Re: Filled my Wyoming General elk tag!
I remember that sick feeling (happened only once, but ya *always* remember it) on a non-DRT shot and minimal blood trail. For me, it was with an iron-sighted long shot (~525yds) on a whitetail.... tracked for about 1/2 a mile and found her piled up (was a pass-through neck shot grazed her carotid artery).
Great trophy and I'm sure you'll be enjoying that set of antlers for years to come and the steaks through the winter!
