My wife and I are hunting private land elk this fall in Wyoming. I drew a blue chip tag and my wife wanted to go along and shoot a cow elk. She has limited experience hunting- one doe deer and one Wyoming antelope last fall. I bought her a new savage youth combo rifle in 7mm-08. The hunting will be primarily spot and stalk so ranges could vary. She is a good shot but I am guessing 250-300 yards will be the calibers ethical limit for a cow elk? If anyone has real field experience with 7mm-08 on elk or comparable I would love to hear from you. I'm mainly looking for advice on what factory load to use but also any stories/info on the cartridge for elk as well. Thanks in advance!
