Eighth Grader Gets 7 x 7 Elk


Elk_5 Excuse the news headline, but I wanted to make sure everyone had seen this (some of you probably have already). A 13-year-old named Cheyenne Moore from Kalispell, Montana got a very impressive bull at the end of November, according to a recent Associated Press Story . She was one of 200 people out of more than 1,800 applicants to draw a permit (Her father, Mike, had been trying for one since before she was born, and has still been unsuccessful!).
     The linked story has a lot of details about the hunt. Cheyenne apparently passed up a 6 x 6 before getting this bull with her .280. She's still waiting for the B&C score, and, of course, her and her dad have high hopes for it.
     A Montana elk is quite an accomplishment for such a young person -- and the patience to pass up a perfectly nice bull impressed me as well. Not a bad story to keep us all inspired! -K.H.

Congratulations to that Young Lady!!

That is one Big Bull Elk, and for her to pass on a smaller one to get to this one shows great patience. WTG Cheyenne, keep up the good hunting!!

Wilma Heinowski

Isn't that great!!! A memory that she will take with her the rest of her life.


Not to be too picky......but what is a .208 and a B&S score?

Do you think it might have been a .280 and B&C score????

Anyways it's an outstanding animal.

Tom, I can't believe you've never heard of the Boone and Srockett Club or shot a .208 -- you haven't lived!

Anyway, you got me! That's what I get for doing 5 things at once on too little sleep -- the dyslexia starts to kick in!

It's all fixed now, so no worries.
Thanks for catching my mistake! -K.H.
