Derek Mahlum recently sent us a story about his nephew, Kane Mahlum, as this was Kane’s first year hunting as an apprentice. We absolutely love reading stories like this, and we thank Derek for sharing. A huge congratulations to Kane for his awesome hunting success! Also, thank you, Derek, for loving the Montana Outdoor Radio Show!
Here’s what happened in Derek’s words:
This was his first year hunting as an apprentice. He hiked his butt off up and down the badlands of eastern Montana. On Saturday morning I harvested a nice buck and he helped haul it about 3/4 of a mile out of the step badlands.
Once back to the truck, we headed out to scope more country. We came across the buck he harvested, and he acted like a seasoned hunter. As the buck was moving away another smaller buck was trying to move in on the pack of four. This buck turned to run the other smaller buck off. He then hesitated a moment before going over a small rise.
My nephew then harvested him with one shot at 256 yards. After he jumped with excitement, giving his dad and I a big hug, he jokingly told us he had saved the smaller buck’s life. The best part of the story is when the younger brother and two younger cousins (6, 6, and 4) all hiked into the badlands to check out his first deer. Not to mention, it was 20 degrees with blowing snow.
After posing for a photo, Kane, his dad and I hauled the deer back to the truck. It was a great story and picture I would like to share with you about the importance of including our youngsters in the process. Love your program.
