I want to start by asking if I texted a picture if someone would post it for me Please PM me and many thanks .
I went on a 3 day hunt in the Glass Mountains in Marathon, Texas . It was truly a hunt of a lifetime with Magnum Outfitters on a 15,000 acre ranch . During the 3 days he called in 11 bulls within 60 yards and some being within 20 yards .
The hunt came down to the last evening when I took this 5 x 6 . I was sitting on the edge of a canyon making a 180 yard shot to the valley below using a 300 mag . Unless you have called bulls during rut in that close you cannot imagine the excitement of a worked up bull towering over you .
After the kill the work began . Try to imagine butchering and packing out an animal as big as a horse but it was a labor of love . I don't think I can ever top this hunt of a life time .

Wow, that sounds like an exciting hunt. Hearing bulls and calling several in so close must've bumped up your heart rate a notch or two.
Whoever took your photo did a great job too. That is one magnificent beast.

Definitely the Hunt of a Lifetime.
