2017 muzzleloader cow
« on: October 08, 2017, 05:07:52 PM »
Heres my 2017 Washington elk. Lucky enough to draw a cow tag this year and made the best of it! Spotted the herd about a mile away, worked in on them and got to 130 yds. I stood up from behind the sage, took aim and shot! When the smoke cleared there she was laying there!

Yes I had the traditions vortek before and was a great rifle. A buddy was selling the knight and its been shot 5 times so in decided to pick it up. Shot them both and the knight was the winner for me! The thumbhole stock and peep sight are really nice and feels a lot better in my hands.
