In another recently released episode of Fresh Tracks with Randy Newberg, a hunter overcomes cancer then takes on the mountains of Wyoming for what was ultimately a successful elk hunt.
From Randy Newberg:
“Llama rancher Beau has used hunting for elk as motivation to become healthier as he was diagnosed with cancer. After defeating cancer, Beau goes elk hunting to find a massive bull elk on what turns out to be much more than your standard elk hunt. In this episode of Fresh Tracks, Beau Baty of Wilderness Ridge Trail Llamas is headed to the public lands of Wyoming to chase elk. Beau has always hunted over-the-counter tags, this is his first limited opportunity hunt.
This hunt is about a lot more than chasing big bulls, as Beau was diagnosed with cancer early that year. While he thought about turning the tag back in, he chose to keep it as something to hold on to and work towards to get healthy.
Having been cleared and deemed cancer-free, Beau packs up the llamas and makes his way to his unit. Having no time to scout, he is going in blind but has a plan to cover country and glass until he locates a herd to focus in on. With any luck, he will be able to find a mature bull to harvest and bring home to his family.”
