He got 'er done

It's been a couple of years of hunting hard for my son and he was finally rewarded with a nice cow elk. This is his first elk and he earned it. A tough stalk crawling on our hands and knees for 50 yards and then belly crawling through melting snow and tall grass for another 20 yards. Don't know how, but he managed to get within range right at the end of shooting light and made a fine shot of around 200 yards. Put the first shot through both lungs and then cranked another shot into her liver. She dropped in 10 yards. I couldn't have been more proud of him. It was his last hunt of the year and was a great end to his seasons.
