    Elk are big tough animals. As always shot placement is key, but my wife killed her deer last year and it had a hole in what looked like a perfect shot from another hunter. The deer was walking around like nothing. I had an archery bull tag a couple years back. After i killed my bull i saw he actually had a broadhead wound right in the "void " the Bull was feeding with cows and didnt look injured at all. My point is after seeing what deer and elk are capable of surviving, i went and bought a 300 win mag for elk hunting

    Anywhere in western Colorado has Elk. Use a well constructed bullet and use a heavy for caliber bullets. I've used a 7-08 and .308 up to a 35 Whelen and 8mm Rem Mag. just keep distances reasonable. Elk can absorb a lot and still be on their feet.
