Elk Down!

This was the email, text, and first exclamation that I heard from Brent last weekend. He is super excited about getting his first Elk, so I thought I would post the pics and and have Brent explain the events that took place.

From Brent: I got the shot off about 8:00 am Friday morning after walking out a ridge for less than 30 minutes, we stopped at the edge of a meadow to take some jackets off and the next time we looked down the meadow my spike had stepped out from behind a small fir tree at about 100 yards. We threw a couple cow calls in his direction and he responded by trotting, not walking, right to us. He fell victim to a G5 montec at 54 yards. After waiting an hour we trailed him 200 yards or so to his final resting place. We found him and were done with pictures at about 9:30 and him quartered and all back to the truck before 1:00.

Warning: dont look at these pictures if you get queasy or upset at dead animals. Thanks!
