I went out hunting yesterday, finally, and decided to do a little impromptu scouting and deer hunting. I took my .35 Whelen loaded with 200 gr. Nosslers and headed to a nearby canyon that was full of deer. About 1-mile from my truck, I look up on a hillside, and just inside the treeline, there are 3 elk. Two cows and a decent 4-point bull. 200 yds away and just standing there broadside;6 . I was too busy with work to get out during the elk season, and standing there was one of the easiest shots on an elk I've ever seen! I just sat there with tears in my eyes for ten minutes watching the elk watch me ;1. And I didn't see any deer.
