    4A Success

    We arrived on camp Wednesday last week, the late start was due to hectic work schedules. After setting up camp my hunting partner and I decided to set the evening on a wallow. We left camp early for the 2 mile hike to the wallow. The conditions were not that great with very high winds but we were excited to be out there hunting. At about 4:30 after not seeing or hearing anything we heard a bugle and it was very close. I looked to the left and could see this bull and he was within 70 yards of me. It is amazing how quiet these giant animals can be. I continued to watch him close the distance until he was at 25 yards. I raised my bow and drew as his eyes were blocked by a tree and he continued to get closer. He finally turned broadside at 19 yards and I let the arrow fly. When the arrow hit I could tell it was pretty far back, it was a clean pass through and I could already see blood running down his opposite side. After a few quick calls the bull stopped at 75 yards to look back at us. I was pretty frustrated with myself because I rushed the shot and hit him far back. The bull slowly walked off as we watched. We remained still for an hour then slowly I retrieved my arrow. it was covered with blood so I knew it was a fatal hit. we began tracking and after about 100 yards the blood was getting very thin. I was walking small circles trying to find some sign when I scanned the hill in front of me and I spotted him on top of the hill. He had only made it about 200 yards! After quartering him out we started the 2 mile pack back to camp. The week was completed on Monday when my hunting partner scored on a nice 5x6 after we had sat on a water hole all day long. Thanks for reading!

    I think these calves are just playing, sibling rivalry I guess. As for the lead cow in a herd I do believe there is a head cow in every herd that is the "all seeing eye." I have heard that the lead cow is more difficult to fool than a bull but I am by far no expert.

    Thanks for the tip! So far so good with the camera. Picked it up at Cabela's for $59.00. The only strange part is it only has an off and on switch, to set the clock you have to install a new sd card and turn the camera on. Then you turn the camera off and remove the sd card and insert it into a computer. When you open your card with your computer there is a clock type program that you set to the correct time. Finally you eject the card and immediately put it back in the camera and its ready to go. I was a little worried when I pulled the card yesterday because there was some condensation inside not on the batteries though. So I guess it will work fine for my needs. Thanks again for the tip. Keeping my fingers crossed for a nice bull picture.
