    ...any idea on the score?

    330-340? Hard to tell without a profile view. Give us the numbers, GG! I will be shooting the 225AB out of my 338RUM in less than a month in Colorado, hopefully into a bull that big.
    Congratulations to everyone involved in that hunt!

    To all who have responded and to those who will:

    Thank you for your kind words. I hope it was a post that was as fun to read as it was to be in the hunt.

    Since there were and will probably be many more questions, I will try to answer each briefly.

    Thanks again. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Bull elk @1302 yards....

    Yes, I hauled the modified varmint rest all the way from the truck to the kill site. I was going to set it in the ravine just to the left of the bull but after going into it, I knew if I set it down, I would never find it again because of the thickness of vegetation. So I had about 35 pounds of stuff in my pack plus the 15 lb rest going up and the same coming down plus about 25-30 more pounds of meat! It kicked my tail I'll tell you!
