They're all different animals right? Any particular reason why all of their right horns are 'stumpy' compared to their left?

Yes they are all different animals. Well I suppose all of them are "right horned", like us, they also have a preferred side. Like I am right handed, it is the same with them. They fight and rub using the preferred side the most, causing them to wear of one side more. But in some cases they just break that horn clean of.

I think I have read that Elephants are similar, having a preferred tusk. Really interesting, thanks.

Just got home after a hunt, and could get some pictures from a hide of some nice bulls

So, am I right in thinking the second lot of pics are ambidextrous as they all look quite even.

 

joking aside they are some big lumps of beast, your a lucky guy going out and seeing/working with them.

Haha yes maybe they just dont work very much with either horn...a bunch of lazy, hard headed cattle...but yes joking aside, I am honoured to be able to experience all of this.

To shoot a good old bull the middle bit of horns has to be fused together ?? i saw somebody telling the difference in a dvd :laugh::laugh:

That is not entirely true. Yes it is great if you can find a bull that has completely closed up boss, but it doesnt always happen. It all depends on the genetics of the bull. Some bulls will never close up on top, but that doesnt mean it is not a good bull. Yes you always want something with a completely hard boss, but they dont always come together completely.
