A 10 year old girl's 1st Bull Elk
by Trish Smith
Emily's Trophy Elk
For the last two years my husband has entered himself and our two daughters into the Kentucky Elk lottery drawing. The most recent entries yielded a "golden ticket" for our ten year old daughter, Emily Smith. She was able to set her sights on a bull elk for this season's hunt. On October 7, 2012, her second day of hunting, Emily caught a bull elk in the cross hairs of her rifle. With her father by her side, she patiently waited for the perfect broadside shot and with a slight pull of the trigger she dropped a 6 x 6 trophy bull elk. Emily will forever remember this special hunt with her father.
