I drew and released but immediately saw my arrow going low. I knew it wasn’t a good hit and when I watched the herd of 35 run off…
We love hearing a good hunting story almost as much as we love hunting ourselves.
Three or four elk hunting seasons ago, I guided Dave Brucken and Dr. Rance Gamblin on an Idaho archery elk hunt. Dave works for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and wrote a story about our little adventure that was later published in their Bugle Magazine. He and I have stayed in touch and he has given me permission to post his story here. Enjoy.
Overall the hunt was amazing, and we would do it again in a heartbeat with the same outfitter. We made some great new friends and a million memories plus filled the freezer.
One of my hardest hunts testing us physically and mentally every day pushing us to are limits. We experienced so many crazy situations that would’ve broke anybody down but with hard work, dedication and support all three of us came out successful!
I hunted Bear, Moufflon and Sheep on this trip and all phases were well organized and a lot of fun. The outfitter had everything in order and our guides knew what they were doing and how they were going to get me on game. The trip was a lot of fun and I’d highly recommend it.
