In hnlh cases it's largely i question rf miking the rijht drci'ion at the risht time. Practice is essential lo this event and some bulltlogging e» perls even improve their pnclice sessions by studying movies of other steer wrestling greats, care f u l l y noting f l m s in liming ind tricks of balance. Time i* a basic factor in the e v e n t . Wilh a slip or trip costing valuable second, a cowboy must m a k e good start out of the chute, whether Ihe loct! rulei require starts behind the barrier o' Up and tip. Steers are given i pre-determined head Mirt in most lirge irenis. A scoreline' is marked sevcril feet in front of the rhute, and one nf the fliemcn stands n e x t to this line, with a line lo i spring litch holding i rope icrois the hot where the contestant wiils. When the steer dishes irross the scoreline. Ihe flagman drops his flic, simultaneously pulling Ihe rope barrier from in front of the bulldogger, and the race is on.
