Default Elk climbing a tree

Got your attention didn't it. The wife drew her favorite tag this year, "muzzle loader elk". She started freezer training this one at 0800 on the third morning. One shot at 50 yards with a Remington 700, 50 caliber loaded with a 400 grain conical ahead of 100 grains of Goex FF-G lit off with a musket cap. Peep sights as no optics are allowed. With a little persuasion she, the elk, climbed the tree and got on top of the jeep so we didn't have to make a two hour round trip to get the trailer. We noticed quite a few people rubber necking as we drove in to town.

Excellent very good eating there.
