Helped a friend

Postby phutch30 » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:54 am

Helped a friend take her first elk. She was pretty stoked.
This hunt had it all, scouting, hiking, spot and stalk, and even got to call this bull in. She topped it off by making 2 great shots at 258 yards. Really only needed one as it was dead on its feet, but what the heck, put another in the boiler room for good measure. We were 4 miles in so thank good for good friends with horses. Too old to pack that far nowadays

Hmmmm how to answer this. If we are using the term "happy ending" as ptroofer does for his trips to relieve stress @ Tokyo Sauna, then no one had a "happy ending" I also doubt the elk enjoyed it much. I however, sure had a great day. Seeing someone take their first elk is a rush.
