets me.

    That's why I haven't tried it, I know I could talk my older mare into it but I think it's pretty hard on em without specific loads for that purpose. Besides the old girl would probably bite me for it

    Pretty common anymore. I do think some put ear plugs in. If I get to anywhere close to this guy I would be elated.
