    Got out this week and found a cow to tag. Popped over a ridge and the herd of cows was 287 yards away. Hit this cow behind the shoulder and she spun and started running quartering away so I hit her again behind the shoulder with a 280 Ackley shooting 168 nosler lrab. Hoping to find the wife a cow first week of November and then find me a bull over thanksgiving

    Excellent! Lots of good steaks & roasts right there. Good shooting!

    You're going for two more? A cow for your wife and a bull as well? That's a LOT of elk! :) Enjoy.

    We go through an elk a year easily. Last year I ended up only getting a calf so the freezer is looking pretty bare. Hoping to get two elk in the freezer this year in case I don’t get lucky next year
