Josh's Elk Hunt 2014

It was a successful elk hunt for Josh this year.

With all the stress from his job, followed by the new job opportunity, he has been really stressed this year. Luckily, with the job change, he was able to have a week off so he could only have to worry about hunting season.

To add to the stress, last week, his grandpa was life flighted to SLC. He had to have some stints put in immediately and will probably need a followup procedure. He is doing well, but because of it, they won't be able to go on his hunt next weekend. I think grandpa only puts in for hunts so he can have a reason to get the family together. 

I had to go to the city for some other stuff, so on my way home, I decided to stop and see grandpa. As I was pulling into the parking garage, I got the picture from Josh. So the first thing I did when I got to the room was to show grandpa. That made his day. He even had me showing the picture to the nurses. And later, Josh was able to call him and tell him all about it.

Josh didn't have time to go home, get the horses, and get back up the mountain before dark, so he decided to just go back the next morning. He was thrilled when he dad said he would go with him.

Josh has already said, many times, this was one of his funnest hunts ever. And you can see that by the huge grin on his face.
