    Looks pretty much perfect, acts like a bigger Amax, and that's a good thing. Congrats on a great shot and a fine bull.

    Nice job, congrats.

    That looks like an awfully big bull that put all of his groceries into fattening up for you!

    d-man, nice shooting. Looks perhaps like an outfitter hunt. Lots of memories and freezer filling!

    This was a public land DIY hunt. Those are llamas that I rented in the background. I took them, went in 4 miles and camped out.

    That reminds me. I was to report my experiences with llamas on here.

    Google llamas on here. Their is a post I replied to.

    Basically a one to two hour introduction training. Llamas rode on back of a pick up with a wood frame installed by owner at time of pickup. They carry 80 to 100 pounds. Zero trouble. A child could lead.

    At camp offer water once a day and move every other day to new grass. They stake out like a dog. Zero problems.

    Not much left of that bullet for such a long shot. Wondering what would happen if you jumped one up at 50 yards? Wait for him to run away or take your chances.
