13 weeks 5 days till we are hunting the Goose prairie unit
« on: July 19, 2017, 09:40:08 PM »
As you can till I'm pretty excited and I don't even have the permit.... This is my wife's  first bull tag and If successful it'll be her first elk. Needless to say this is going to be an awesome hunt!! As the hunt gets closer I will Be updating this post with scouting pics and sharing the excitement. She was right by my side when I got my 2015 peaches ridge Bull and I'll be right by her side this entire hunt. Below is her and I with my bull. So 13 weeks and 5 more days to go :chuckle:

Pretty cool going back to back with really good tags!

5 days till she can shoot!! Super excited. Hopefully the hunting gods will bless her. I ordered her up a Harris pivoting bipod last Sunday. It arrived today. Her rifle is ready to sing. Good luck to everyone! Be safe.
