First Elk Bow Hunt
After rifle hunting the giant Roosevelt Elk in the Olympic Peninsula region of Washington State for years, with reasonable success, a friend of mine, a local hunting and fishing guide, suggested that if I would like to hunt with him, I would have to switch to archery.
Dad's First Elk
My Dad and I drew Elk Tags for Wyoming in 2000 and went with an outfitter that was known for great service and quality hunts. My dad and I worked all summer getting shape as we had hunted elk for many years without success and we were not going to let our condition get in the way. On the first day of our hunt Dad was the "1st Choice" shooter. Our guide had us on elk within 20 min and we worked up the draw after them. The big bull in the bunch looked good. Just when we were 200 yards out with only one hill to climb up, another herd of elk came over the ridge and our little herd went up to join them! They bedded down and we took some pictures as we climbed the 2 1/2 miles up the long way! Thank God that we had been doing lots of walking and hiking!
