    As a still hunter who hunts nothing buy high timber. My shots are close, and I don't need a long range gun. I used a 30-30 for most of my hunting career. (60 years) A few years ago I started to use a muzzleloader. It's all I use now. Even if I hunt the rifle seasons.

    Old Hunter, I like your style. Still hunting seems to be becoming a lost art. Seems like everyone wants to spot from mile away and shoot as far as possible these days. That is a good appraoch for some, but there's nothing like being surrounded by a heard of elk in the thick timber. Long range shooting is a style I just can't get into, its very impressive what good equipment can do though!

    Thank you. It's what my dad taught me in the 50's, and I liked it so much I've never done anything else.

    Weapon of choice is my bow and death tipped arrow with screaming bull at 15 yds. However, I also have other tools and as others on here have said, I just want to be hunting. I shoot a .338-378 Weatherby that has accounted for 3 elk, in the open country. It throws a 225 grain Triple shock really fast and flat and has been known to nueter a tick at six-hundred yards! For the close work in the timber I have a .35 Whelen spitting 225 trophy bondeds that is super sweet to carry and speaks death pure and simple.

    [QUOTE=Grizz;21358]Weapon of choice is my bow and death tipped arrow with screaming bull at 15 yds. QUOTE]

    same here for sure. if i hunt them (or any other big game for that matter) with a rifle it is my M77 7mm rem mag by Ruger. i have alot of history with this rifle before i started bowhunting in '08 and killed lots of deer with it.
    I Love the smell of Elk in the mornin
    The arrow is everything
