Michelle Jones - First Elk
This is my 2015 bull elk. He's my first elk - and he's a beauty. His unofficial gross is 330. He will always be special because not only is he my first elk but I shot him 1 week after our son (our first child was born). I got him on our farm ground in Montana. My husband and I were waiting and watching for the elk on our usual "hill." The elk slowly came out from the timber and made their way to the fence they have to cross on to our land. I couldn't believe this elk and two others were actually going to come out before the end of legal light. We hurried the 1/2 mile down the field and fence line until we watched this guy cross the fence and stand broadside at 300 yards. - with 10 minutes to spare before the end of legal light I landed a two perfect shots and he dropped right on the edge of our field. It was a whirlwind hunt -- and so unbelievably memorable.

Good work MommaBeautiful scenery, great elk. It amazes me how impressed people were that Will was a week old.
Fabulous HuntA wonderful hunt and memory to treasure and share with all of us;
and a great story to be able to tell your son when he gets older.
An extraordinary thing to do as a brand new mom.
Hunt to rememberTo be there when you took your first elk. It will be a hunt that will never be forgotten.
