Re: Why I don't shoulder shoot elk!
The argument of placement is a valid argument but I get so sick of the argument of "firepower" for elk. I have a buddy that hunts elk on his farm with a 22-250. People killed hundreds of animals for years with black powder sub-sonic round balls. Basically if you shoot it and recover it you had enough firepower and have no questions. But if you've ever shot an elk and had it get away you will replay it in your mind for life, and never stop wondering if you would of just taken one more deep breath, allowed him to take one more step, or had one more FPS if it would have made the difference.
