I'm sure you know this but elk are tough. No matter where the bullet hits the animal, if the hunt goes well, just keep shooting when the opportunity allows. Get as many shots in as you can after the first hit if you feel it's necessary.

Coincidentally, my dad and i had this same discussion last night. If the hunt goes well, the consensus was to hit'em until he goes down and maybe even once more after that.....

It would kind of suck to be giving congratulations once its down and then have it be gone when we walk up to where it dropped.
lol

I disagree. It would totally suck mud.

If your dad gets the chance I hope he pounds an elk square in the shoulder and drops it.

Re: 30-06 Ammo Selection

No experience with it here. You said it would "kind of suck." I was merely adding that it would suck a lot more! I've been very lucky. I've never hit an animal with a bullet that wasn't there or close when I walked up to its last known location at the time of the shot.
