I havent been able to put the camera back up. Yesterday it got to 40 degrees. I buried the Griz is slop. Terrible. So I borrowed my wifes parents old skidder from the neighbor. And dug it out.

My brother shot a cow elk today near Chama, New Mexico. 6.5 Creedmoor, 140 grain Nosler Partition @ 200 yards.

Heck of a shot. Nice job by your brother.

 

I like to read about U.S. historical events particularly the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. Very interesting and challenging times. Your brother's shot was from 200 yards with a modern rifle and scope. The turning point in the Revolutionary War came from a rifle shot by Timothy Murphy at Saratoga, NY. He climbed up a tree and killed British General Simon Fraser from 300 yards using a rifle with iron sights. British General Burgoyne subsequently surrendered and, with that, the French entered the war paving the way for victory over the British.

 

At a gun club I belong to, it is very difficult to even see a 12" target at 200 yards much less hit it. I can't imagine trying to shoot something at 300 yards, with iron sights, and with the pressure of everything on the line!

That fresh cat track in the elk trail in the dark makes a 6’3” 250 lbs man shine my light up into the trees…. Just to be sure.

 

Its a biggin. Bigger than my fist.

 

I bought a rechargeable ledlenser head lamp from Cabelas. Its brighter than the atv! I love it. Get home and throw it on the magnetic charger. Done deal!

I will take a WAG.  Timothy Murphy was totally color blind. Zero color perception.  Years ago I worked with a totally colorblind guy.  He had scary wicked accuracy with open sights.

With my old eyes now there is no way I'd shoot at a game animal at 300 yards with open sights, but I was still shooting NRA silhouettes just a few years ago with a 1903A3 with open sights, and the rams were 250 yards away. And that's free hand standing with no rest. I'd hit the rams pretty well. I seemed to have the most trouble with turkeys.

 

Three years ago I shot a caribou bull @ a measured 360 yards, but it was with a 3x10 scope in 300 WinMag, 200 grain Accubond. One round through the boiler room. 

 

My poor brother lives with a wife and daughter who won't eat game meat, and I live too far away to economically get the meat. He gives almost all of it away! That elk would be prime eating.
