Opening Day Muzzie Spike
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:22:40 AM »
Shot him about 30 minutes into the season last Saturday.  I heard a group of elk bugling and cow calling, snuck around a ridge and watched them walk across the hillside in front of me broadside at 200 yards.  Cow called once and he stopped and turned broadside.  Dropped him where he stood!

200 yards open sights. So cool, congratulations.
Still in velvet. Does it scrape off or was it still being fed by blood?
Lead em if they're running.

You're a better shot with open sites than I am.  With me, 200 yds would be a prayer.  I tried once, cross-canyon, but it quickly became apparent it was a futile endeavor.  So I quit trying many years ago.  Now I look for elk to be under 100 yds.  But congratulations to you, you made it work.  Nice spike!

It was just starting to be scraped off but was in relatively good shape.

Shot him in the neck
