The rifle belongs to a friend of my son. It's a Savage 110 with a Vortex 5-25 scope. It is set up for long distance shooting. The friend killed his elk at 1300 yards. My son shot his at 1100 yards. Both of these are more than twice the distance I've ever shot an animal.

The shot was across a canyon with no wind. He missed another 1100 yard shot earlier but the wind was howling around 30 mph. He hit the bull three times. The first was a gut shot, the second shot hit him in the hind quarter and the third was in the neck. He had a good side view of the elkon the first shot, the bull took a few steps and was facing away for the second and third shots. The bull only walked five yards from the time he was first hit until he dropped on the third.

Thanks

That bull for a first kill has set the bar impossibly high, it'll be mighty hard to improve on that bull. Congrats on an exceptionally fine trophy elk !

Not many people can make 1100 yard shots in a 30 mph wind.

Wow..you [bleep] are the [bleep] that give us all bad names.

Was there no one intelligent enough in the group to think "man maybe we shouldn't take an 1100 yard shot with 30 mph winds"?

Bunch of dummies. That's the worst of the worst. Borderline above poachers.
