would love to even see a bull

Congrates to you and your dad, well done. 

Reading through our posts about the legal bulls spotted and passed on to get to the harvested animals is an intriguing and foreign concept to me and obviously demonstrates the point that the unit hunted does make a huge difference and I doubt any OTC unit would qualify as a unit likely to produce the kind of action you and your dad experienced.  Three of us hunted second rifle OTC 65 in 2008 seeing only 4 cows total and two of us went to 71 second rifle OTC in 2010 seeing two cows each.  We have no idea of what seeing a bull of any kind, much less legal or mature, in the wild feels like.  The concept of passing on the first legal bull sighted is so unreal to us as to seem almost like a fairy tale. 

Guess we  are just going to have to save more money, get more pref points, then hope and pray to score a decent draw tag.

Man!

That is a beautifull bull! Very happy for your dad on a fine animal and for you to get to be with him for it. Nothing better then hunting with our fathers who taught us the ways.

Congrats!
