My son, buddy and I went out for the first day of rifle season in the zone we hunt in....buddy and I had cow elk tags and my son, Ben age 13 had a bull tag. Ben shot his first deer last year with the rifle when he was just legal to hunt. He has had chances with the bow but just like his Dad has missed. This year we have been seeing lots but you know the usual...too far, wrong trail, etc. etc.

Yesterday, we went out at first light in behind our camp and walked over to an area where we had seen elk, moose and whitetails. My buddy posted himself over a cutline where he could see a ways and just when we got to him he suddenly motioned to head to the upper field and mouthed word "elk"

We literally ran up this cart trail about a hundred yards up to the upper field which is 80 acres of alfalfa...a hot spot for elk and deer. We no sooner got there when elk appeared at the near corner to our right and started running across the field. Being that I only had a cow tag, I was concentrating on the cows which were bunched up running at a couple hundred yards....I proceeded to miss 4 times with my 7mm Mag at single cows...I had told Ben to take his time as there were some young bulls with the cows and he only could shoot one that had 3 points or better. Iwas busy fumbling for more bullets when this 5 point bull ran out and stopped...I told Ben to take him...BOOM...this bull jumps about 5 feet in the air and runs about 50 yards into the field following the cows and piles up, doing the chicken. A heart shot at 200 yards with his 7mm-08...he has got braggin rights over his Dad, brothers and a whole lot of others.

that smile says it all!!! congrats to him!!
Gun Control - A theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.

I have to post my season so far. A few weeks left for deer and on to bow hunting for small game. 8-) All deer were taken with a 50# RER longbow, cedar arrows, Snuffer 160's and ASAT. This years buck is my best yet and off public land.
