John's archery trip to Paonia this weekend yielded one of the biggest elks we have ever seen. He is elated, to say the least! With its large, unique rack, this one might make the record books. It's not easy to come across an animal of this size, let alone get a good shot at it with a bow. Luckily, he had lots of help from the folks he hunted with to get this elk home. He bought a freezer today and we're considering having a huge elk chili event as well as sharing meat with everyone we know. See the rest of his pictures, including awesome scenery of the Ragged Mountains and John catching some rare species of trout at our web photo album. John has enjoyed successes on some of his previous deer and antelope hunts, but this is his first elk and with its size, a momentous occasion.
