Default Local customer scores on Elk!





Local customer went on a wilderness elk hunt a few weeks ago. He sent me these today. He said the grizzlies were so thick that they had to sleep with firearms loaded. Said they got charged a few times but he pulled out a nice big old bull. 561yds right in the shoulder. The rifle is a 300wm with an X-caliber 27" barrel.

Nice bull. That was one looooooong shot, but he apparently hit it in a vital spot. Good for him. Glad I didn't have to help him drag it out.

A fella from Dougs neck of the woods (Boseman) was mauled twice scouting for Elk pre season. He survived somehow..

Default Just when you think you are done. ....

It goes without saying, try to hunt uphill for Elk when possible.
