    I have waited for 7 Years to get drawn in my zone in Alberta , Canada and my Dad came up to join me in my Hun from Saskatchewan. Went out the opening morning to my area I have been Scouting for the last 4 yrs. Me and Pops went out to the area that we figured would be the best chance of getting one and the second field we came to we seen 3 bulls. 2 small 3 yr old bulls and the one i decided to take. It was a tad bit bigger than 51" on the tape and I took him with my new Savage 110 BA .338 Lapua. I scoped it and placed a one shot kill @ 300 yrds. The new hybrid bergers (300gr) worked awesome. Small entance hole and definetely hit it with some energy cause the whole side I hit him on was bruised( which i have not seen before ) and i have shot alot of stuff with my old lapua shooting combined technologies (230 gr).

    Cant say enough about the company for the hunt ( my Dad ) and the way my equipment performed. I guess with the right stuff and enough pre-hunt planning any unt can be successful
    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies me and dad were really pleased
    And yes I cannot wait to go with my son and sees his first
    Trophy he is just 3 yrs old, but hr comes with me mist days but was with
    Grandma this day lol. The bullet performance was perfect small entrance hole
    That hit the heart and blew ur in half then a 2 " exit hole. Bullet had lots of impact force
    And dropped the big guy where he was standing, I was unsure in how the bullets would work
    But I will keep with theses fir as long as I can, and that's awhile cause I've got over 500 rounds in stand by

    I wish he dropped by the road, I had to drag him 500 yards to get to the road, it was brutal to drag and I have a 1000 cc quad. I just took the picture there after I went and got the truck trailer and quad
