Well, the stars aligned perfectly over the weekend and I was able to seal the deal on a great bull elk. While hunting, things never seem to go as planned but this time everything worked out. You'll see in the video how close this bull came in, first time I've ever had a bull that close. I could have used my bow. The packout was brutal but with the help of some friends and family we made it out and didn't have any meat go bad in the 75 degree weather. The bull died right in the sun but we worked as quick as possible to get him caped and quartered. Still took several hours and the packout took several hours more. Total of 13 hours to get back to camp with the meat from the time I shot. Here's a video and some pictures of the great weekend.

Here's the bullet I recovered from the bull's left lower shoulder. The bullet went through the right side, passed through both lungs, and stopped in the hide on his left side. The Barnes bullet stayed together as advertised. I switched from a hornady SST bullet that would fragment into 20 pieces upon hitting any bone other than ribs.
