Beaches, Not Brow Tines: Brett French Radio Show Preview
By angelamontana


If it were up to me, no one would schedule any important events in mid-September, the height of the elk rut. But when your niece decides to get married in Hawaii at the same time that you’ve scheduled a week off to archery elk hunt, family obligation takes precedence. There will always be an elk hunt next year. That was the case for me last week as I visited my sister in Oahu for a week to celebrate her daughter’s wedding. I took a fair amount of grief from my hunting buddy for canceling out on our hunt. But I managed to soothe my conscience with sea kayaking, snorkeling, hiking to the top of Diamond Head, swimming in the ocean and my first 18 holes of golf for the year. Turns out there are a lot of options for outdoor activities in the 50th U.S. state. Toward the end of the trip, my hunting partner texted me a photo of him with the bull elk he had shot. That did sting a bit. But sometimes the right choice isn’t always the easy one, or the least expensive.
