Elk hunt offers more than retirement trip

Email

GRYGLA -- Curt Howe had banked on two elk hunts this fall, stashing money away every paycheck for the past three years to finance a guided trip to Alberta in mid-September and buying a license to join a cousin in Oregon on a November hunting excursion.

But he hadn't planned on a third hunt just an hour's drive from home.

That all changed in mid-August, when Howe, of Thief River Falls, got a call from his stepson, Travis Mathson, while on a fishing trip to Lake of the Woods.
