My elk hunt actually started back in the 1960s as a six-year-old reading hunting magazines. I remember a photo of a pack train of horses and several of them had elk horns tied to pack saddles. The background was the Rocky Mountains. That magazine cover started my dream of someday venturing into the mountains on an elk hunt and for the next 50 years, that is all it was, a dream. The dream started to become a reality when I booked my wife Sherry and me an elk hunt with Yellowstone Outfitters in Wyoming.
