Boys 1st elk!
« on: October 09, 2017, 05:52:33 PM »
After a case of elk fever and missing a nice 6 point last year at 50yds with his muzzle loader he finally redeemed himself this year. This guy came in on a string this morning and he made a perfect broadside shot at 40yds.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Sweet - that's the good stuff
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
