That gives new meaning to "Don't shoot till you see the whites of his eyes" Good lord that was what 10 maybe 15 yards.

I actually had a bull elk thrashing a tree with his antlers and I was on the other side of the tree! What a rush. Oh and a little footnote that elk got away without me getting a shot at it. God I love elk hunting.

One of my all time fav songs at the end of the vid. I broke quite a few speakers playing that song

Man that was close. The guy could have gave Bullwinkle a wet willy

Default IMO/IME a 1X scope with

both eyes open would be just as good (if not better) than irons due to the single sighting plane.

Default Imo

Nice shot. I have a removeable rear peep sight on both my 93x62 and 338-06.
Mostly incase I break my scope afield.

The problem is so close you get nothing but a brown blur in the scope. I use see thru rings on my rifle so I can just peek underneath in a situation like this.

Default Beg to differ as a 1X

scope has NO magnification, hence no "brown blur". If you have never shot a properly mounted 1X scope with both eyes open, you don't know what you are missing.
