I drove 13 hours straight to Nm and blew out a tire and tore up the side of my truck on the way :( Had to buy a whole new set of tires @ $1400 OUCH! But it was all worth it. Goy my bull on the 2nd day. Glassed him from far away and put a sneak on him. I though I lost him as I snuck up right to where I though he was. I started glassing the oposite ride thinking he snuck out but then he buggled and he was litteraly 30 yards from me bihing a large juniper. I snuck up to 20 yards and waited for him to move. He must have caught my wind and he bolted about about 75 yards and then slowed down and turned and looked to see what he was running from. He never should have done that. :) should kept on running :)
