Shot him last Saturday evening.

Hunted a different area that morning and moved a few miles east that afternoon after only seeing deer

Got settled in to my new spot around 3-3:30 and took a nap.

About 4:30 woke up and fiddled with my gear, phone and watched a mouse of some sort dog around near my foot for a few hours. Around sunset, it starts getting cold and as the end of legal shooting light aproches I start gathering my gear, put on my jacket when I hear an elk mew across the valley in front of me. I look and see him walk out of the timber about 260 yards out. I pull up my glass and look at him for maybe 5 seconds, surmising he has more than 4 points on a side and put them down, grab the Weatherby and shoulder it. He starts to feed and I place the crosshairs on his shoulder (I still haven't looked at his horns yet) say a prayer and squeeze one off just behind the foreleg. Gun recoils and I hear the bullet hit and see him running across the meadow. I rack another round in, swing on him and let another one fly, it hits him about 4" above where the first bullet did and he slows to a walk, takes a few steps, turns an starts to wobble.

I keep the gun on him and after a few seconds he falls. Only at this point did I see his rack but it still did not register what I had killed.

I run over to him to check him out when I hear a rifle shot close by, I assumed it was my partner who was hunting semi-close by

I get to the buggy and ask him about his shot, he says " well, I heard you shoot twice and I figured you were lost so I gave you a locator"

We go back to the bull, gut him and snap a few pics and leave him their till the next morning.

It was a fun hunt, the least amount of effort I have put in on an elk hunt and got maximum results. My 7mm scope took a dump on me during our sight in session and I never could find a suitable replacement so I ended up using my .257 wby mag. I'm much more impressed with that gun now than I was before o
