First Time Hunter Takes 350+ Nebraska Bull
While Nebraska is not known for a large elk population, it does have a small quality elk hunt for those that are lucky enough to be drawn. For Becky McFarlane Nebraska's elk hunting proved to be the perfect location for her first elk hunt.
The Sioux City Journal has a good write up about Becky and the hunt. According to the article "I've been applying for a Nebraska elk permit for 13 years," Brian [Becky's husband] said. "Becky entered and won the first year." Becky was diagnosed with ovarian cancer just before the hunt. She began chemo therapy on Sept 24 and had just finished her third round of chemo. Her first radiation treatment was Oct. 1.
She's looking forward to a hunting trip in Africa later this year. Brian's old college roommate has a safari business in South Africa. Brian has been there four times and Becky twice.
While there is only one photo of the bull, it appears it could have been in the 370+ range if one of the eyeguards had not been broken.
