Son harvested his '09 MT elk
My son shot his elk this last weekend. Made a great shot at 300 yrds, center body just behind the shoulder. No lost meat. Once again the 6.5-06 w/ 130g Sciroccos performed exceptionally well. The cow went about 20 yrds after the shot and dropped. Recovered the bullet in the hide on the off side, perfect mushroom. Have not yet had a chance to weigh it, but it looks like last years that retained 82%. Spent tonight cutting it up. Got all the steaks done, and will take care of the burger tomorrow night.
So you all know, he was selected for a game damage hunt on private property in south west MT.
Talk to you all later,
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
