After nine years of walking up, down, sideways and through some of the toughest country anywhere somebody was smiling on me this year. On the first day of this years hunt, we called in this 6 X 6 bull from around a thousand yards away.
Everything finally went right and at 9:01 am (three hours into the hunt) I finally had the chance to take this beautiful animal with an 18 yard shot from the new Mathews Legacy my wonderful wife bought me for Valentines Day! Knowing it had the accuracy sure made this elk hunter a little calmer when this fellow chuckled in his ear!
Thank you Brenda and thank you Mathews!
