    It looks like you may need to adjust your windage a few inches to the right; which may be a problem, because from your postings on here it is likely you can't get much more to the right.

    I haven't been Elk hunting{also quit golf,drugs, whores, etc} since I got back into dogs 5 years ago. But I have still been accumulating preference points {currently at 8} in my home area of Unit 76 in SW Colorado.
    I promised my buddies that when I draw I'll make it out there. I've got some serious training to get back into Elk hunting shape, though.

    Congratulations again on your bull and Bon Appitit!!
    Had to shoot him across that canyon 435 yards in a bit of a cross wind... 270WSM with 150 grain Nosler Partition bullet. I actually aimed in front of his shoulder to hit where it did. I was well above him too, so the angle was good, it dropped him in his tracks. The elevation there was 5,500 which is a lot for a flatlander like me!

    I like the way you think Stan. Why save our money for when we are 80 years old and can no longer do the "Bikes Booze & Babes" any justice

    HA! Believe it or not I had a lab when I lived in Alaska that went everywhere with me including big game hunting. There are others up there that do the same. I have shot dall sheep and caribou and sent the dog on his name. Funniest thing is... he would actually run out to the animal, then sort of look at it like he was trying to figure out if he could pick it up! Then he would just come back to me sort of shaking his head (if a dog could do that!)... That dog loved going on those trips, only thing he hated was the smell of brown bears...

    that's a nice bull Bill, been through Williams quite a few times, guess I better pay closer attention next time...nothing flatter shooting than a .270 and a WSM to boot, what kind of scope on that bad boy...got the rest of the elk that we took in Colorado, nothing leaner and tastier than elk tenderloin

    Hi Bon, I use a Leupold VX-III 2.5x8 with the B&C Reticle. Zero it at 200 yards and you are pretty good out to 500 or so with a solid rest, although the shot on the elk was the longest I have ever taken on a live animal. Usually try to get as close as possible.

    Man, you are right about the meat. As good as anything I have eaten. Dall sheep may just edge it out though. The desert bighorn I got in AZ back in 2007 was pretty darn good too, just awful small in the body...

    Never had the pleasure but that surprises me, I would have pictured either as being tough as an old goat..but then again they could be like lamb with a touch of mint jelly...it sounds like you may almost have the sheep slam ( Dall, Desert Bighorn, Alaskan Mountain Goat)....all you need is the Stone ?

    Alaskan trip is very high on the list but dont think I want to see an Alaskan Brown or Grizzly without at least the .300 Win Mag instead of a fishing pole

    No, I need the Rocky Mtn bighorn and the Stone Sheep. I have been applying everywhere that has the bighorns and buying the raffle tickets etc.. for the last 10 years... the bighorn should come. the Stone is another matter altogether. They are up to $40,000... unless I win a raffle hunt for one or win the lotto that hunt is not happening unless I want a divorce. Not looking to do that again You would be surprised, the sheep meat is very similar to elk. Very lean red meat. Not like domestic lamb. More like elk...

    Elk is one of my favorite's along with Antellope.
    Bill, I hope you didn't do what I did for years and throw away the ribs. They are delicious!!

    My all time favorite is Bald Eagle though!!!!

    40 K for a Stone...Sharon Stone maybe...now I know why the only person I know that has taken one is a cardio thoracic surgeon who gave up FT labs years ago
