Look in the first picture I have my dragging rope tied off from his antler base on his left side to a hind leg.

Congratulations ! I'm sure the bullet tumbled and sent shock waves all through the soft tissues of the internal organs turning them to jello.

The more I think about it as well the bullet had to tumble to end up looking like that. I have pictures of the little wounds he has.

Re: 338 Edge on bull elk 1435

Here is the damage. Bullet hit in front of right hip quartering hard away. I have pictures of the entrance outside and in. A pic of where I think a piece of copper hit between the ribs. And then a pic of against the spine between the shoulder blades inside the chest cavity damage. Not the best pictures they were taken with my cellphone.
