Fun Bow Hunting Stories

´╗┐Fun Bow Hunting Stories

A man and his friend were bow hunting elk in the Colorado mountains near Stoner Colorado. They rode their horse’s from early morning until late evening. The high mountain terrain was very rough with tree’s blown down and large boulders in the path. Their horse’s had to step very carefully or chance breaking a leg. With no sign of any elk the man told his friend that the elk must have all moved to the lower country. They decided to go down and try again the next day. The next morning the man and his friend decided to hunt closer to the town of Dolores Colorado.

They hunted most of the morning with no luck, the sky was clear and it was a beautiful day. As they got closer to the black top highway they saw a herd of cow elk. In the middle of the herd was the biggest bull elk you ever saw. The hunter got down off of his horse and carefully drew his bow and took careful aim. Before he could release his arrow, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing on the highway below their stand.

The hunter slowly let off the pressure on his bow, took off his hat, bowed his head and closed his eyes in prayer. His friend was amazed. “”Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are the kindest man I know.”” The hunter shrugged. “”Yeah, well, I was married to her for 25 years.””
