Youth cow elk success!

Recommended Posts

The last week has been a whirlwind of activity around here. Picked up my Colorado grandsons last Wednesday at the Prescott airport, neat place. You go back in time there! Wednesday was Trevors 12 th birthday, so for the next 2 weeks he’s the same age as his brother!

Both boys felt comfortable so it was off to scout a bit. 

We had 4 juniors in our group, Friday morning Cliff’s jr., Brooke 15, got her cow before the sun hit the ground! The rest of the group struck out on the morning hunt. That afternoon Dusty’s grandson,Jake, tagged out chasing bugles.

Saturday morning Zach missed a shot , and Trevor got to see a couple of groups spook after winding us. Saturday afternoon Zach got his at 225yds and Trevor missed one at 200yds. Now we got three down and Trevor is the lone tag holder.

Sunday morning bulls were going crazy when we got out of the truck, after a half hour of keeping the wind right and enough cover to hide us, Trevor put one down at 200 yds! 
First elk for all four kids! Couldn’t have been better!

Gotta love those youth hunts.  Both my kids 14 and 11 tagged out by Saturday with their first elk.  They both put in eight to ten miles walking but got to see a lot of cool country without roads and other hunters.  Great hunt!
