Dammit, I drug that freakishly heavy mug 300 yards through a muddy field and against a northern cold front that was blowing so hard you had to lean into the wind to walk. When I got to the truck I couldn't breath or talk and almost threw up. That cold wind in the lungs, pulling a 150 pound pronghorn through the mud 300 yards by yourself aint no joke. I watched a Marty Stoufford documentary on pronghorns and he said they had special blood cells that allowed the pronghorn to not get winded and able them to run clear out of sight. I shot that one running and Im glad I made the kill because he would of been gone baby gone. Those suckers can get down. A jack rabbit is just the opposite they make a run and their muscles lock up. A good rabbit dog can run one down when this happens and make the kill himself or herself. Thanks for the info.
Sometimes you just have to hold back. The odds are stacked against me and him. Then you see him in mid Febuary with full head gear and the glory hits you. Next season will be wanted even more.
