Here's where it all started.
In January we booked a buffalo hunt with Chuck Vessels. He shot a big trophy buffalo. He said then that he was going to have a buffalo coat made. And he did!
It weighs 25 pounds and I think it's absolutely gorgeous!
Now he's back with his 14 year old son Hugh, and they're here to hunt bull elk.
Chuck is an awesome shooter and took this big 6X6 bull with his .308 MSR.
A pretty bull in a pretty place, Tarbone Ranch. Hugh was happy to share the hunt with his dad.Then it was Hugh's turn. This big old bull presented a long, difficult shot. Hugh made his dad proud with a one shot kill.
Father and son hunters with father and son "guides". Thanks to Hunter for his help.Not sure who is happier. But Hugh has a bigger grin.Hugh relaxing after a hard day's hunt.
Chuck is a retired sniper marksman and showed Hunter and Ken some tricks of the shooting trade. It was awesome.
He let us try out several really tricked out firearms.
Including the very special double barrel 1911.
He even had a semi-auto .50 BMG.
We burned through a LOT of ammo.
Marti got in on the fun. She is a natural markswoman.

Family friends forever.

This is the bull that Hugh is taking back to Alabama. Both are in a good place.
