How physically difficult was the hunt?
Is there anything that the outfitter should do differently in your opinion?
No. The outfitter tailored the hunt to exactly what I wanted.
It finally happened. He came charging in bugling and sent a shiver down my spine. He wasn’t stopping so I buried my 40 yd pin and let the arrow fly. I hit a little high and back but hoped I had caught lung. We waited……. then started tracking and 150 yards later, I laid my hands on an Idaho Bull Elk.
This has been the most physically and mentally challenging hunt I have ever experienced. The terrain is beautiful yet unforgiving. The weather is completely unpredictable and harsh. We walked miles in cold, wet, and sometimes completely frozen boots at elevations ranging from 6500 ft to 9500 ft. At times my mind & body told me to give up but my heart wouldn’t let me. I kept hiking, kept believing, and kept hunting. In the end, I have experienced an adventure that I will remember forever. The days spent in the Idaho mountains are a constant learning experience that I will cherish forever.
