I've experienced this more than once and will probably see the same for many more hunting seasons. If one has the option and choice and has not already limited their hunting combination, consider a more terminally ballistic capable round. This should get you out of "trouble", that is a not so properly placed bullet, more often than a less terminally ballistic combination. It's the individual's choice but I believe there are better long range elk options out there and my view is backed by experience as I'm sure there are those that will state the same about the arrow and such.

Nice rant.
Trapper picked up a 3 year old thread. I'm sure the OP has moved on.
The new topic is about Savage rifles. Enjoy!

Glad you enjoyed reading the rant. Three years or three hours difference regarding a Savage rifle decision to the new "OP response" may still be worth the debate on a very old topic, at least to one individual.....the rest can enjoy the rant.

Long range deer hunting, the Savage M111 LRH is a good option.
Long range target shooting, the Savage M12 is a good option.
Long range elk hunting, the Savage M111 LRH in 300 Win Mag is a good option (read "the rant" above).
