Wifes First Elk

Well, in fact, her first year hunting and her first kill. It was windy as the dickens but we trudged in and found a heard grazing. We stalked in close as we could. I pushed the snow back so she could shoot prone. Ranged two cows at 415 yards. Dialed the NXS up and she was set. She sent a 210 Berger from my 300 Win and sealed the deal.

Here is the happy hunter with her first.

Jeff

    Glad you two were able to get out.

    First hunt? Doesn't appear that it will be her last.

    I like that rifle. What stock is that? Lemme guess it's a Manners?

    Thanks guys!

    Roy, that is a McMillan .. The Lazzaroni thunb hole series. Very very light stock with a high cheek piece. I love it on a hunting / carry rifle.
