I never thought I would see anyone with too much gun for Elk... With my definition of too much gun being one that kills an Elk too dead.... I finally found it.

I was guiding some friends from New York on an Elk hunt in Arizona over the weekend... We found a bull on the first morning and Dick shot him... It killed him too dead... as shown in this picture....

That's a .50 Caliber Earsgeschplittin Loudenboomer. Not generally considered sporting for anything smaller than a single seat fighter...........

Ha! That's pretty good!

That's a nice find. Can you legally pick 'em up that fresh there?

Oak, That picture was taken on the White Mountain Apache Reservation. It's not legal to pick up anything except the animal you shoot. This was a cow hunt.

That gun would have worked perfect for my last few rifle hunts. I could pack all the meat out in one trip, just using a few ziploc baggies and my pockets. And not destroy any of the horns.
