Re: Dad\'s first elk

Great post and hunt Shawn. Like a few others here, if my pop was still around I am sure he would appreciate the read and the fine shooting.

Thanks for sharing...

Re: Dad\'s first elk

Shawn,

Congratulations to both your dad and yourself.
That 300 gr SMK left an impressive exit wound in that bull.
Good job to the both of you and I hope you can share more father/son stories.

Re: Dad\'s first elk

Great story with a great ending. Congrats to you and your dad. How much does it cost to get good friends to help pack out elk, up hill? They must be real good friends!

Great job!

Re: Dad\'s first elk

They are good friends and they just jumped right in to help. Considering the pack was about 900-1000 yards and it took an hour and a half I thought it was quite a gesture. Packs like that can just about wipe one guy by himself out.

Re: Dad\'s first elk

Shawn,
I'm glad for you that you did that for your dad, the day will come that it will have a greater value to either one. Please give your dad my respects and congratulations.
Great Shot!

Shawn

That was a great hunt and being about your Dad's age, the thing I miss the most while out here in Idaho is my family. It is great that you can take the time to have a good time with your Dad.

Maybe next time I come to town I will post up a funny picture I took. I am sure you will recognize the muzzle brake.
