2013 – DYLAN EASTMAN, ELIJAH PENROD & HUDSON STEELE
DYLAN EASTMAN’S STORY ~ Just wanted to throw out an update about our recent hunt with Dylan. It was an incredible week in the woods for a very deserving young man. It was so cool to watch the first elk he had ever seen in the wild, a bull we called in to five yards, just make him a rambling, shaking, adrenaline overdosed kid that couldn’t even pull back his bow! Dylan expressed over and over how even after two years of treatments, the hope and anticipation he had for this hunt was exceeded in every way. We hunted very hard and in classic Idaho style faced every weather condition the mountains could throw at us. On the second to the last day of the hunt we were blown away by an awesome 5 point bull that came charging in at 11…no 15….now 25 yards before the arrow finally met its mark. Dylan’s slogan was “3rd time’s a charm”, as his first two attempts to shoot resulted in drawing and accidentally letting down in a crazy, jerky, I don’t even know what’s happening sort of a way. But the third time he drew, with some great callers, a donated Montana decoy from Bugling Bull, and a serious blessing from above, the bull moved into one more shooting lane and the arrow left the string! God blessed us in amazing ways this week, it was such a gift to get to play even a small part in all that took place. I can’t say thank you enough to all of you for your prayers and support. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to surround myself with such committed elk hunters, selfless friends, and dedicated volunteers that made this week a success in every way. Congratulations Dylan, we’re so very proud of you! Thankful, blessed, and still so excited,
