    In 2015, Dawn Paynter won a Super Hunt elk tag.  This tag meant she was able to hunt elk in any open  hunt in the state.  

    “When I got the phone call, I couldn’t speak, and I had tears in my eyes,” Paynter said. “I knew I had endless opportunities to fill my tag and never doubted that I would harvest a large bull.”
