Current Hunters

  
12 year old Zachary with his first elk with a hunt on the Bord Gulch Ranch won at last years RMEF Mile High Chapter banquet!  I am still amazed at how everything came together.  From spotting the herd far in the distance after glassing all morning; to patiently waiting to see what they’d do; getting after them in the truck and on foot and hiking up the ravine; spotting just the head of an elk popping up over the horizon; sneaking in on them; setting up Zach’s shooting sticks on a steep incline as I’m seeing them start to head over the hill; cow calling and freezing them before the rest of the herd disappeared; seeing only partial bodies of the few remaining elk as they had already started to head back over the hill; hearing Zach talk to himself (“breath, one, two, three”) as he put the reticle on the elk exactly where he and I spoke about and practiced many times if it was facing straight on vs. broadside, vs. turning away; to hearing that BOOM! and seeing the elk “shiver”; searching for a blood trail for quite awhile and not seeing any sign (and starting to wonder how I was going to have to break it to him that it looked like he may have missed); yelling out “here’s some blood!” although it was only a few specks and a miracle that we spotted it; following the blood trail till it seemed to peter out as there really wasn’t much blood to be trailing with I’m thinking maybe Zach just wounded it a bit and it bounded off with the rest of the herd; to thinking to myself, “maybe I should just look around through my binoculars in case I can see something in the sage that looks out of place”; shouting “ELK ON THE GROUND!!!”

What an experience Zach and I will remember and cherish forever and I am so very thankful to the RMEF for being part of it.  I thank our Lord for a successful hunt and He definitely heard our prayers.  What a blessing.
