Editor's Note: As part of his quest for a North American Archery Elk Slam, subscriber Mac Plymale scored on a dandy Roosevelt bull while hunting the early season on Vancouver Island, British Columbia with Sean Lingl's Canadian Guide Outfitters (250-230-4868; www.canadianguideoutfitters.com).
Lingl first came to Plymale's attention in the pages of The Hunting Report (see Lance Stapleton's July 2007 report on Roosevelt elk, Article 1914 in our database). When Stapleton followed up on Lingl in 2011 (Article 2634) and 2012 (Article 2802), Plymale drew down on a hunt. In the interim, we've also had two subscriber reports on black bear hunts with Lingl, see reports 9153 and 8241.
In an email sent right after his elk hunt ended, and a follow-up after arriving home, Plymale gave us the details on his hunt. Enjoy!
Sometimes a plan comes together, and it all works out just the way you had hoped....
