A pouring rainstorm, a big bull elk and a hunt to always remember. That pretty much sums up 2019 for 14-year-old Jackson States.
His father entered both himself and his son in Idaho’s Super Hunt but Jackson got drawn, who parlayed that good luck into a full freezer.
“It was special for me because (other than the moose hunt) I hadn’t been successful for a couple of years. I had been elk hunting once before, and otherwise had hunted for deer. I had never heard an elk bugle before. It was really just a lot of stuff that I’d never had in my hunting experience, and it was really cool to be there with my dad, my uncle, and my dad’s friend,” Jackson said.
