We first met Jaime on a Sonora Coues deer hunt in 2018. It had been a few years since he’d last hunted. That Coues deer trip was the start of our friendship, and we all knew he was one of the group right away. While we were sitting atop a hill looking for deer, he got a call congratulating him on winning a California Tule elk hunt in a charity raffle he’d participated in.
The next step was working out the details.
But then Covid came along and shut the world down. Including the game ranch he was to hunt.
As we emerged from Covid, the hunt was scheduled. So in August 2021 we met up with Jaime in Paso Robles and made our way to the ranch.
Tuleeee is the result.
