Re: 338 Edge Twins strike in Washington

great job and good story guys.....i'm curious though as to why wash would have a spikes only elk hunt??? here in colo it is 4 point or better to allow the bulls to mature, and it is working great. i've seen more big bulls this yr than ever before. AJ

Re: 338 Edge Twins strike in Washington

dogdinger,

I think everyone in Washington wonders what the Fish and Game dept. is doing. We saw some huge bulls in this herd and my brother has several pictures of bulls in September that range from the 320"class to close to 380". They only give out 2 rifle tags in that particular unit for branched bull. Most of them die of old age.

Re: 338 Edge Twins strike in Washington

Good shooting guys! That's a great story.

I just got back last night with my WA spike and am going back today with my brother as he's got a cow tag. Long story short, I could've shot this guy as 420yds at 7:02, but just could not be completely sure he was just a spike as it was very dark still. I was dialed and on him and 95% sure he was a spike through the rifle and spotting scopes, but just not 100% sure. I found the same group back in the trees a few hours later and this guy took a 300RUM shot 240SMK still doing about 2900fps at 80yds in the chest--quite an energy dump--about 4500ft. lbs. I figure. He went about 20ft and expired. Front of his chest was jelly. Little sore today from packing him out of the wilderness yesterday...
