J & J Pro Membership Elk Hunt

By Eric Christensen The story starts well before daylight, getting all the gear ready, double checking to ensure nothing has been forgotten. Then you climb into your Yamaha Viking and head down a two-track road into the darkness. Soon you get out of the ATV and listen.
