Life Member Elk Hunt

These guys were told to bring warm clothes, a weapon and above all, their hunting legs.

Why would someone get up at 3:30 in the morning, get on a horse for an hour in the cold wind, and then start hiking in the snow? That's easy - elk. The physical rigors of elk hunting are so rewarding that the North American Hunting Club hosted a dozen life members on a trip to Colorado, and they couldn't wait.

Doug McDougal is testing his hunting legs with this hearty bunch courtesy of Winterhawk Outfitters, and he clearly came prepared.
