Re: Why I don't shoulder shoot elk!

I kill elk to eat, so shooting them in the shoulder is one of the stupidest aiming points in my opinion.
We all have to learn lessons the hard way more then we admit!
If you go out to kill an elk to say that you killed an elk. Haul it to some poor other person to cut up, and then write them a check for processing and pick up your three boxes of meat, then shoot them where ever you wish ! I hate cutting blood shot meat!
Happy hunting !

You forgot the part where they whine about only getting 90 lbs of meat of an elk and calling you a thief because they have half the packages of steak because they blow a hole through them after blowing the shoulder of it!!
High Fence, Low Fence, Stuck in the Fence, if I can Tag it and Eat it, it's Hunting!
