Re: Bull elk @1302 yards....

Nice write up Grouper!! Great pics. The mountain looks very familiar. I want to point out that the Thunder is for REAL.
Through the spotter I would see the bullet connect, then a second later hear the guns report, then a couple of seconds after that I would hear the sound of the bullet whacking the Elk and I was well over 2200 yards away!!! An interesting day to say the least. This area is a burn area that is so thick that most of the time I could only tell where the guys were at by the small trees parting as they made their way up the last half of the hill. These four guys are tough !!! W.T. will never forget that day for sure!!-----7mmRHB

Oh, by the way, I dont know crap about elk but that looks like a awesome bull. So for what its worth from a redneck who still has never seen a bull elk that SOB would have a happy place on my wall!!!!!!

Congrats to all on a great hunt. Thanks for the story and great pictures. Makes me miss living Out West even more than I normally do. Really beautiful country and awesome wildlife. Best of luck through the rest of the season.

There isn't much to say, just congratulation to all the hunting party. The building the the thunder has proven to have been well thought out. I'm happy for the shooter the the rifle owner, for the folks that were there to tell the story. Great hunt!!! Thanks for sharing... Man! not bad concidereing I did not have much to say...

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
