Elk hunting with friends and family.
My youngest son and I found this buck bedded at daylight. A doe happened to be near and gave us a clue to his location. A careful stalk and Beau dropped him at 280 yds.
First big buck I have never got anything wider than 18" and that was a whitetail. this is what makes it all worth while when it finally comes together
After laying down in the wet grass getting snowed on for 2 hours found this nice elk. The teeth chattering paid off (cold)
I put my daughter in for the early Diamond Creek elk hunt. She was lucky enough to draw this awesome tag. I already bow hunt this area, so I was able to scout for her while I hunted. Opening weekend was horrible weather. We hiked a ton and stuck it out through the rain and snow. I couldn't take her out of school for the whole hunt. We hunted the first three days and we're able to get close a couple times to some elk in some thick cover. She never was able to get a shot. We decided to go home and come back early the next weekend.
