Over the last 25 years Betty Capaul has harvested 3 trophy bucks, and last year she got a cow elk. One thing she had not harvested that was on her list, was a bull elk. Despite having a bad knee, and needing replacement surgery Betty was determined to be out hunting this season.
Knowing that some people weren't seeing anything, Betty was a little doubtful for her season. Betty and husband Ray go on an annual hunting camping trip and they spend a couple weeks out camping, drinking, talking and enjoying the outdoors. Early on in their trip their grandson successfully harvested a bull elk, and Betty was a little sad thinking there went her bull elk on this trip.
They were down to their final days of hunting. Betty was perched on a log on the hillside. She heard the elk coming before she saw him. She took her time, to make sure it was not a moose and not a cow elk. When the bull elk fully presented himself she was sure. From 80 yards she pulled the trigger on her Remington 308 and filled her bull elk tag. The meat is in their meat locker, and her husband Ray is preparing the rack for display. From CDAPress.com .
