Six-point bull elk bagged by Legionnaire Jake Greeling of Post 341 in Bella Vista, Ark. The hunt took place in the North Park area of northern Colorado near the town of Walden.

On Oct. 6, 2016, at a Soldiers Wish fundraiser in Tulsa, Okla., I bid on and won a 5-day elk hunt with a guide and lodging in northern Colorado. I couldn't go in 2016 because of scheduling conflicts but I did go in October 2017. I have hunted elk many times having lived in Wyoming for a number of years, but this was the most fabulous elk hunt I've ever been on. On the third day of the hunt I was able to bag a six-point bull. The "Cigar Dinner" put on by Resources One in Tulsa was a first-class fundraiser and it generated a lot of money for "Soldiers Wish." What I spent on the bid was well worth it. I had a great time hunting and a large portion of the bid went to Soldiers Wish.
