Here's Trey & I as I root through a pack looking for a knife, I want him to help out!
I'm very excited to be hunting with my grandson this year, it will be his first year archery elk hunting! Wow, all I can say & think is Wow, I'm so damn excited!

Trey (my grandson) is a trooper, he'll do his best & I hope his Dad & I can come through for him, we just want to make sure he has an opportunity plus have a great time & enjoy what an elk hunt is all about when it's Him who's holding the bow!

He's been on two archery hunts with his Dad & I & both times his Dad arrowed a bull while standing inches from his Dad! So cool!

Trey was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 2 years ago so hasn't been able to hunt with us until this year. He's been practicing up a storm with mostly his Dad, I've been there on a couple of practices & he's shooting great out to 40 yards. He shoots a Hoyt at 45# with a 400 grain arrow tipped with an Iron will broadhead, he's well equipped!

For Paul Jr & I this his time & his hunt, we will bust our butts for him to have a good time & have his chances on an Idaho OTC elk hunt!

Our hunt starts Aug 30th, that's this Sunday! I'm heading out that way Wednesday to help get base camp set up & do a bit more scouting as we await the opener! Please wish him luck!

Paul ,my grandson rj is a type 1 diabetic. His picture is in the pronghorn success, his first bowhunt for anything but white tails. You don’t have to tell me what a trooper your grandson is and I’m rooting for him more than you know.

Paul, enjoy every minute of your time with your grandson, time flies by, you are going to blink and he'll be in his 20's.

Agree with others, he couldn't have a better teaching duo than you and your son. Hopefully you get his kill shot and facial expressions on film to share with us.

My Grand-kids are 16 & 19 and live out of state so my wife and I don't get to see them very often. Bob

Paul - no better hunting than hunting with family. 3 generations, that’s awesome family time right there. I’m experiencing that 3 generation hunting thing now - although I’m not the old guy :-) ....... yet

Good hunting to you and I look forward to your story.

I know the feeling. Son, Daughter & 2 G-sons to share my love of Bowhunting & 4 other family members involved in archery. It just gets better.

Good luck Trey! Whether he's successful or not, the memories are unbeatable. But you already know that ;)

As a compete aside; as much as we want to be there while our kids/grandkids succeed, let's never underestimate the joy they have of being there and watching us succeed. They love us just like we love them. Those memories Trey has of watching his dad get an elk are already super amazing. You guys can do no wrong! Great work gramps!

Congrats to Dad and Grandpa for getting Trey to this point. Trey, good luck to you- I hope you have a blast and I hope you can appreciate how special it is to hunt elk with your dad and grandpa. It's a blessing for you and I hope you enjoy it. Get lots of pictures with all three of you in them- dead elk or not!

Also, Trey, I have type I diabetes too. Hunting elk with it is a pain. Heck, life with it is a pain! But, it's manageable. I find I need less insulin while I'm on the mountain. I cut back my nightly dose (about half) and I take less with each meal. But, I'm coming from a lot lower elevation, and the elevation change is a big reason for the insulin change (not to mention essentially working out for 10 hours/day). You'll have less elevation change than me, so maybe you won't need to change much. I'm sure you guys are taking the appropriate precautions (I recommend a glucagon pen, even if you don't normally carry one). Most importantly, try your best to kill an elk, but don't get too fixed on just that and be sure you enjoy your time with family on the mountain. Have fun!

Good luck to Trey and the Paul's! When my 18 month old grandson becomes of age, I hope to pass on the torch also. ( I would love to cook a tenderloin from his first elk over an open fire) Take care and have fun Elknut!
