Z7 Success in Idaho

October 3, 2011 by Mike Nygard

I just returned from one of the most the rewarding hunts of my life. It was a public land drop-camp hunt in a fairly remote area of Southeast Idaho. I made the trip from Minnesota with my best buddy and my dad. It was quite a physically demanding hunt for three flat-landers camped at 8600 feet. Day four of the hunt brought success when I connected with this nice 5×5 elk, my very first archery bull. It was text-book spot and stalk. I knew there were elk ahead of me and the wind was in my favor. Moving slowly deliberately with an occasional cow-call, this guy showed himself broadside at 30 yards just long enough for me to draw and release an arrow. It was a complete pass-through heart shot leaving him on the ground only 80 yards from the shot. Thanks Mathews for a great bow. Love my Z7.
