We live in a subdivision in Colorado Springs. Not country at all but on the west side of I25 and about 2-3 miles to the base of the Front Range. Muleys are thick in the neighborhood. We also have bears, bobcats, coyotes and cougars roaming through our yards.
Legally I can shot on my property but do not as the wife does not want to shoot the pets. Also it would not be much of a hunt sitting on the back porch and shooting it at the water trough. As I have said before, I would like to find his sheds come this spring and make a mount of them.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
