I was at my parents the other day and came across this picture. My first big game kill, I was 13. Hawkins 54 caliber muzzleloader November general season elk hunt 1994. It makes me smile. No range finders, no kuiu or sitka, no fancy optics, no gps, no OnX, no cell phone, no Crispi, zamberlan or kenetrek, no etc..... Looking back there was a ton of luck on my part, a lot of hard work for my dad, and no small miracle that I got an elk on that hunt.
