PRCA Hall of Fame Bullfighter Dunn Shot

 

COLORADO SPRINGS, (PRCA) – ProRodeo Hall of Fame bullfighter and rodeo clown Rex Dunn, shot during a struggle with an intruder at his Waurika, Okla., ranch on May 27, is back home recovering from his injury after a 24-hour hospital stay.
Dunn, 55, was feeding his cattle at around 5 p.m. on that Friday afternoon when he saw an unknown man lurking near his barn. He got the .22 caliber long-barrel handgun that he had bought for his wife, Tracy, and his two teenage sons armed themselves to join him in the search.
Coyote, 16, took a shotgun to check the road, and Jace, 19, had a 9mm semi-automatic he took with him to flank the barn.
When Dunn went to the front door of the barn, he saw a man climbing over the back fence to escape.
“I hollered for him to stop, because I didn’t want to shoot him,” Dunn said. “I had the gun cocked and was watching him when another guy came out of the trees next to the barn and knocked me to the ground.
“I was on my back and had the gun stuck in his stomach. I had time to think, ‘Should I shoot him?’ I didn’t know if I could face murder charges. I didn’t know exactly where my boys were and if they might be in danger.

The two of us were wrestling for control of the gun when he turned the barrel and pulled the trigger. It all happened so fast.”

When the gun went off, the assailant took off through the trees with Dunn firing all eight remaining rounds in the gun to hasten the man’s retreat.
Dunn called younger son, Coyote, on his cell phone to tell him, ‘I’ve been shot, come get me.’”
The bullet penetrated an inch below the first rib on Dunn’s left side, passing through flesh about three inches in from his waist, and damaged no organs.
He was treated at Jefferson County Hospital in Waurika and was held overnight for observation, in part because he has Stage IV cancer (renal cell carcinoma) and doctors wanted to be sure there were no complications.
Thirty units from regional law enforcement agencies were brought in to search for the villains, which included the use of helicopters and tracking dogs, without result.
“The dogs picked up the scent a few times,” Dunn said, “but they lost them for good in a thicket about three-quarters of a mile from our place. I think these guys were looking for stuff they could steal after dark and didn’t think anybody would notice them.
“I guess I’m pretty lucky it didn’t turn out any worse than it did.”
1. Beers and a Cooper chaser make for a heady mix in Grande Prairie
GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alberta – Brandon Beers and Jim Ross Cooper are hoping the scrapbook photo of them roping dummies together when they were pre-teens will soon have a companion piece showing them roping steers at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Beers and Cooper have been friends and sometimes roping partners almost from the day they first met in the late 1980s, when their dads competed in the Timed Event Championships in Guthrie, Okla. This year, they’re kicking it up a notch.
They combined for a 4.3-second run to win the May 26-29 Grande Prairie Stompede and earned a fourth-place check at the May 27-29 Bonnyville (Alberta) ProRodeo to bank $2,872 each and maintain their spots in the Top 15 of the PRCA World Standings.
Beers is 15th among headers and Cooper is 14th in the heeler standings.
“Jim and I have roped together since we were little,” Beers said. “We’ve been roping together forever, and we knew we roped well together. A couple years ago, we roped together at the end of the year. (Jim’s twin brother) Jake got hurt and had knee surgery, so Jim and I roped and we roped well then.
“We roped together a lot, and we knew that it would come sooner or later.

We told each other when we started that we’d rope together all year, and probably for years to come. We’re going to stick it out, no matter what. It really feels like things are starting to get easier as a team – not necessarily easier to win, but easier to catch the steer we run. Everything’s starting to feel really good.”

