SHOOT!

Dang man, what are you shooting?  A bowling ball launcher?   :chuckle:

Thank you.  You have made my day.

Im an archery guy, but I still think Id wait this guy out a little bit. Hopefully hed move around to give me a better shot or keep raking the tree a little more to let me move in for a better shot angle. Also I may get a chance to see the other bulls in the neighborhood if Im a little patient.

My big red dot ,ah I got a little excited.

At 75 yards it would be in my comfort zone of taking any shot on this elk.

I was waiting for some cannon comments. :chuckle: :chuckle:

Either of the last two.  I'm usually not a head/neck kind of guy, but the angled shoulder shot looks like a lot of wasted meat to me.  If it did not look like I would get a better broadside shot, I'd probably go for the center star.

Neck shoot.  I have made the mistake of passing up and waiting for the bigger one.   Tag's need a lot of liquid when they aren't notched.

If I am shooting the .270 it's going in his eye ball.

At 75 yards, only thermals for wind and if I've got a decent rest/brace, yeah I'm taking the neck shot and thanking God for the painless kill.  Middle star in the photo above.
