Im dead center in the 20-30 year old range, this is my second elk also my second year elk hunting because I grew up in Michigan. The first elk was uphill from camp and I had to pack it about a mile and a half through an old burn, well worth it and I would do it again. This one I was able to drag down hill hook onto it with the 4wheeler and drag it back to the truck. Today I skinned her out and it doesnt look like my bullet exited the chest cav, unless it went into the off shoulder. No blood shot and it doesnt look like any wasted meat.
