I hope this is a picture from transfer day and they are out running around in a huge area and make you work hard to get him.
Brickburn, yes indeed. The picture was taken by the breeder who sold them to the outfitter. The breeder sent the pictures to see if my outfitter was interested in buying them. He bought three bulls and sent me a picture of all 3 yesterday. One of them is really old and has lost his tips, the other one does not have a symetrical arch to his horns. This one was the best - symetrical with nice tips. As I said in the initial post, I had called him a few days ago to discuss something else when he threw this opportunity at me. I have spoken to him every day since then and he told yesterday he has seen at least one of them each day. He said in the 8 days I would be there we would most likely find them but they were not tied to a tree. The outfitter has over 5,000 acres so I hope he is right.
Hopefully I'll post a picture of one of them when I get back at the end of April.
I'd be very happy with a 36" sable.
These were taken last season. We had ten sable taken ranging from 36"-46"
The bull on the top is approx. 36" and the one on the bottom is just under 46"
The 36" was one of the oldest bulls on the concession and its horns were somewhat worn.
That gives you a great idea about the size difference.
Don't think you can get a better comparison than that. That top one is old, just look how worn the tips are.
Wow!!! Perfect pictures and exactly what I was hoping to get when I posted this thread. Thank you!!!!
The price from the outfitter is just too good to pass up and I will be one of the first ones in camp so I will get to pick from all 3. Wish I was leaving tomorrow.
Thanks again to all who posted.
Nice pics to compare. I am for "trophies on my wall", but if I would have the chance to shoot a bull old like this in the first pic I would take him, old old, character, selfhiding for years... a unique trophy. For sure, all depending on situation...
That one was easy for me:)
I would choose the old guy without a doubt.
take the old one.
Picture 2 looks like the oldest one. Should be a great hunt!
