My son has had one hell of a summer and it just got a lot better. He first off won a free alligator gar bowfishing trip to Texas after winning a photo contest with an albino bighead he shot a couple of years ago. They also took him fishing for bull reds out in the ocean. He then was able to go hammer some big rays out on the east coast with some friends the same week and now just was notified he drew Nebraska's super tag. 1543 applied and he was the winner. He receives a deer tag, (2) turkey tags, an antelope tag and an elk tag. The elk tag he can hunt any unit in Nebraska and all tags are good for two years! It is going to be a fun season!

I know those Welch boys want let that tag go unpunched. Them boys are killers. Can’t wait Hammertime!

Anyone who has ever had the privilege to meet Zak will tell you he is a hell of a man. Raised right by a hell of a man. See you boys soon. Hunt

Awesome, Beav. Looking forward to seeing some pics from those hunts.

That is a heck of a red. Wow!

17-Jul-18
That is awesome! Are there any stipulations on the type of weapons? I ask that because if you draw an Oklahoma elk tag through ODWC, you have to use a gun.

Look forward to the killing to begin. ;)

I'll be in the Pine Ridge area come mid Sept. If I see any big bulls I be sure to get in contact with you guys......but you will probably already have one on the ground by then.

The only way drawing the Supertag could have been any better, would be if they had included a bighorn sheep tag on it!

I never did update on this thread of Zach's success in filling Super Tag with an elk, deer, antelope, and two turkeys. These tags were good for two years. He was the first to fill them all with the bow and also the first to fill them all in the first year.

Plus he managed to fill his other tags! Proud of him and his accomplishment. He will probably never match this season.

Well, let me be the first to offer Congratulations to you, Zach and your proud Dad! You have accomplished, in one season, what many will never accomplish in their lifetime. Great job!

What a sweet deal to get that tag at a time in your life when you can really USE it!! Congrats to him!!! There is no time like those late teens and for some early 20's when you don't have major bills to pay, and almost all your income is discretionary. Your time is yours, glad he was able to make the most of it, and with some beautiful animals to boot! Any two of those whitetails is all most could ask for in a calendar year.

I really enjoyed getting to hear the stories first hand. It couldn't have happened to a nicer young man either. Zach was a all state runner in high school, honor roll student, never in trouble, and did it all with his bow! He will do great things going forward I am sure and he learned most of this despite his father.... :) Congrats young man!
