Default RE: 270...elk cartridge?

Things got slow and quiet on the Forum, heh, heh
This little diddy came to me and I jotted it down during commercials,
Sorry, couldn't help myself!
It was only a handful of posts ago, on this thread that......
Blasphemy and Sacrilege! Our beliefs you defy,
Angrily accused by the 270 cult was I!
As darkness fell, I was attacked from the left and flanked on the right.
I even heard the faint whispers of O'Connor’s old might.


Away from my allies, alone I had strayed,
Two or three on one, an easy mark they thought made,
Then came that Elk Cartridge Poll with results so tall,
and suddenly over theForum an eerie silence did fall. [][]


For the sunwas now risingand it wasclear to see....
Things now, are DEFINITELY NOT, as they once used to be....
Magnums and their 30-06 kin now rule the elk hunting day,
And turnabout my friends, is indeed fair play.

The Poll was open about 3 days and open to anyone from the forum to respond to the following question:

What is your favorite elk cartridge that you've actually taken elk with?

2- 270 Win
