My dad, my uncle and I came out from Minnesota in 1979 [I was 15]. Never hunted elk before.
We shot 2 5x5s... public land, DIY...

Nope.... 0-4 before I scored...14 of 15 since... my learning curve was a little shallow... I made enough mistakes those first 4 seasons for 3 hunters LOL

I'll let him tell the story if he wants but drthornton killed this nice 5x5 last year on his (and mine) first DIY elk hunt in Wyoming.

Awesome. Success in elk hunting isn't easy no matter how many years you have been doing it. To just come out and get it done is inspiring.

I did not tag out my first season. But, in my defense, I was only twelve.
