    Default Wapiti

    Headed out in the am to shoot an Elk in New Mexico.

    I’m beside myself and the anxiety has burnt a hole in my gut..

    Who’s done it?

    Anything I need more than a Rifle that shoots a long ways and a desire to kill every animal in the world?

    You’ll need an elk to cooperate.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Be prepared to walk your ass off and then walk some more. Stay hydrated.

    Taxidermist can fix broken points
    Be ready to shoot first day
    The size will shock you
    The sound of rifle hitting it is great!
    The processing bill and mailed meat to sc was also shocking

    I can’t help you a lick about Elk hunting, but I would recommend taking a sleeve of dip with you

    Good luck
    Be proactive about improving public waterfowl habitat in South Carolina. It's not going to happen by itself, and our help is needed. We have the potential to winter thousands of waterfowl on public grounds if we fight for it.

    My guess would be guided since you can't run them with dogs.

    500-700# critters don't require really good optics. Stevie wonder can find them at 2 miles.

    Pbiz. Great luck. Have fun. Enjoy.

    Honestly, the absolute 2 most important things on an elk hunt is:
    Lungs
    Steady aim that shoots a straight rifle.

    I'm guessing but after 30 elk hunts those seem to be most important.

    Last years bull is only 267" Can't imagine anyone not happy with this. Don't let inches change your mind.

    Make a good shot. Bring back all the meat, it’s a lot better than white tail.
