Default My first elk!

I killed my first elk a couple of weeks ago in Colorado. It was a private land/fair chase guided hunt with Atkinson Expeditions. It goes without saying, I am tickled to death with my bull!!

I killed him at 117 yds using my Winchester Mod 70 Featherweight 30-06 and my 180 gr Nosler Accubond handload.

That is almost picture perfect of my first bull. Havn't shot one any bigger since. Good job and nice first. I would guess in the 270-280 for a score.

I went with Atkinson Expedition last year on a mule deer hunt. I had an awesome hunt, they have some huge bucks. Atkinson Expeditions is a top knotch operation! I would recommend them to anyone, anytime, anywhere. They do elk, mule deer, antelope, and whitetail hunts. Check there web site out.
