- Description: 308" 6x6 shot in New Mexico October 10th, 2009. An old nasty bull called in with only 15 minutes left in a 5 day hunt. Hadn't seen a thing all week...finally the last day I had a shot at a running bull from 200 yards; through trees and all. Not a real chance. Went and sat in a ditch for the last evening not expecting anything. Used a cow call a few times and had this dandy walk over the hill trotting right at me. I was not going to miss this opportunity. I couldn't get a shot over the ditch, so I ran 30 yards to the left to get a shot. Hit him at 140 yards. He's a year or two past his prime, but his weight and mass was incredible!!!
