As he worked down the ridge to the right he finally turned downhill towards us and we started to get glimpses of him again through the brush on the side hill. Not wanting him to go further down hill I moved way to the left of Jayda and began to call the bull. He must have read the script because he hit the road and began to work directly toward the spot directly across from us that we had set up for. He needed to work about 200 yards along the road on the opposite side hill and he would be perfect for the shot. Still wanting him to move to the left and not down in the ravine, I told Jayda and her dad that I was going to go to where the road cuts back and call him across the hill and call, but that if he got to the spot we had talked about to shoot him even if I was not back to them. But inside I was hoping to be back to witness the finale of the hunt.

YES keep typing:)
Founders for militia definition: ..[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.Ē The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788. No founder is on record arguing with this definition - many support it. Then there's Patrick Henry: "I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people.

I walked up the road to where the road cuts back, beating a lot of brush with my paddle and grunting a lot. One final cow call from the corner and I knew he was committed to coming. I beat feet back to Jayda just in time to watch the bull come out from the brush across the draw. He needed to go about 10 more yards and we would be golden. I can hear Josh (Jayda's dad) talking her through the shot. She is seated in a nice fold out chair with a sturdy tripod shooting stick in front of her. After watching her shoot earlier in the day I was not worried about her marksmanship. The bull began to move and I told her I would stop him as soon as he cleared the brush. The bull stepped out and stepped on his own and she made a perfect shot. The bull humped up and stood his ground.

Jayda reloaded like a pro and put 3 more rounds all within 6" of each other right in the boiler room. The bull soon tipped over and then the excitement and emotion took over. We could hear the whole crew cheering. The bull had stopped in the only gap on the hill where they got to see the whole thing.  Again I am not an emotional guy as many of you know but this has been the best hunting and one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I feel like Jayda family. She will never read this but I love her and think she is an awesome young woman. 

Lots of pics and video to get through only cell phone pics today, but I will get more pics and video soon.  This young lady is proud of her bull and wants everyone to see her bull.

Thank you very much for sharing, I have a young daughter and this story has brought tears to my eyes.  Everyone needs to send a prayer for this young lady, I asked God to spare one miracle for her. I will be sending wdfw an email in appreciation for doing this.

Ben.... you are an amazing hunter, community builder and moose whisperer.  I'm lucky to have got to meet you in person and see your passion for hunting first hand.  That girl has had a rough hand dealt to her but in the final moments she's got to take you on an adventure of a lifetime.  Great work pal.  That bull is a brute and the type of animal that grown men dream of.... I'd be tickled if that girl gets the record.
