Wow!  Iím glad it worked out for her.    Thank you WDFW for making this happen.   We often pound them for things, but they did right here.   Congratulations young lady.

What am I missing?  What did wdfw do to make this happen?  Sounds like a story there somewhere..........

Terminal cancer. Tough to see for anyone to have to deal with something like that, but this young lady...man it's tough to comprehend being a kid and having to deal with this.

This is some of the story.

Awesome bull..... I will say this for wdfw....they provide a unique opportunity for those that truly deserve it.  My buddy was given a terminal moose tag a few years ago and it made him a happy man even though he was dying.

This will be a hard story for me to tell. Partially because I don't like to write stories, but mainly because how amazing this was.

Started with a call from a buddy that had been contacted about helping with this hunt.  I quickly inserted myself into the crew. We began Friday scouting for her moose hunt that was to begin on Sunday. We called in a few bulls and thought we had located a good bull for her that we would be able to relocate.

Fast forward to Sunday afternoon. We met up with Jayda her dad and the whole posse from Ephrata. Quickly made introductions and hit the range to check the rifle. After that we head to the spot we had scouted. Checked a few cameras and saw we had a few bulls that had been in the night before.  We would hunt them the next morning if not successful this evening. We headed towards the drainage that we had called bulls a few days earlier. Stopped and glasses a few spots on the way with no luck. I kept telling Jayda not to be worried because moose are a better animal to hunt in the morning. Boy was I wrong.

Thanks for sharing, Ben. It's this kind of stuff that puts things into perspective and should keep us grounded. You're a hell of a guy for helping out.

Continuing on we came to the drainage that we had called the bull in on Friday morning.  It was a big drainage where we could also glass the far mountain ridge while we called.  We stopped the trucks and got out to glass and do a little calling series. As soon as I finished the first set of calls a small bull stood up across the drainage. This of course got all the Ephrata boys excited. After calming them down I walked around the corner and called again. Thinking I heard a bull grunt I came back around the corner to get Jayda set up if this bull would commit. I kept calling and now we had 2 Bulls calling and seeming to get closer. Excitement levels are getting pretty high at this point. Probably the loudest moose hunt I have ever been on. 12 guys and a 90 lb girl standing next to two pickups in the road. Not exactly stealthy.

About 10-15 mins of us standing there and saying "did you here that, he's getting closer" one of the Pend Oreille crew yells softly there is a giant bull on the ridge.  After calming down and is asking for what seems like 5 mins he was able to point out where he has seen the bull on the opposite ridge. We can only see one paddle but he was in the sun and it looked huge. At 770 yards you could see him naked eye and know he was the bull that we need to call in and get Jayda a shot at. The bull began to move along the top of the ridge to our right. This story is gonna get confusing but I will to my best.

Realizing that we could not shoot from where we were set up. And with a lot of people whispering and moving. We decided to move forward into the drainage with just Jayda, her father, and a video guy (close family friend) and myself. After looking at a few spots to set up we chose one that we could look across the valley where the road had cut back (approximately 200 yards)and we hoped we could direct the bull to. We continued to call for about 20 mins, only able to hear the bull because he was on the top of the ridge in front of us probably now 500ish yards (left the range finders with the crew). He was now working away from us to the right but we figured he was just working his way down the hill. Bulls are way easier to call when you do not have pressure like this on your shoulders.
