    Here is an update. On December 28 (1day after his 10th birthday) Adrian harvested his second elk. This was a big cow he was able to take thanks to oregons mentoring program again. This elk was taken at 465 yards with a single shot from the same 7rem mag he used in january. I had time over the summer to change from the marginal for elk 162gr A-max to the 168gr berger vld. It was a cold hunt and he was a real trooper. At the time of the shot the temp was 6 below zero. We had to pack it out about 1.75 miles to the truck dropping just over 2000' elevation. It was an awesome hunt and thanks for reading the short recap I wrote.

    Congrads to both of you, nice job. I too am from Oregon and got to participate in the mentor program with my Grandson (9). He got his first buck, forked horn at 200 yards. Great program and a lot of fun to see the expression on their faces when all goes right. Again congrads.
