GRAND FORKS, Minn. — Professional bull riders and some of the meanest bulls are preparing themselves to make it to the finals at the Professional Bull Riders Grand Forks Chute Out Saturday, April 15.

PBR Keith Hall is currently on his way from another competition in Texas in hopes to be crowned top 30 at this competition.

Hall said the way to winning does not only depend on the bull.

"You don't really worry about what the bull is going to do, you just have to prepare yourself the best way you know how, " Hall said.

Starting his career as a bull rider at 15, it led to him joining the rodeo team at Three Rivers Community College in Missouri and eventually make his PBR debut in 2015. He has since built quite a following.


"Being able to know that they're there watching me and encouraging me, it gives me that much, you know, that much more to want to win," Hall said.

The event starts Saturday at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster .
