Rooster, if you are having trouble getting up on the mutts then I am in trouble. I have been after a pack of 4 over here. Yesterday I spotted something in a low spot peaking at me over a berm. Looked wolfish and there were 4 of them but was a long ways away. I backed out and come in from the other side of the section and set up. About an hour later I spotted them again. I put a sneak on on almost flat ground and got to 1400 yards. They were 4 of the biggest yotes running together I have ever seen. All large and a brindle color..
I am still after those 4 and will continue to watch elk herds. Damn I want to fill this tag....
Shootermedic, A 300 win set up well is a great hunting rifle. A 28" Sendero contour tube and a match reamer is the ticket. Then just buy a 8# jug of H-1000 and some 215's if you liked what you saw here. My new 338 LRKM is going to give me the confidence to go out farther. Also have the power and a big enough bullet to do the job well I hope. There are some elk that always hang in a spot that is almost impossible to get to with out spooking them. I plan to practice there during the summer learning the currents and taking notes. Then maybe surprise a few next fall.
AZShooter, good job on that cow. Thanks for the report. She sounds plenty tasty to me. Enjoy those steaks.
