We started out with my Guide Ken Owens putting the first elk on the ground. Kens hunter Lauren had traveled 18 hours from his home town in Virginia. On day two Laurens PSE bow hit the mark.
Great job Ken and Lauren.
I was next up in unit 3A-3C. I was hunting with Glen. He had made the drive from L.A. to hunt with us. Glen had been on 8 elk hunts prior and had shot one arrow with no success. I made Glen pass on lots of elk prior to this bull making an appearance at 28 yards. Glen made a perfect shot and the elk never left our sight.
After Glen had killed I went over to help a good friend that had the 3A-3C archery tag also. Two days into helping Russell connected with this awesome elk.
In unit 1 my guide Phillip and his hunter Wayne connected on this awesome bull with a 8 inch kicker on the left side to go with the additional 7 points per side the bull already had made for an excellent trophy. They had hunted numerous days and passed on over 30 bulls before putting the scope on this big old bull.
Then with one day before the hunt started good friend Dwayne and his son Zack videoed this awesome bull. We tried but never could seem to be in the right place to harvest this bull, matbe next year.
Next we go over to unit 4b and guide Ken on day three brought down this beautiful bull with a long 50 yard shot. This AZ bull is now back in the great state of Georgia.
A huge thanks goes out to all my guides for making Koury Guide Service what it is today. I could not do it without them. And a HUGE congrats goes out to all my hunters....
