In 2023, they drew once-in-a-lifetime licenses and in recent days, each of them shot a bull. Przekwas’ elk was nontypical with 10-by-11 antlers and Peterson’s elk had a 7-by-7 rack. Both created a memory that’ll last a lifetime. 
“I was in disbelief the whole time,” Przekwas said. “I don’t know how many prayers I’ve said, but I’m so grateful for (the opportunity).”
