This is my uncles elk he shot last week, 3 by fork. A couple of .30-30 rounds to the neck and head did him in.
My uncle didn't start huntign until 5 years ago. In 5 years he has killed 3 bucks, a doe and now an elk, all with his marlin .30-30. The man is a TRUE hunter. He reads maps, scouts year round, puts more miles on his boots than the tires on his truck. He is a brush buster if there ever was one. He is patient and remembers every little backroad and trail we come upon. I can't imagine how many animals he would have to his credit had he started hunting at a young age.
