This is the 5X6 rag I passed on, I know, I know, I shoulda whaked him, hindsite is 20/20. This photo was taken at about 120 yds, at one point, I called him into a lazered 29 yds, standing broadside with his head behind a tree. Easy shot, but I was still dreaming of the monster bull I had seen the day before.
Well, the truck is all packed with my stuff, now I just need to get Moe's and Mike's in there. The knives and zip saw are ready and the game bags are clean. The muzzleloader is sighted in, but only about 1 1/2 inches high at 100 - I wanted to go a little higher, but it took all day and the range closed at 5 PM on Saturday. It seems to hit about a foot low at 200 yards - does that seem right to you muzzleloader experts? It is a .50 caliber 348 gr Powerbelt bullet over 110 gr of Pyrodex.
Weather looks good, although the thunderstorms may provide more water holes for the elk.
