Daughters first elk
« on: November 11, 2014, 10:05:33 AM »
I couldn't be more proud of my daughter.  She has killed two bucks the last couple years ,and Sunday she got her first elk. I get more excited these days watching my daughter harvest an animal than when I get one myself :chuckle: She is blossoming into quite the hunter. She's going to try out her new bow she got for her birthday next year with me. Hopefully she gets her first bull with it .

Congrats to both of you! Great looking elk, I know what you mean about being more excited for the kids. I think I was more exxcited for my daughter this year then I have ever been for one of mine. Thanks for sharing.

Good stuff right there!  Proud dad, I am always more proud of my kids than my own success.
