PaRu, SCI has a record book for High Fence. I heard he paid 100,000 to kill that bull. To each their own......the hunter said, "It'll look great in my office" and I'm sure it will. Do you ever see bulls like this one down in Crested Butte?
I wouldnt pay for it. But I sure would have liked to shoot it And atleast make it challenging on a farm shoot from 400 500 yrds and take him down one shot then you have a little something to feel happy about after you shoot a tame Bull.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
