My mom, Rita Nelson age 79 shot a 6x6 Bull Elk on Tuesday evening, October 10, 2017 in Lancaster Minnesota, Zone 20. It was my mom's first time applying for an Elk tag and I swear that women has a horseshoe and or lucky charm within her bones. My dad has been gone from lung cancer now for 13 years, who was an avid hunter in his own right, so we feel for sure there is divine intervention when ever we are in the hunting woods!! My mom has harvested the biggest 12 point buck on their hunting to date and last year shot the biggest buck among any of us 8 hunters. I am so proud of my mom and we can't thank enough the farmers in the Lancaster area that helped us recover, gut, skin and load the huge elk, Joe Waupleski, Carl Chrisopherson, Daryll & CJ Peterson.
