LOL...that was pretty much it. I happened so fast I just reacted. Passed up one the day before that was roughly the same size and missed a bigger one in the monsoon the same day. Freestanding head shot at 130 yards...no bueno thumbdown

All done with the local stuff now and my pregnant wife can't be happier :D

Had my chances over there Jim but never could pull the trigger. Just needed one more second to bag a true masher muley...but that's the way she goes. Hopefully you guys filled some tags in your area thumbup

Yep, we pulled 2 out of our spot this year. I made it last a few days this season by getting one on Monday evening, instead of opening morning and a 30 minute hunt rofl

Glad you got to stretch it out a bit Jim :D

As we were busy wrapping up the radio show this morning my hunting partner Fred was busy hanging his tag on this dandy blacktail thumbup
