Re: 6x7 bull elk

I am glad you didn't join the forum until after I had claimed to have killed a "BIG" 6X6. That guy makes mine look so puny.

That is an interesting picture because you can almost see the outline of the shoulder bones. My natural tendency is to shoot at exactly the shadow line behind the shoulder. It really took a lot of mental effort to move the crosshairs into the bone.

The big guy is not far from the trees either.
