    i originally called the ADA manager at the Washington state fish and wildlife to ask about my dad getting a special use permit for a crossbow during archery season because he can no longer pull his bow back.

    She informed me that he would qualify for the terminally ill or “end of life” permit. Basically got to choose whatever and whenever he wanted to hunt and they would approve it if the area biologist agreed that the location can support the tag.

    He choose a branched antler bull permit for the area my family has been hunting for 30 years. This unit is typically spike bull only.

    Walking to get in shooting range.

    While my dad and brother where walking down the canyon to get into shooting range they ran into another hunter who was archery hunting spike elk. He showed this picture to my dad that he took of the elk the day before my dad shot it. Once the guy showed this picture to my dad he was determined to make this the bull he was taking home.

    He shot it about 1 hour later. The other hunter on the canyon helped us packout the meat for two days. I think we’ve made a new friend. :)
