Bigger is better on elk. Still takes bullet placement though. But after years of seeing all kinds of things happen I'd say you lost your bull IE didn't take him home. But I doubt that he is anywhere near dead. FWIW

Taos - did you find any blood where you initially shot him? If not, then I would doubt that he is dead.
Where were you aiming - maybe this would shed some light on what possibly happened.

Meichele - good bull. I bet you didn't think he was "small" while you were packing him out!

Re: Finally drew an Arizona bull permit part2

He was quartering away looking back at me over his shoulder. I was holding behind his left shoulder trying to clear his rib cage. We heard the very distinct sound of a hit as well as observed the bulls drunken reaction including almost losing his feet and staggering around. The only conclusion's we have come to is a horn hit or a gut hit with some of the guts plugging the hole preventing any bleeding. I have seen both happen in the past.

Re: Finally drew an Arizona bull permit part2

I need some help. I am trying to find the rate of twist for the barrel of my ruger m77 . The rifle is chambered in 3006 . Everything is the original factory parts . The barrel length is 22 inches . I would like this information to help me decide what bullet grain weight would be best for hunting.
