    I’m looking into units to hunt elk with the 2nd rifle elk tag in Colorado

    If we found such a thing as an OTC unit with less people but lots of elk (a good unit) we'd all be going there ... and then there wouldn't be less people anymore. OTC units can be ok for elk but there will be lots of people.

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    Interesting insights memtb, thanks. I certainly do see the advantages of using the same rifle & load and really learning it’s ballistics, etc. It seems to be working well for you !

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    I’m glad you’re happy with your choice of caliber. I’m sure it works great. That’s awesome. I have a real question though … how can you guarantee that canon will cause less tissue damage than a .270?

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    As I said, I was joking guys. Maybe I hit a nerve. I agree with CC that there isn’t really “one gun” that suits all … at least not if you’re bringing Africa into the discussion. But for North America, the 30-06 will handle anything there is and is a pretty fair “one gun”. I do believe there is...

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    WY Grizzly Attack Injures Hunter

    I figured it was a bean bag gun just to scare him away. He was shooting up in the air after the bear left for additional effect.

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    Another way to save ammo $$$ is to practice with a .22. Much cheaper and you can practice different shooting positions, etc.

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    Yeah … ya gotta practice, practice, practice. I shot so much over the last year I burned out my barrel and had to replace it before my Antelope hunt. There’s no substitute for practice.

    I got my Antelope 30 minutes after sunup the first morning of the season. Couldn’t have found such a great spot to set up camp and hunt without Colorado Cowboy who came along as my “guide”. He’s an awesome friend who I really enjoyed sharing a campfire with. Thx CC !!
