Once-in-a-lifetime hunt becomes reality for Rice, Minn., man
Tyler Turn, Rice, Minn., was excited once he learned he had drawn one of the 44 tags available this year for the elk hunt.
On Sunday morning, Aug. 23, while scouting for elk with his father Rick, brother Tanner, and cousin C.J. Peterson, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity became a reality. The hunt was extra special since they were all together when this big bull elk came out of the woods. The hunt took place north of Lancaster.
The bull elk is a 5-by-6 with velvet on the one side, which will be preserved for the shoulder mount by Bert’s Taxidermy, Greenbush, Minn.
Turn is the son of Rick Turn and Vicki Turn, and grandson of Ardell Larson, Lake Bronson and Kay Turn, Hallock. He is a corporate sales and service manager for Anderson Trucking in St Cloud, Minn.
