Default 7x7 Roosey! Outdoor Dream Foundation Hunt

This year has been the beginning of a new life for Jessica, who's spent nearly 4 years fighting two forms of cancer and recovering from the treatments she endured. Now in remission, she's gaining strength and energy each day, and was finally able to go on her "hunt of a lifetime" put on by the Outdoor Dream Foundation...a South Carolina based non profit agency providing the means for children like Jessica to experience the outdoors in a way they couldn't on their own.

One of the options was an Oregon Elk hunt, and with the incredible support of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Stimson Lumber, the adventure was truly a once in a lifetime experience! Faith in the Field was lucky enough to film her time here, and I hope we captured even a fraction of how incredible this hunt was for all who were involved.

Jessica flew in Monday afternoon with her dad and a friend from the Outdoor Dream Foundation, taking in the sights of the Northwest for the first time. We sighted in her rifle and settled into "elk camp" the evening before day 1...



We shot a .22lr with a scope for practice...Jessica put 100+ rounds through the target one afternoon...




I don't have photos of all of the experiences, but our video cameras were rolling every day out. We saw a lot of elk...and experienced more than most do in a lifetime! We had elk far and near, big and small...chuckles, bugles, cow talk...it was amazing! On our third morning we had dropped into a canyon chasing a bugle, and had a mature bull only 70 yards away...we could hear him breathing and raking, we felt his chuckles and his bugle shook the ground...he just never gave us an open shot before his cows led him away. That same evening (day 3, Thursday night), all of Jessica's hard work paid off! At 210 yards, it was as if she was pulling the trigger of that .22lr and was shooting that cardboard box...she DRILLED this DANDY bull through both lungs with the first shot out of her 7mm-08, and punched her tag on an unbelievable, and unique, roosevelt bull!

Enjoy the photos...

Getting our hands on him...




Jessica and her dad...


The crew...


Sunset...


You can best see the points in this photo...both inner brow tines had stickers coming off...





With a few days left in the Northwest, Jessica made it to the beach, toured the Tillamook Cheese Factory, took a helicopter ride over the areas we'd hunted and even went crabbing so we could add to the table fair of Saturday night's barbecue.

Thanks to Sitka gear for donating a jacket for her hunt...well, at least for the crabbin trip...


And thanks for all the others who donated equipment and time to make this hunt what it was...it truly was a "dream hunt."

The footage will be on this year's dvd coming out in February!

I love this story. Great work by everyone who helped this hunt take place! And a big shout for Jessica who put one heck of a bull on the ground. Beautiful chocolate rack and a ton of meat in the freezer for her family this year. This is a true huntin story that sticks with folks their whole lives. Congrats!

Thanks for all the comments guys! It was a special experience...one of those that you look so forward to, and really enjoy in the moment...but don't realize how amazing it truly was until you're reflecting on your time days and weeks later. I'm excited to put the footage together for her and her family, and to re-live the hunt for years to come!

I think her helicopter ride was on Tuesday of last week, on day one of the hunt...amd we were crabbing in Tillamook Bay Saturday from about 10am-1pm give or take...my dad has a big "Faith in the Field" logo on the side of his boat. We had a lot of fun on the water, it was a great day weather wise too!

Lol! 27! Joking...it sure did make the pack job easy though!

Jessica and 6 others were there when she shot...and once we had the bull down, phones rang and 3 others came within minutes to be a part of the excitement...it was neat. Everyone's anticipation level's were getting high since this was the evening of day 3!

Default Re: 7x7 Roosey! Outdoor Dream Foundation Hunt

I have delayed on posting because reading this story and seeing all the volunteers, and love, reminded me of a quote that my Great Grandmother gave to me before she passed on and I wanted to find it to share:

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometime lose sight of this force
when there is suffering, and too much pain.
Then suddenly,
the spirit will emerge
through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call
and answer in extraordinary ways.


I for one would like to Say Great job Jessica!!! The smiles say it all.

I will love to watch it on DVD......!!!!

First off – congratulations to Jessica for successfully battling 4 years of cancer. You are obviously a very tough and courageous young woman. This also explains why you would choose an elk hunt in the Oregon coast range. This animal and this terrain requires tough hunters and you certainly meet the requirements.

Congratulations on a great elk - beautiful, dark antlers w/ extras - he is truly the “elk of a lifetime”. I know every time you look at those antlers on the wall it will bring fond memories of a great hunting experience with great friends.

Kudos to Outdoor Dream Foundation, Stimson, RMEF and the Faith in the Field guys that supported the hunt. This is what hunting is all about.

P.S. Those sunset pictures should be published in a magazine or on a hunting calendar.

Congrats to a very brave and courageous young lady. I know first hand what it's like to live with/around the cancer battle as my wife is fighting right now. You deserved this hunt and it is so cool that it was able to be filmed for you to show off to everyone back home.

A big thank you to all involved for helping this young lady.
