    I was at a friends farm yesterday, We were just standing around talking when his 10 year old son comes running past the barn looking quite disturbed. Well the dad went to the house to check on the boy and I went past the barn to look. Well there was a cow with a small hole in it's forehead! There was a wrist rocket laying on the ground, The cow was dead. I cut it's throat and got the front loader to process. The dad was really cool, We quartered and I went home. Boys will be boys.

    A wrist Rocket went through a Cows Skull?

    WOW I wonder why all the guys around here with mobile slaughter trucks use at least a .222 Rem. and a couple use a 7.62 X 39

    The cows owner has a very big heart. I am not clear on the whole event, I wasnt there, but if had been my cow someone would be handing me a grand or so. Im also feeling like boys will be boys doesnt get it here. That boy needs to learn a few things. Hate to see him with a rifle.

    Sorry. Again, I wasnt there and I dont know anyone involved. Just had to many dogs,cats, and yeah stock shot too. We had a few cows once. We had less after someone thought it would be entertaining to warm up on them during bow season. Nothing I hate worse than wanton and malicious killing and destruction.

    I killed my friends Steer, he was away at the 4H national tractor operators contest, I came in the gate and put a bucket of oats down to latch the gate, I walked over to water and hay them, when I came back From the Haystack, I saw a steer finishing off a 5 gallon bucket of oats. I'll never forget the smell that came from his bloated stomach, we shove a hose down it's throat, it looked more like a camel hump when his grandpa stabbed it. Alas, all life saving techniques were for naught. For the next few days, the thing just laid there with its tongue hanging out looking at me every time I walked past it. We moved it with the farm hand a few days later onto a flatbed, and then off to the rendering plant.
