"Real Elk Hunting" in Texas

I recently posted some photos of a trip I sponsored to hunt elk in Texas. All five of us were successful and really enjoyed the experience.

Merriam Magic in Nebraska

Merriam Magic in Nebraska! What a great hunt in the wilds of Nebraska.  We killed all mature gobblers but encountered literally 100's of Jakes.  Which means there will be gobblers behind every cedar in our area next year.
