When I think of Alaska, elk hunting has never been the first thing to pop into my head. Moose sure, caribou definitely, Dall sheep of course…but elk?

I had no idea they had rosies in AK. That's awesome! I love chasing them in the north Cascades and would agree on how big they can get. What a wonderful trip, thanks for sharing the story with us to celebrate success with you. =)
You mentioned there are two options for tags: a draw and otc. I thought the otc option was lost rut, but in your story it sounded like you were there for the rut. Did you and your brother each get drawn for a tag?!
