Cole Cushman found his passion for hunting at just 11 years old. His extensive gun collection can be traced back to when he received his first rifle at 15, a Browning medallion 7mm. In 2007, Cole decided to merge his personal love for hunting with his professional career in finance by starting Gun & Trophy Insurance.
The crisp air stung as we marched through the deep snow in the Colorado mountains. The landscape was breathtaking in more than one sense. Our hearts were set on bringing home a 900-pound elk bull, but the planning and work involved in the hunt were proving to be more than we expected.
The Western Bongo: a glorious beast sporting a mahogany coat etched with bright white stripes. Thick, slightly twirled horns rest supremely atop its head. It is a masterpiece and it is yours. Every time you look upon your trophy, your chest swells with pride as you remember the hunt.
It’s another misty Saturday morning, and you are awoken by the warmth of sun rays that are streaming through your bedroom windows. You’re jolted awake by the sudden realization that today is range day with your friends. Any weekend is a good weekend when you get to spend it with your buddies and your firearms.
The sun is peering in through a small window and casting a warm light across the wooden floors. You can hear the rustling of crunching leaves and hushed whispers outside – the sleepy campsite will soon be bustling.
