Wilbar... this is rather late but what an awesome story, Thanks!
I thought from the start of your story that both daughters drew tags.
Was this not so?

Hi Larry,

Takes me a long time to notice stuff ;-)

Yes, both daughters had tags. The older one was having shoulder problems and got recoil shy. With the distance she would have to shoot and her hesitation to pull the trigger I simply asked at the beginning of the hunt if she wanted to shoot an elk. When she didn't reply immediately that she wanted to I decided not to push her and risk wounding an animal.

She hiked with us and carried a rifle, even packed out meat and gear. I hope she gets back onto big game in the future but she still comes out hunting with me every year and she enjoys taking small game with the 22.


Lord help me to pass up the shots I should not take, to make the shots I should, and give me the wisdom to know the difference.
