If your trophy hunting well then never mind.
That's the truth, and I won't pass on a shot like that again. I wasn't trophy hunting and that 4x4 would have been ideal. At that moment, I was simultaneously thinking that the closer bull might be a big one and I would regret missing the chance, and I was thinking about it being the first day of the season and I was having fun. Wasn't sure I wanted the season to end so soon and I would have plenty of opportunities.
