Fantastic thread!!! The thought of chasing one of those big bulls just sends a shiver down my spine. Great pics. Great posts. Why did I wait so long to join trad gang?! John PS When I was little my Grandfather had a big Brahma bull in Texas and that was one mean bull. You could not even go in the pasture whithout him charging you. Once he got a hold on my Grandfather one time too many and we had him for dinner!!!

I guided a few hunters to them, but not many bowhunters take scrub bulls, they just don't hang around long when they know you are there, most times you just see them moving out at about 80 yards. I would have been happy to take several I have seen, but when I was hunting, I couldn't find a good one and when I did find one, I always had a paying hunter. If you see Cory at the top of the page with his buffalo, we actually saw a couple of really good scrub bulls on that hunt, one was a big old gray bugger that we could have taken if we had thought quick enough, but Cory wasn't sure whether he wanted it or not and it was his shot, before we could get it straightened out he was long gone. I did have two other bowhunters who took a really big, golden colored bull with some bramhman in it, if SCI was accepting scrub bulls still it would have been the new world archery record.
