special landowner permit bull

caylen_bull1_smallThe majority of the stalk was easy. I knew where they were, and with the wind howling there wasn’t any way they could smell or hear me, and it being mid-day and overcast, they were surely bedded for the day. I came up on them with the wind in my face, but by the time I could see the tips of the bull’s antlers I was already within 50 yards and seeing the tops of cows’ heads. So I backed out and circled for a flanking shot. After about 30 minutes I got to where I had to crawl, and from there I made my way to a couple rocks that got me above the grass for a shot from the sitting position using the rocks as a support. The range was 147 yards, and I wasn’t complaining one bit. He was bedded facing away from me, and every so often he’d turn his head to look at cows. I checked my Natural Point of Aim one last time, and the next time he turned his head, I sent a 6.5mm Berger 140-grain Hunting VLD. He died where he laid, and never even kicked a leg.”  ]]>
