Re: Finally My First Elk!

Thanks guys, my dad was shaking just as bad as i was. One of the guides (the older guy, we are taking the youger guy shooting) said that was the fastest he has ever seen an elk drop. I will see if I can get a pic of her leg, she was standing short leg downhill . I think the best part was the fact that there was a road 200 ft below her, we just drove the atv to her, drug her down to the road, and put her in the trunk of the truck . She stood there for 15 mins while the older guide, his dog moose, and I hauled arse 5 or 6 miles to where my dad, little brother, and youger guide spotted her. We were not seeing any elk and she was standing alone without a care in the world. I think God was looking down on me yesterday and gave me a break .

Re: Finally My First Elk!

Her ivory is really nice, it looks kinda like marble.
