Getting worried, not sure where to go next, we talked and decided to walk back into a clearing where we had seen an occasional elk over the last month.
Hiked back in 4 hours early to sit and see what would happen. Sure enough just before dark, here he came over the ridge. With daylight running out, trying to hurry, we had to move 3 times to get an open shot. Finally got set 300 yards, (300 win mag, 180 gr) and she said I'm ready... Boom! She laced him right behind the front shoulder. He turned and dropped! We were hugging, crying, yelling, unbelievable! One of the best parts was her parents were a mile behind us and her brother about a mile to the left, and they saw the whole thing play out in their spotting scopes! They were watching the bull hoping we could see him. They heard the shot, and saw him drop. Myself, Jenny, and her brother, Brian, walked up to him together and were just blown away! We knew he was decent, but had no idea he was that big!! Brian measured him 4 times, came up with unofficial 385 to 390!!!, with a nice whale tale! Perfect storm, right place, right time... What an adventure, one we all will never forget!"
