The illegal shooting of a magnificent elk triggers a deadly conflict between backpackers and trophy hunters deep in the Colorado Rockies.
Backpacker Ryan Hart is deep in a Colorado wilderness with two fellow hikers when he witnesses the death throes of a magnificent elk. Realizing the elk is an illegal trophy kill infuriates Ryan. A nonviolent young man by nature, he commits an act of defiance that triggers violent retaliation from the trophy hunters and drives Ryan and his friends into the depths of a terrifying savagery.
The only person who can save them from almost certain death is a young female hunting guide who represents everything Ryan opposes, and everything he needs to survive.
TROPHY KILL is available from Amazon.
