Terminally Ill Combat Veteran Experiences The Hunt Of A Lifetime – #LIVINGELKCOUNTRY

In From The Field by RMEF23 Comments

This #LivingElkCountry submission comes from Eric Bakken. It chronicles the story of a ALS-stricken combat veteran and a group that wanted to make his dream come true.

“Follow Josh, a terminally ill combat veteran on his journey to test his limits and harvest a bull elk in the Blue mountains of Washington. In 2015 Josh was diagnosed with ALS. This is his dream!”
