Saturday night I went with David and his Boy Scout Troop on an outing to the "CowTown Rodeo" in Wrightstown, NJ. We went last year also and everybody had a great time. It's amazing that this place exists in New Jersey. You would honestly think that you were in a western state. Every body in the stands is in full western attire. The Rodeo participants are amazing! There is no way that I would ever win enough prize money to ride one of these bulls! There was at least one serious injury as a rider was pinned under a bronc while in the shoot. It took quite awhile to remove him from under the horse. This is a shot of one particularly agressive bull. He proceeded to ram the Rodeo Clown and send him and his barrel flying.

I found out that New Jersey is a major breeding area for Brahma Bulls that are used in the Rodeo circuit. The rodeo is every Saturday night at 7:30 PM. I would recommend anyone who has the chance to stop by and experience it. :smile:

That's really a great shot Dave. The DOF is perfect and the image speaks volumes. You were certainly in the right place at the right time. Great capture.

Thanks Frank. I was using the 80-400 VR and I was close to 400mm for this shot. I didn't have a lot of luck as the lens is just to slow (aperature) for low light action shots. This was at 800 ISO with my D2h. I wish that I had tried my D50 with this lens combo this night just to see how the D50 handled the higher ISO settings.
