Age: 16

Years hunting: 4

Guide: Rob Powers, Ken Recker

Weapon used: 270 Winchester

Distance out: 100 yards

Time and date: 11 a.m. Oct. 10

Area: Private, on Mount Werner

Hunt details: "We spent the night in a cabin halfway up the mountain, then woke up around 5 a.m., got dressed and hiked for two hours. We got into a lot of bull elk.

My dad started calling them and Ken tried to get me into a good spot, but they weren't interested in anything. So we kept moving and flushed a big six-by-six.

He got away and we were following him when we heard a huge crash behind us. My dad told me to get in a ditch and I shot with one leg on top of the ditch and one on the side. It was the most awkard shot."