Cooper is equally enthusiastic about this evolving partnership and their chances of making it into their second Wrangler NFR. Both made it in 2007 with family members, Cooper with his brother, Jake, and Beers with his dad, 1984 World Champion Team Roper Mike Beers.
What helps, apart from the evident skills each brings to the partnership, is that there is a level of trust and understanding that has developed over the years.
“We’ve always been buddies, and we’d hang out at the junior shows,” Cooper said. “At the (national) high school finals, we’d rope at the jackpots together. Brandon went to college for a year or two in Weatherford (Texas), and then he moved down to Stephenville, Texas, with Jake and me for about a year or a little more.
“We both have the same goals. We both like to jackpot, and we have the same strategy at roping. We want to make a lot of good runs and maybe catch a few more steers, so we don’t put so much emphasis on winning first place. When Jake and I decided not to rope together this year, Brandon was the first guy who called me and wanted to rope. It meant a lot that somebody wanted to rope with me.”
The other emerging partnership that had a big weekend in Canada was Beers’ dad, Mike, and four-time World Champion Bareback Rider Bobby Mote.
Beers and Mote won in Bonnyville with a time of 4.6 seconds, finished third in Grande Prairie (5.3) and banked $2,946 each. Oddly, Mote won just $642 combined in bareback riding for the weekend.
“Bobby’s really getting strong at his team roping,” said Brandon Beers, “and my dad obviously knows what he’s doing. I think they’re going to be a good team.
“Bobby Mote will be strong at anything sooner or later. He’s got that drive where he’s not going to fail. That’s just how he is. He will be strong at team roping. He’s strong now, but he’ll figure out how to be competitive at a high-end level. Failure is not something that’s possible for that guy.”
The other champions at the $112,203 rodeo at Grande Prairie’s Evergreen Park were bareback rider Dustan McPhee (86.5 points), steer wrestler Ross Eickhoff (3.5 seconds), saddle bronc rider Cort Scheer (84.5 points), tie-down ropers Steve Lloyd and Cade Swor (8.0 seconds each), bull rider Ty Elliott (88.5 points) and barrel racer Lee Ann Rust (15.36 seconds).
2. Claremore tie-down roping event is all about Hartt
CLAREMORE, Okla. – Droughts are part of any sport, and the biggest factor in overcoming them is confidence.
Take Brad Hartt, a tie-down roper from Sebring, Fla. He’s been roping well; he just hasn’t done so well in securing that quality calf on which to compete. The animals and the contestants are matched together by a blind draw, and it hasn’t treated Hartt so well recently.
That changed at the May 27-29 Will Rogers Stampede, where Hartt posted a 7.8-second run to rip the championship from the hands of 14-time World Champion Trevor Brazile.
“I just had a good calf,” said Hartt, a three-time Southeastern Circuit champion. “I’d been waiting on him all week.”
That’s a testament to the sometimes-frustrating game cowboys play in the world of rodeo. But perseverance also is part of the equation. Hartt has stayed close to home for most of his eight-year career, but he’s finished in the top 50 in the tie-down roping standings three times.
That’s pretty good for a cowboy who has missed most of the last two years of competition.
“I just stayed home and worked,” said Hartt, who runs a 1,500-head cow-calf ranch. “I’ll go some this year.”
And, like every man in the game, there are plenty of dreams of playing on its biggest stage, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
“That’s always my goal,” he said. “Right now, I just want to win my circuit again.”
Brazile won the first round and the two-head average in the steer roping with a time of 22.1 seconds – his fifth steer roping title this year – and, with his tie-down roping earnings factored in, won the all-around title with $4,120.
The other champions at the Will Rogers Stampede Arena were bareback rider Caine Riddle (86 points), steer wrestler Dean Gorsuch (3.9 seconds), team ropers Blake Hughes and Steve Orth (5.2 seconds), saddle bronc rider Jacobs Crawley (80 points), bull rider Trevor Kastner (87 points) and barrel racer Carlee Pierce (16.96 seconds).
• Logan Gledhill, a 19-year-old permit holder from Huntsville, Texas, made his first big splash in PRCA competition over the Memorial Day weekend, winning the steer wrestling and the all-around titles at both Rodeo Killeen (Texas) and the Cowboy Capital ProRodeo in Bandera, Texas. His bulldogging time in Bandera was an eye-catching 3.8 seconds, eight-tenths of a second faster than Jacob Shofner in second place.
• Veteran Columbia River Circuit cowboy Brett Hale, 38, pulled off a triple at the May 28-29 Last Stand Rodeo in Coulee City, Wash. – his first rodeo of the year – by winning the tie-down roping (11.1 seconds), steer roping (27.9 seconds on two head) and the all-around titles. Hale, of Tenino, Wash., had total earnings of $2,945 and, of that, $2,127 came in steer roping, more than doubling his career earnings in the event.
• Dustin Smith’s 90-point ride on Classic Pro Rodeo’s Dew Drop was not only good enough to win the May 27-28 Louisiana Southern Fried PRCA Rodeo in West Monroe, La., it was the highest score in his three-year PRCA bareback riding career. The Rome, Ga., cowboy’s previous best score was an 88 at Perry, Ga., earlier this season.
• Saddle bronc rider Cooper Ray DeWitt, 22, was the only contestant to win all three segments of the Safford (Ariz.) ProRodeo. He had a 69-point ride on JK Rodeo’s No. 5 to win the May 26 event, a 74-pointer on JK Rodeo’s Shadow to win again in the May 27 rodeo and wrapped up his sweep with a 75-point effort on JK Rodeo’s Guadalupe Gal. The Rio Rico, Ariz., cowboy finished with total earnings of $878.
• Texas and Oklahoma are generally recognized as having the most depth in tie-down roping, but it would be a mistake to overlook the Wilderness Circuit’s crew. The Pony Express Days Rodeo in Eagle Mountain, Utah, was won by Matt Shiozawa in 8.1 seconds (he was also all-around champion), followed by fellow Wilderness ropers Rhen Richard (8.6), Nate Baldwin (8.7) and Clint Robinson (9.2).

