I just didn't think it would go that long...
But...now, I can start blogging again!
Got my elk this year. Yes...I know it's 'only' a spike, but in Eastern Washington's general Modern Firearms season, all you can shoot is a spike.
It's still a decent sized animal...probably about 500 pounds on the hoof.
The only reason it came out in one piece is that I hunt with six other guys. If I was alone it would have come out in bite size pieces.
For the technical minded out there, the gun is a Remington Model 700 chambered in .35 Whelen, using Hornady's Superperformance load(200gr bullet at 2900fps). It did quite a number on the front shoulder(powdered it)...I just didn't get pictures during the skinning.
