Skull

I've got the skull laying in the back yard next to a flower bed. My dog thought it was a big bone one day and started nibbling on it. LOL.

I've got it out of his reach now.

I've got him mounted

I didn't plan on selling it, but if you make an offer I can't refuse, I might have too. Trophy bull mount cost me over $1.5K to do; and there is a big sentimental value too.

Congrats!!!! That thing is a MONSTER!!! Sounds like a story you'll remember for a lifetime.

I've hunted deer and elk in the Rockies as long as I can remember. Heck I was concieved on a deer hunt but let's not get off topic. I've always wondered how run and gun hunting/shooting in the high country compared to military shooting. It sounds like they can be two different animals in some cases. I spend a lot of time and energy practicing for scenarios exactly as you found yourself in. I've even passed up some shots because I couldn't get steady enough.

You probably have forgotten more about shooting than I know. With that being said I have always believed that proper breathing was important to accuracy but when I'm out of breath I have found that if you can aquire your target quickly it's helpful to hold your breath and you will actually be a bit steadier. Works for me anyway. I only hold my breath though when I'm panting heavily......it's not something I would do in a calmer situation. Has anyone else tried this?

What'd the hunt cost you? Did you butcher yourself?

I'm not sure of the size of the ranch but it would be considered a high fence hunt. As far as price you can shoot what you can afford to pay.
