If that hog was alive when they roped it that was some good luck work. Now time to get rid of it.

From gymnastics to long range shooting, roping and whatever else in between people have some crazy skills. That's awesome.

And the Cotulla/Encinal area is generally pretty rough country unless heavily improved.

It would take a dedicated rider on a GOOD horse to rope hogs off some of the ranches I've been on down there. I know as soon as you'd reach a Pear Flat...I'd be calling it quits.

Couple years ago I missed the last step coming down a tripod and fell back first into a cactus. After my brother quit laughing and I quit swearing he spent a good bit pulling thorns out of me

I hear ya. The big spines (though they hurt) are easy to see and pull out. It's all the fine 'hair like' one's you never seem to get all out. They fester up and irritate for a long time.

Without a doubt, the greatest cowboy of all time...in a roping pen or in a thicket. I never saw him rope a hummingbird but as a youngster, would rope chickens.
Adios,

I have always had a fascination with ropes. When young, I began roping chickens with para-chord. Learned pretty quick to rope them by the feet instead of the neck as I almost killed a few. Then, moved up to roping ducks, turkeys, sheep, goats, cattle, and horses. I have roped a few domestic pigs and found it easier to let them put one leg through the loop before tightening up.

If you can lead a person and throw a football to them, you should be able to rope an animal, also.

Was on a 3,000 acre ranch near Victoria years ago and watched a whole crew do just that. Truck w/horse trailer full of horses and a truck full of dogs pulled in. They geared up and headed out. Dogs would bay the pigs up (no catch dogs) and the horseman would ride in/rope em', hobble them, and truck would follow behind and load them up. They caught some big boars that way. One of the biggest boars I've ever seen in my life was roped and dragged to death on the O'Conner Ranch by horseman. They did a shoulder mount on that one - beast.

On foot...yeah, most folks can pick it up pretty quickly. Things change on horseback though, lots of dynamics.

Learning to build a loop correctly, rebuild (if you miss) and feed a rope takes some practice and you need to be a good horseman before you become a roper. And of course you need a decent horse that isn't going to scoot out from under you the first time something makes a run at him.

But, yes...anyone with decent hand/eye coordination...(and willing to practice) can learn to rope well enough to do stock work.

I'll be damned.....though there is a drastic difference between an open field and brush country!
