    If you have thoughts of hiring a guide to help with the hunt I would start researching and make that selection first and then see what areas he or she may recommend.
    Good Luck,
    Rob

    Congrats to your son ! You better start working on his " nerves " . When that bull comes within bow range screaming and thrashing trees , it's quite tough to remain calm enough to make a good shot . They look bigger than a horse at close range . Try to get him close to as many as you can before the hunt to get him use to their size . Good luck and enjoy the hunt . My son was drawn last year for a bull tag and I know that I"m just as proud of the bull he killed as he was . I still carry 8x10 pictures of it in my truck and show them to any one that will look at them . I wish that I would have video taped the hunt . Enjoy your son"s hunt .
