First long range bull elk

I shot this 342 inch 7x6 on the last day of my New Mexico elk hunt... conditions were tough not many bulls around, due to the weather... very windy and cold... I glassed this bull from 1200 yards and got to within 535yards . One shot from the 338 RUM and the rest is history..... It may not be Long Range to some, but with that wind of about 20 -30 mph, that was a shot of a lifetime for me, with more to come when Shawn gets done with my new Rifle......

A very good shot in difficult winds. Different looking antlers.

I am thinking about hunting New Mexico because I was hoping to avoid snow.
