Congrates on the bull. It's great when somebody draws a limited entry tag.
I have to agree, My horses and I always do better during and after the hunting season. Instead of plodding down a well maintain trail with the mountain bikers and hikers, They have deal with steep mountains, blow down trees, rocks and ledges. Often with more weight than they carried all summer, what with hunting cloths, lunchs and rifles etc being tied onto the saddles. The occassion hunter bailing off and shooting at game, The excitement of game busting out of cover and running off, having to carry new gamey smells and blood. Having to be high lined all night and trying to find enough to eat on the mountain side.
Yep. Its good experience for the horses to learn to work.
