He grew up in Montana so he's been hunting elk for 30 years
Oddly enough I found this site while I was Elk hunting this year... http://www.backcountrybowhunting.com/articles/calc/ it's pretty cool!!!
Good luck and enjoy your trip
There is nothing like bowhunting elk. I love it. Like CowboyColby said "good luck and enjoy your trip"
There is nothing better than an elk screaming at you at 30 yards....
Unless it's six yards Had one do it 5+ times this year. 340" 7x7. Seriously one of my best experiences in the elk woods ever.
Sounds awesome I can't wait
Can I get some feedback on your personal set ups for elk?
Goldtip XT7595 w/ 50gr brass insert
100gr SlickTrick Standard

I shoot the Hoyt rampage XT. 27" draw length, 65 lb.
Goldtip kinetic XT 405 grain at 269fps.
this thread helped me out ill be shooting a 450 grain arrow with the hell razors and a 26.5DL and 60#. If i ever get out to hunt elk how does this set up sound?
Ramcats been my go to fixed blade head. Used the 100gr on my last two elk trips. I also took them with me when I hunted moose and woodland Bou in New Foundland. They been far and away the best penetrating head I used in 23 years of bowhunting. Amazing thing is they have huge cutting diameter and yet they still out penetrate most Broadheads.

You have a heavy enough arrow you should be fine. shot placement is everything. Watch out for the front shoulder. That bone is heavy and very few can shoot thru it. Double lung them and you will do fine.
Alright thanks for the feedback. Im not sure when ill be able to get out on an elk hunt but its nice to know that i have a set up that could get the job done. Nice animals by the way very nice.
Julien, how did your Elk Hunt go with your Dad?
I don't believe he was going until next year.
Good to see you over here, Paul
