Thing that worries me is CWD chronic wasting disease. Just now starting to hear of it as a problem in Texas. It supposed only effects cervids. They are ruminants as well. I know of no problems yet in domestic livestock. We didn’t deal with lepto until feral hogs got so bad.

It doesn’t have to be a buck for me.
I am going to put two in the freezer regardless of sex. After that I am back to chasing tree rats.

Come on CB get real. You come all the way out here to central Texas to hunt a high fence ranch and kill what they call cull bucks. Probably not very good eating either but you get the thrill of the kill and the rack.

I wish I could still drive out there.
Be two years this October since I have been to Central or South.
I haven’t been able to handle a deer by myself in almost ten years. If you remember I went to geriatric bow hunting several years ago.
Like looking at different country.
The thrill was Jose skinning and quartering it TB.

That would be a heck of a fall if you got bucked off.

Yes sir it would CB. You’d have a few seconds on the ride down to reminisce on your choices before the sudden stop.

Kinda what I thought . Me and another fellow were friends with a guy who ran a drive thru safari . Had the occasion to help unload a jaguar once , unloaded the small cage to the big cage. Said kitty was mad, and attempted to come out , friend slammed the door on the big cage , but it didn't latch , and bounced back open . Everything came out ok, but ole snoopy was in the truck !
