General Elk Hunting / 2021 Elk Meat Pole
« Last post by resebo on Today at 05:50:25 AM »
Elk Hunt 2021 turned into bear hunt 2021, we ended up seeing 7 bears over 12 days of hunting, none of us had ever killed a bear. I shot mine at around 125 yards with a 30-06, my brother shot his at 23 yards with a bow and dad shot his at 12 ft with a muzzleloader. We were into the elk but wasn't able to close the deal. The first week we were invaded by 4 hunter new to hunting elk, they played pure havoc on our hunting. We had a 6x6 at 25 yards in a stream when the local farmer ran about 30 head of beef cows over the top of us, several other close calls. My brother ended up shooting this bull after our friend had already shot it twice.

Wow, that's cool. Was the bull limping much? They're incredible animals.

New Mexico Bull from last Friday. 15 yard frontal. Someone had taken a shot at him the week before and centered that shoulder knuckle. Maybe that's the reason he was so pissed off that morning. 11 months to prepare for next year....

I think that a lot of that is shooting loads that have been tailored to that specific rifle. Very
Consistent if I do my part. Glad I had powder,primers,and bullets squirreled away as finding reloading materials are quite the adventure these days.


You aren't kidding!!! I feel like it's been a while now since we could find stuff readily available.

The planning is under way as of now. I have 4 points going into next years draw and will be flying solo. Anyone thy is willing to share any advice on a decent area to start is greatly appreciated. I do have a buggy if that helps any or is it even worth pulling all the way up there.

So I added a Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 PA scope with a BDC reticle to my browning 300 win mag a bolt. Went to the range and dialed it in at 100. Four holes touching and the other two within a 1/2. Close enough for a minute of elk. dialed in to 200 yards and three within an inch, dialed in to 300 yards and three within an inch and a half. Not enough space to shoot out past that on this trip. Will have to find a spot out on the Pawnee Grasslands to stretch out for a 400 yard confirmation. That is about as far as I go to practice. Never take that shot when hunting. Am very impressed with this scope.

We hunted the 8th through 13th. Got on elk a couple of times but never got a shot. The elk were silent in both cases. It was HOT, which I am thinking had something to do with the elk being so quiet.
