Flooded

In 2013 Chase drew a coveted NM archery elk tag. The season experienced abnormally high rains that flooded the rivers and roads. On the third day of the hunt, we were able to call in a great 6 point bull, only to lose him after the shot. We found him again the next day, feeding and rutting his harem. After a few more days, a few passes on different bulls, and a few additional close calls, Chase was finally able to put the final arrow in this magnificent animal. The hunt was flooded with both rain and emotion, with super high highs, and the super low lows that come from wounding an animal that you love and respect. The video is a testament to the power of the will to live, and the determination it sometimes takes to fill a tag.
