First Elk hunt..... awesome experience....

I have always wanted to go to Montana, stay in a wall tent and do the hard core hunt. I just got back from trail creek lodge, awesome experience even if I can back with all my arrows clean. What a difference from hunting elk in Montana with a bow, to sitting out this AM in PA. Here are just a few of the pics. We had multiple encounters, just not close enough, or clean enough shot with the bow. If it was rifle season, would have a pic holding a huge bull. But that is the way it goes......















If you ever wanted to do a true hunt and challenge yourself, check out trail creek lodge in Montana. The price will not knock you over either.

Wish the old body and the wallet would let me do one more elk trip out West. You have some great photos and memories that will last forever.

Re: First Elk hunt..... awesome experience....

Once you get elk hunting in your blood it is about all you think of. Nothing like September elk in the rocky mountains. As you say sitting in a PA treestand pales in comparison. Bet you can't wait to get back. I know I can't.

That has always been a dream hunt of mine as well. I'm so glad you did it and the pictures are great!

The horizon is your starting point.

I LOVE hunting out west. Especially with a bow. Thanks for sharing your story and the pics. All hunts out there are a success.......even if you don't score. The experience and scenery are worth the journey.
