J. and I were going to tranquilize the bull and saw
problem. we did not have enough of the drugs to do a
So we walked out
there and sawed one point off of the dead bulls
right antler and then we had to saw the main beam of the
left antler to
get the other bull free. The whale tail was over the
bulls eyes, lodged

still in it's
antlers. When it took off the piece of antler came out...
WOW! This was for sure one of the most memorable
Enjoy the pics.
