With an Aggie and a Red Raider fixing to get hitched, the likelihood of a burnt orange shirt on that youngster is probably a million to one long shot, but you never know. have to wait a few years to see where he chooses to go.

The love for the burnt orange in our house is not very strong! Sorry, I grew up around a lot of longhorn fans and was a diehard Aggie from a young age. I can't help it!!!!

Well, no good news! We chased a mixed group of sheep around for a couple hours. Had fun stalking and two big four horns in the bunch. One mouflon cross blew the whole gig. Found the biggest bison bull about 45 min before dark. Snuck in to 30 yards or so and got jr on the sticks. Shot was high and forward and minimal penetration. I should have backed him up with the 300 wsm but wanted him to finish the kill. We had one more shot but he was reluctant to shoot the 300. Never found him again. Little dude isn't real happy but tomorrow is another day! Tomorrow we look like hell and lead will fly if need be. Sorry for the downer post but we will finish this!
