    Wow, that's great. Sounds like you've got a really comfortable deer blind. :up:

    Timberghost, this is an amazing feat!!! Unprecedented in fact (I think). Anyway, I'm guessing you are relatively new to the forum. If so, I'll tell you that we have a saying that sounds derogatory but is actually a compliment. So I will now bestow upon you a well deserved "YOU SUCK!!! This is a very coveted honor on this forum bestowed upon those that do things that are obviously looked upon with envy by the rest of us. So congratulations and you're sucking so bad you're popping my ears all the way down here in southern Texas.

    Welcome.

    Welcome to the forum. Look forward to more hunting reports and pics, gotta have pics.

    We have something in common timberghost. I have hunted dear's in my bedroom, cant recall shooting one through the window though..............

    Great looking Elk. What calibre/bullet did you use if I may ask?

    Nocturnal emissions don't count, that's just shooting in the dark.

    Closest we've ever got to that.......and I'll hate him forever for it......MHS shot a cow elk from the front porch of the cabin.....in his long johns around sunset. Him and Nigel, a cow each, both in scivvies and boots, hilarious and probably will never be repeated, classic!

    Funny thing is, I was outside smoking a cigarette and spotted them first! Shots were 30 degrees uphill at about 200+ yrds.

    You sir, have taste when it comes to calibre choice. :up:

    Dont happen to have any pics of the wound entry, damage etc by any chance? Did the bullet remain in the animal or pass through? Reason I ask is that I too use a 7mm08 for most of my hunting.

    Wow - I wish I had access to that kind of blind! All we have down here is miles of dry, boring desert. Great bull.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    As far as I'm concerned, the best part is that piece of heavy equipment in the background. Not that you had to haul it very far, but having that big old tractor available sure must have been nice.

    How long does it take to train those Idaho elk?

    Orchidman, I love the 7-08, had a lot of different cal. in my life but the 7 is here to stay. The bullet was never found, it did not exit though,I didn't look for it because of the mess it made,couldn't tell the difference between the inards, looked like blood pudding. LOL.He was quarting awy when I shot, entered in the left rib area and went toward the right shoulder. My son has a .243 ackly improved that is my next favorite, he killed a nice spike with it a few years ago, range was 180 yds.another one shot drop. His shot was the same as mine but on the o0ther side, the bullet broke the right shoulder, that round is very impresive.

    JerryBobCo, some years it takes a while to get them trained to stick around for the season, other years it ain't so hard. LOL. The elk in your avatar is sweet, I bet good eatin. The dozer is to big to take through the timber, I use it to maintain my road and plow snow some years it gets used alot. used the atv to drag it to the hangin tree.

    Hey now Alec, the only reason he used the 7mm-08 is that he shot it in his bedroom and didn't want to wake his wife so he used the wanna be .270 instead!!!
