Immersion means more days in the field, which yields more opportunity to mingle with elk, to learn from the elk, and perhaps to release an arrow. And so I immerse myself in elk. They have me captivated. Every day that I scout, photograph, and hunt elk, I learn something about them and their behavior. One thing learned is one thing gained, and that gaining is how I define success.
On the evening of September 23, all that success sparked against a bit of luck, which sent my arrow flying. And so I harvested a gorgeous Montana archery bull.
