Any luck this year?

Did any of yall get an elk this year? I never have but it's at the tippy top of my to-do list, as far as hunting goes. I'm hoping to go with my grandpa in a year or two, assuming I can get off of work for a week or so during the season. Or maybe I'll just move to Colorado and make it easier on myself. Lol. No, but really...

the girlfriend got an cow, and both nieces each got a calf, out of a group of cows and calves that started to raid the feed yard at the ranch. I myself, never really had time to do any hunting this fall.

I know the feeling! So busy with work, I won't hunt at all this year. Dad's taking my wife hunting Thursday. Here's hoping she can pit some meat on the ground.

Unfortunately my 300 is down, my Nikon has problems the place that mounted it tightened it to much. Oh well, the Swede and 125 Partitions will have to do.

Still waiting on the scope to be returned. It might be replaced by a Vortex viper HS. My spare scope is a Tasco, the 300 will probably tear that one up pretty fast.

Northern Hunter, I've had a World Class Tasco on my 30-06 for years and it handled the recoil of 180 grain ammo just fine. The rifle is a tack driver, so I won't replace that scope with a high end scope, as name brand isn't necessary.

The 06 has no where near the recoil or scope shock of the 300 Wby, won't take that chance.

Agreed, the 300 Wby has more recoil, and a lesser scope would most likely fail.

I'd classify that bull a bit more than Pretty Good. Congrats!
