Default A weekend in the South Texas brush.

Myself, D~Mo, Ben, and Zac headed to Deep South Texas to a friends ranch to shoot a couple of meat bulls this past weekend. This hunt is quickly becoming my favorite weekend of the year. We loaded up and made the 8+ hour drive.

This year was over the top as I was on the trigger first. My goal was something in a darker phase as I wanted to put one on the wall and the ranch delivered. Nothing beats riding around in the high rack with your buddies.

The plan was to spot and stalk around the ranch. It didnít take long and we had the wind in our face and bulls on parade.

We caught a few bulls feeding into the wind so we jumped out and made the stalk. They had cleared one sendero already so he bounced over to the next. Luckily we got ahead of them and I was setup waiting for them to step clear of the brush. D~Moís dad Weatherby 300 Win Mag rang true and my Nilgai bull fell in his tracks.

Luckily there was the perfect picture spot close by with great light so Legdog should be proud of us.

The celebration was on as D~Mo cooked an awesome dinner of Prime Rib with some brown water on the side.

There is nothing better than a camp fire after meat in the cooler.

The next day Ben was on the trigger to add some meat to the cooler. He doesnít look in kill mode here but he was ready.

Again the plan was to spot and stalk. We had a great seat for the event.

Ben was able to come through and dropped a meat bull as our hunting time was coming to an end. We watched through the binos as the beast soaked up his bullet. Hank was back on point and found him 50 yards in the brush.

With two bulls in the cooler and a great weekend with great friends we pointed north and headed home. Itís amazing the doors TBH has opened up to meet and become friends with awesome people. Iím truly a blessed man for having such great people in my life. I donít kill a lot of animals, but the ones I do all have special meaning and this bull is no different. I canít thank the ranch owner enough for the hospitality and the opportunity.

What better way to celebrate the kill of an animal than by eating the meat of a completely different animal.

Well congratulations to all involved! Dang D-Mo, I may have to invite you to come to our camp! I bet my buddies could find some brown water to keep you busy while you cook!! That looks good enough to make me wanna lick my screen!

Those are some big ol' animals!
