    OOOOoooh! That would have looked good over my fireplace. What happened eddybo, did you run out of arrows?

    I wanted one of those for a couple of years but when the opportunity arose I decided to pass. I got the card out of my camera the other day and now all I can do is kick myself.

    It was in South MS, the animal was not free ranging, but he werent a pet either. I hunted him for a full day just to get w/n photo range. He finally walked near enough for a bow shot and I decided he wasnt big enough for some reason and let him pass. When I got my card out of my camera and looked again after five months I cant beleive I gave him a pass.

    I can't believe you passed that. Especially with a bow. That's freaking ludicrous.

    Truly a beautiful animal! Better go back! Hard to poke a hole in something so pretty.
