    5A elk scout

    Off roaders and week ends go together like Peanut butter and Jelly. I can't say for the rut to still be active 10/13 but there is a good chance. I would bring a bugle to help locate a bull. There is always those young bulls who still think they have a chance with a late cow. Give him a hot cow call and he will come in.

    Maybe give him a .177 cal. Air rifle. That should do the job. ( This is a joke)

    I think it was a joke

    The .243 is ideal for game weighing between 90-130lb but is also adequate for 180 lb big game animals. This weight limit is suggested not because the .243 cannot produce sufficient penetration on larger game, but because with rear lung shots, even though wounds may be free bleeding, kills can be so slow as to allow animals to run considerable distances and become lost altogether to the hunter. On heavy boned deer and elk careful shot placement is the key. Countless Elk have been successfully harvested with the .243 without fuss. However, for every success story there are just as many failures. While many experienced hunters like to argue the limitations of the .243 based on their own skills, animal welfare should always be paramount. There are a great many calibers more suitable for larger game than the .243. Have him practice with the 30 06. He might like it better and even shoot better with it. He is 16 and he can make his own final decision.

    Otc elk. My first rifle elk.

    So traditional black power is unethical too then. One shot make it count. I don't see what the big deal is. If I had to choose between his 30/30 with 150 to 170 grain bullet, archery or black Powder I would pick that 30/30 all day long.

    What elk bugle/call to buy?

    My huntin buddy drew a early rifle bull rut tag and I'm not sure on what bugle/call I should look into buying. I want a good quality call. I was thinking of one from Rocky mountain calls. I have a cow call but no bugle. Any help/recommendation is appreciated.

    It looks like that was inbeded in the skull for quite some time. I believe that's why the bulls antler grew down and up. Casualties of rut. Nice bull

    ATV hunters running in prohibited areas

    Still a stupid thing to do. Your are still responsible for where that bullet goes. Joke or not. I've been shot at by accident before. Miss me and my budy by inches. Now that is some serious sh*t when you here it zing by your head. no one should joke about it.

    Isn't dumping the shitter out there illegal anyway? I always find the closest gas station to dump and most of the time its free
