I couldn’t have asked for anything better from my first elk hunt! I killed my bull on the fourth day. It was the most intense hunt I’ve ever had.
This was was my first Western hunt ever and I didn’t know what to expect. I could not have been happier. Russ and I have developed a solid client / provider relationship in the short time we’ve ok now each other through the phone. Hope to meet and hunt with him someday!
