SIOUX CITY | A bucking bull named in honor of a fallen Marine will make his debut appearance at the Rawhide Bull Riding Challenge Jan. 20-21 at the Tyson Events Center.
Sniper is a black Brahman-Crossbred bull that was named after 21-year-old Marine Hunter "HD" Hogan, who was killed in action in June 2012 in Afghanistan, a press release said.
Owner Marty Barnes, of Barnes PRCA Rodeo, from Peterson, Iowa, bought the bull after he learned all proceeds went to a scholarship in memory of Hogan, the release said.
