My youngest was drawn for a Bighorn Ewe archery hunt. It was a 10 day long season, weekdays only. His hard work and preparation paid off Monday afternoon when he connected with the ewe he was chasing. While he had his choice of ewes, there was a one horned ewe that he was after. During orientation they had told him about the ewe, and asked if he would be interested in taking her as they were hoping to cull her from the herd. He took that as a challenge, and decided to target her. After 4 days of hunting he was finally able to connect. It was a challenging hunt, in a rocky and steep canyon. I can't be prouder of how hard he hunted! We covered a little over 12 miles on Monday, and didn't get out of the canyon till 9:00 pm. He drew on her 5 times before he was able to get the shot off, and when he did he double lunged her. She ran about 100 yards, stood still for a couple of minutes before dying. Here are some pictures from the hunt.
