Cam Hanes steps in to help out fellow Under Armour athlete Eva Shockey.
Those following Eva Shockey might know she was recently in Oregon on a Roosevelt Elk hunt. Roosevelt Elk are the largest of the four species of North American elk by body mass, though their antlers tend to be smaller than their Rocky Mountain relatives.
Shockey had been in the woods for a few days before the right opportunity presented itself for a nice mature bull. After making a well-placed shot, she did the only logical thing to do when hunting elk in Oregon. She called the hometown boy, Cam Hanes, to come help you pack it out.
@evashockey got it done today! #backstrap #ieatelk #bulldown #oregon
Cam, whose love for hunting elk in his home state is hardly a secret, jumped at the opportunity. He posted on social media that he received the call from Shockey while at work. He quickly decided to take the rest of the day off to help his friend out.
About to start the hike out with my elk and this epic elk hunting crew!!!!! My favorite part of the entire hunt was packing out in the pitch black, down and up a mountain, through prickle bushes and down mud slides. I couldn’t have asked for a better week! Thanks to @leupoldoptics @rizalesser @standingbuckproductions @dangersoup and @jodysmithguideservice for an awesome adventure in Oregon!!! And thanks to my friend @cameronrhanes for helping us with the fun stuff – we needed the extra muscle!!!
