Default Points for the guys!

I wish the number of points you got was determined by the size of the animal! hahaha



I shot her in NW Colorado on 10/11/2009 with one shot from my Tikka .30-06 at 325 yards (exit hole is visible, she was slightly quartering away). She spun, took 3 strides and piled up! Estimated live weight is around 500 lbs based on some formulas I found online given the 175 lbs of boneless meat I ended up with!

All in all we went 5 / 6 and the 6th guy should've got one. This was a DIY rifle hunt on foot and we all had OTC cow tags.

5 days of hard hunting in which I walked almost 30 mountain miles and I carried out somewhere between 200-250 lbs of meat. I only made 1 trip to camp at night with an empty pack frame and that was the last night!

Can't wait until next year!

Packing all of that meat out has to be quite a chore.

Congrats on the elk!

It's still a female. Doe, cow, whatever you want to call it.
