Re: Bull elk @1302 yards....
One little tidbit from the hunt that goodgrouper and 7mmRHB left out is that about half way inbetween where the shot was taken and where the elk was we spotted two black bears, it was so cool to watch them we forgot to get a camera out for a pic. It is the first time I have seen black bears within eye shot of where I live ever !!!!
7mmRHB mentioned it was a burn area, but he did not mention that when it grew back it was 5 times thicker than before,it took 4 hours to hike the 1302 yards. the bullet made it in less than 2 seconds,quite a contrast.
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
