Thanks for the story and congrats on an unusual bull.

One thing I learned many years ago is don't stop hunting just because you are heading back to the truck. It proved true again this year, just as it did for you.

After a day of seeing and hearing nothing I found myself a mile from the truck on a high ridge. My hunting buddy had broken/sprained his ankle when we were coming out in the dark a couple days before and since I was alone I decided to get out before dark. Less than 10 yards after I started picking my way down the first slope, 5 cows came through a saddle I had crossed earlier during my ascent. Now my freezer is full again. The time to quite hunting is 30 minutes after sundown - at least here in Colorado.

Congrats, Chris. That is a cool bull. Good for you. You did better than we did.
