Miller etched her name into the record book with four other sportsmen who had harvests on the opening day, Monday. Miller’s elk was a 5×6 (5 antler points on one side, 6 on the other) with an estimated weight of 700 pounds.

The life-long sportsman made his second shot attempt from about 100 yards shortly after 7:30 a.m. (EDT) as the elk stood on the edge of an open field. The elk field dressed at 520 pounds.
