Went on my first ELK hunt this past weekend and killed a decent bull... and i will admit i am HOOKED! i loved it stalked this elk and a 6x6 with him for 2 days all over the hills before i could really get a clean shot. I was useing my browning A-BOLT 7mm REM MAG with a Nikon Monarch 5-20x44SF BDC sxope . i took the shot from about 125 yards and he droped. I couldnt get a shot on the bigger 6x6 so i took this nice 5x5 ..... Posted up a few pics for you guys.
For the record the 7mm REM MAG was extremely effective on this ELK. I hear alot of people wonder if its to small of a caliber etc... was shooting the 150gr winchester supreme silver tips... from 125 yards it expelled all its energry in the animal and the bullet came to a rest the hide on the oppisite side from the shot. This Elk didnt take a step and droped coughing up its internals. Very happy with the 7mm rem mag
