I had a friend shoot one with an arrow. Complete penetration through both lungs but you could sit down and watch a game show in the time it took it to die. Charging buffalo with a bow for defense are best watched from a different location than the guy with the bow. Holly crap was that scary, it's been almost thirty years ago and I still can see the look of terror on my buddies face.
They have seriously bad attitude when prodded. Shoot them with something big and mean, I would say a 300 mag is a little light. They are huge and incredibly tough. MTBULLET is right on 45-70 or some other slow mover with a huge slug. 30-06 with a 168 is not a very good choice. It may work fine and then again .....
You don't want one walking over to see what you are up to.
thanks for all the info
really a head shot is not a option
I want to bleach the skull out and put it with the rest of my skulls
More than likely we will be taking around three two cows and one bull
most of it will not be for us
If it works out it will be a cow for my buddy(thats a sure thing)
a cow for another guy and 1/4 or 1/2 of the bull for me cant afford the whole bull
plus I have half a cow a deer and a bear in my freezer now and IM looking for one more deer.
I am planning having the skull done and the hide tanned
