I was with the gear at the hide when the bull was quartered using the gutless method. However, with tattered copper fragments just under the hide near the exit wound this would indicate the bullet fragmented yet still traveled thru enough vitals and having an exit.
Here is a link with antelope pictures shot in the 900's using the same bullet and gun. I would expect similar results on this elk.
RL-33 First Blood
My understanding was a portion of the backstrap was left with the carcass.
