Bo Pickett, the nephew of two-time world champion Dee Pickett, warms up before the Caldwell Night Rodeo on Thursday. Bo said nobody cares who you’re related to in rodeo competition, but it’s still a privilege to get advice from a Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer. “He gives me someone to look up to and someone to work toward,” Bo said. “He was in my family. He grew up the same way I did, or harder probably, but it kind of gives me someone to strive for.”
