Dick Garn, a member of Payson's Pro Rodeo Committee, gets a good look at a bull named "Wild Thing," part of the stock brought into Payson Thursday for this weekend's 2003 Gary Hardt Memorial Spring PRCA Rodeo.
According to stock contractor Jerry Honeycutt, Wild Thing has a reputation for jumping out of the chute and should be a wild ride.
