Third attempt. Man this is frustrating.
Okay, so I have talked about my boss' vaunted shooting skills on many of an occassion and here is some proof.
This 6 x 6 Elk was taken at about 11,000 feet in Wyoming on a hunting trip Don Rose just got back from.
This was a 293 yard downhill shot of about 30 degrees from a cold bore and resulted in a one shot, one stop on this big bastard.
The weapon was built by Brett Evans of N.W. Armswerkes and is a Winchester Model 70, chambered in .338 Winchester, with a 23", #6 Krieger barrel that is heavily fluted to save on weight.
The round impacted the animal in the shoulder, punched through both lungs and stopped in the guts somewhere. The animal staggered about 10-12 yards and bled out in less than a minute.
Rack measured out at about 300 for those that are interested.
Ended up with just under 290 pounds of hanging meat after dress out.
