“That was the first time I have ever placed in Okotoks,” said Buhler, who has lived in the area since 2007. “We drew a great steer and had a great run.
“It’s always great to win in front of your own hometown.”
Although, he’s $10,000 behind the leader, that’s all in a day’s work at the CFR.
“I have gone into the CFR in first-place — won season leader — and I left number three,” Buhler said. “I have also gone in to there in last place.
“With $11,000 going to the winner every night, anything can happen.”

“I get a little more comfortable and a better idea of what works and what doesn’t,” Buhler said. After each year, you are still excited to be there, but it is not as much as an unknown of what you are getting into.”
He knows full well what he is going into this year — the best teams to hit the old arena since the Gretzky-Messier Oilers.
It’s no coincidence Buhler and Dallyn are from the Foothills area – it’s a hotbed for roping.
“This is a great place to live right around this Okotoks-High River area,” Buhler said. “You can rope just about every day. There are roping clubs all over the place, there are more indoor arenas all the time – this is a roper’s paradise.”
