Friday Shoot Out- Signs



Friday Shoot Out.

Theme
Unusual signage







Right to the point.



The Boone Bull

Boone's Butcher Shop was opened in 1952 and has always had a life sized bull on the top.
This bull has been stolen, shot at and defaced in numerous ways but the bull hangs on.

Mr. Luel Boone opened the store in 1952 and he and his family ran it for years.
His son Jerry is now the owner operator. 

Go here for more Friday Shoot Out entries.

The bull still looks good after 60 years, amazing!

Things like that bull take on a life of their own. I can just hear it in my mind: "take the road until you see the bull then make a right. You can't miss it." I love when signs like these become landmarks in their own right.

Love them!! We had a restaurant when I was little with a huge bull/cow? outside of it. of course, I didn't realize I was eating it! and someone always stole it too! How funny!

Great signs. There's a dairy near how with a cow about that size on the roof. Perhaps we can hook them up??? :)

I've only once seen a similiar bull - in Bundaberg, Australia. My brother lived next door and with that landmark it was easy to find his house. Will have to check if it is still there. Thanks for the story behind the sign.

At least they used a "before" image of the bull.
