Yes it was, but my personal success was only part of the trip. In total, our camp of four took two bull elk and all took great mulies in three days (plus 5 days of scouting and months of planning, of course). A quick addition allows us to claim (close to) 1000" of bone for the week.

Nice Elk! Man some people! and that's a very nice mule deer. Congrats on a nice hunt!

Very nice looking animals. What a great season it's been for you so far. From what I can see, it looks like a very nice rifle as well.

Re: 2008 Elk/Mulie vs 300 RUM

CA. the gun is a basic, but pick of the litter, M700 SPS SS in 300 RUM. However, I carefully inletted and bedded it into a Bansners stock, and it shoots amazing with the factory tube and my 180 AB handloads. Leupie VXIII 4.5 -14 with TMR reticle and target turrets sitting in Talley LWT's.

BS1 - the bull scores 306". Not huge, but very respectable for the heavily pressured area I was hunting in. The rifle season opening on a Wednesday allowed us to get the jump on the forthcoming weekend warriors.

K, those are some fine animals. That muley is absolutely SICK. I'm stuck in an area with no mulies yet I am strangely attracted to them. I have a few on the wall but nothing like that.

Good Job

I thought that was a Bansner stock. With the pistol grip being so skinny on those do you have any problems with the bolt nob skinning up your first knuckle?
