Five days into the hunt this wonderful drop tine appeared 178 yards away. My trusty 7MM dropped him in his tracks.

May 3, 2017, was a beautiful sunny day with a cool breeze. Perfect weather for turkey hunting. I was hunting with fellow members Randall Elzinga and Doug Yff. Only a hour and half into the hunt I was able to take this trophy Tom at 12 yards. It was an awesome hunt with the Tom coming in from over 600 yards away and strutting right in front of us. The bird weighed in at 22 lbs, the beard was 10 1/2 inches long and the spurs were 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 inches long. Thanks for the great calling Randall.

Roosevelts Elk | California | Bow and Arrow

Ed De Young

It was a tough hunt, the rut was over and the bulls were not calling. On the 10th day my guy Tim spotted a huge 7 x 7 elk in a clear-cut. An hour later and a 75 yard shot I had an arrow in the right spot in the pool was mine. Add scores in the top third of Boone and Crockett all time record what a way to finish the super slam 29 animals of North America .
