Night Hawk Stories... Entry 27
Taking a Monster Elk
EDITOR'S NOTE: Tim Hooey, the host of "North American Fish and Game Outdoor Magazine," has hunted avidly since childhood. One of the lucky ones, he's turned his love for hunting into a 10-year career. His show runs in syndication in several cities and the Outdoor Channel runs his show on cable on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
In September 2000, Tim Hooey took a monster elk with his bow in New Mexico. Viewers will have the opportunity to see the hunt on the next season of Hooey's show. This week, he gives visitors to Mossy Oak's website the inside scoop on how he took this elk.
Tim, why did you decide to go on this hunt?
Abe has killed more than 350 elk in his 58 years. With his calls, he sounds more like an elk than an elk does. For anyone who's looking for elk calls, Abe's are the best. He has a special patented design and mouthpiece, and the sounds they give are very natural.
Where did you go in New Mexico, and who outfitted you?