4. Diesel Formula Sta-Bil jumps on as Xtreme Bulls sponsor
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.

– The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) is excited to announce a new partnership with Chicago-based Gold Eagle Company and its Diesel Sta-Bil brand as Official Sponsor of the PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls Tour and media partner of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

Diesel Formula Sta-Bil debuted in the PRCA’s coverage of the Dodge National Circuit Finals on Great American Country (GAC) and made its on-site debut at the Xtreme Bulls stop in Laughlin, Nev., last month.
“Given the hands-on nature of our sport, we are proud to partner with quality products like Diesel Formula Sta-Bil, which embraces the same values, toughness and character that this lifestyle demands,” said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “Diesel Formula Sta-Bil’s commitment to ProRodeo and our media partnership with GAC shows how our strategic move attracts a broad demographic that live the Western lifestyle and captures those brands looking to capitalize on the loyal fans of our sport.”
Diesel Formula Sta-Bil keeps diesel fuel fresh, while also cleaning and lubricating fuel injectors to improve the performance of diesel engines. It also prevents sludge and sediment formation within the fuel tank. It is safe for all diesel fuels and engines, including agricultural and marine, and is recommended for use at every fill-up.
“STA-BIL(R) and the entire Gold Eagle Co. are pleased to be partnering with the PRCA and the Xtreme Bulls Series,” said Tom Bingham Gold Eagle Co. Director of Marketing. “Bull riding and rodeo fans across the U.S. are at the core of our target audience, and we are excited to build brand awareness through these exciting events.”
5. PRCA Xtreme Bulls partners with Iso-HEET as sponsor
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Chicago-based Gold Eagle Company and its Iso-HEET brand as Official Sponsor of the PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls Tour and media partners of the PRCA championship events and the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Iso-HEET debuted in the PRCA’s coverage of the Dodge National Circuit Finals on Great American Country (GAC) and made its on-site debut at the Xtreme Bulls stop in Laughlin, Nev., last month.

“Iso-HEET products are well known and respected for protecting engines in harsh winter conditions and removing water from all fuels.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “It’s like dancing. You know how we dance with a person? It’s the same thing with a bull. It’s rhythm. The bull leads, you follow. When the bull’s bucking, you have to be in time and in rhythm.”
— ProRodeo Hall of Fame roughstock cowboy Harry Tompkins, telling the Billings Gazette the secret to being a successful bull rider.
