So if that’s your Sophomore season you’ll have to work hard to beat it in your Junior season😉. Congratulations! Sometimes dreams do come true.

Great bull! What bullet did you use in that 290AI? I used the Speer 160 Hot Core in one back in '94

Just saw this, 280 AI (I'm sure that's a typo), 160gr Accubond. Out of 4 only one didn't pass through, recovered it and assuming all the others looked like this, I won't be shooting anything else anytime soon. He only went probably 30 yards, but I had heard from Newberg and Rinella ad nauseam to keep shooting until he's done. First shot was easily registered as a hit by my hunting buddy, apparently it clipped the back of his front shoulder blade (bull broadside facing to my right). He stumbled forward a few steps not putting weight on that leg and then stood stationary with that leg held up a little, I then put #2 and #3 in him very quickly and he staggered forward a few yards and slumped down onto his belly behind some short brush. After that Mike kept watching him in his binoculars and within a minute he told me he had picked his head up, so I went down the ridge to my left and set up where I had a clear shot. That 4th one hit him and he rolled over on his back and slid down the hillside out of sight.

My favorite pic made the top 10 on the 2019 Rokslide/Kifaru Elk photo contest. If you happen to have an account I’d love the vote if you deem it worthy, and even if you don’t have an account there some spectacular photos to view in here!
