That is pretty neat. Can't fault a guy for trying to put more lead in an elk after a good first hit. They can be tough critters. I'd have shot again as well. Glad the antler stayed intact.

Lucky shot in that it didn't bust it all to hell.

Re: A scirroco thru his main beam

Thanks all. I'll be watching for the Hartebeast pic as well. I can only imagin
your disappointment if it messed it up real bad. I know that I would have absolutely croaked if mine had busted off! For me this bull was a once in a lifetime
7x7 scored 359. I had never even seen one this big while huntin before, probably never will again. I would have been looking for the pieces to put it back together.
Anyway I narrowly missed that disaster.
