New in 2018, the SCI Foundation Veterans Committee auctioned a sponsorship for a combat veteran to go on a 400-420-inch bull elk hunt. The hunt was donated by Trophy Mountain Ranch, an estate hunting outfitter located near Cowdrey, Colorado. The sponsor (winning bidder of the auction) paid to send Cody Scriver, a nine-year Marine veteran who had participated in more than 100 combat missions in Afghanistan, on the hunt. Cody, his wife, Fawm, and son, Tucker, received two nights lodging and meals and the hunt was filmed by Colorado Buck.
I was up to 29 Capra and wanted to get to 30, so last year booked a hunt with Joe Jakab (Point Blank Hunts) for the hybrid ibex on the Greek Islands.
I was thinking I wouldn’t have to do too much climbing and this would help as I’m getting a little older. The Greek authorities had lost their ranger for that island but said it would be no problem by the time the hunt rolled around in early November. It turned out to be a big problem and the hunt got cancelled a short time before.

It really doesn’t matter how much experience you have (or think you have). Hunting is a learning experience, and unfamiliar situations are just that. You can add conventional wisdom that abounds in our world…and isn’t always all that wise.
