Nice job on the hunt! Pretty cool to stick an elk on your first trip out in 7 years. I liked the self portrait too. I've tried do self portraits before and they always turn out pretty bad. Have a great deer season too.
And thanks for your service too. I really appreciate your sacrifices to protect my freedoms.
Well, I just have to say...I feel like I've really been blessed this year. I shot my first archery bull elk and my first rifle bull elk this year! Both 5 points! I'm a real believer in the BDC from Nikon and premium bullets. It went through his front shoulder and down through the entire body cavity at 575 yards!
There's no doubt that a quality photo from a hunt or a special harvest we have made adds immensely to the memories of that hunt that we take from that day forward. Having a picture framed sitting on our desk at work, mantel at home or stuck on a dresser in our bedroom can take us back to that special time and place in an instant and that's something very special. Some hunters enjoy a mount hanging on a wall, and all the memories it keeps inside it's furry or feathered exterior. Some don't...
