Shawn,
Great story & fantastic shooting! I also thought about going elk hunting this morning but the conditions at my office were obviously different than yours! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Good luck to both you & Kirby on your upcoming whitetail hunt.
Dave

Re: 1038 YD ELK vs. 338 EDGE

I see you didn't tote the gun up the hill for the picture either. I recognize the types of vegetation and mostly I recognize the steepness of the mountian.

Really a fine second shot on a moving animal a 1K+. I saw it done once on a person but have not heard of anybody before who actually did it on an animal.

Re: 1038 YD ELK vs. 338 EDGE

When I hunt without a spotter and am certain there was a hit but uncertain where because I didn't see impact or a blood spot appear in the right location I shoot untill it is down. That is the reason for the moving shot. I have practiced on moving targets quite a bit in various sniper classes and have a good feel for it as long as it is not the primary shot. I'd have let the 2 bulls walk away if they had not stopped at that distance. Just for the record trapping the animal is much more consistant for me than tracking a sustained lead at long range. Thanks all for the compliments.
