Joy-Anna and Austin, 25, along with her younger brother’s JasonJustin, and James, embarked on the elk hunting trip on October 10. “Y’all! I got to come with the guys this year on their elk hunting trip!” she revealed at the start of the trip. “It’s freezing cold and we have already done a ton of hiking, but we’re excited because we’ve already spotted some elk!?? Can’t wait for opening morning!”

The majority of Joy-Anna’s siblings and her parents Jim Bob and Michelle were in California visiting Jinger during the same days of her trip to Colorado so they were unable to care for Gideon.

Joy-Anna revealed it was her brother Joseph and his pregnant wife Kendra, who is expecting baby number two, that took care of her son while she was away.

Although Joy-Anna and Austin spent nearly two weeks away from home, they didn’t actually hunt any elk during their trip. The 21-year-old told fans they were “going home without any Elk, but with a load full of great memories!”

The couple certainly bonded on their adventure. “Austin has tucked me in every night, given me his blanket so I’d be warm, took my heavy backpack when I was getting tired, encouraged me when I was struggling to finish hiking up the steep trail,” Joy-Anna gushed. “He is such a gentleman and helps encourage me to achieve my goals and dreams! I love you so much, Austin Martyn!”
