Re: Good elk hunt

Impressive bulls! There will be a life time of memories from that hunt I'm sure.

I may have an opportunity to take an elk with a Creedmore in a couple of weeks and I have been on the fence about it. So question about the 6.5 Creedmore bull: How did that go? What bullet? Berger, SST? 250 yards sounds good and I could have an opportunity at that distance.

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Oh, and like everyone else, I've got some serious envy at the moment.

Re: Good elk hunt

I am using a 129gr. SST. I only had about 10" of the top of the bull to shoot at. Shooting down hill. It anchord him on the spot with a low neck shot. when I got down to him he was still alive so it took another round thru the lungs. The bullet didn't exit and I haven't looked for it in the spine-neck yet. But I think it will do the job though the shoulders at that distance. Let me know how yours works out.

Congrats on a successful - not just that you all filled your tags kinda success, but that your kids want to be hunting with you. I hope your other son is able to join you next year for a 3-party family elk-camp.
