Repost - 150gr or 180gr for Muley/Elk in 300 Win Mag

I figured I'd post this in the Elk thread to get your opinion as well... As most know by now I'm relatively new. I've been shooting 150 gr in my 300 WM for my first 3 years of Mule Deer. I'd like to start hunting elk at some point but was concerned that the lighter/faster bullet might not have enoug...

150gr or 180gr 300 WM for Mule Deer & Elk

As most know by now I'm relatively new. I've been shooting 150 gr in my 300 WM for my first 3 years of Mule Deer. I'd like to start hunting elk at some point but was concerned that the lighter/faster bullet might not have enough penetration for elk. Ideally, with my 300 Win Mag I'd like to use one b...

Wife Drew Her First Tag - Idaho Unit 44

I came to this forum on a recommendation and posted a little about myself on the roll call. My wife and I got into hunting late as both of our families were fisherman. It wasn't until we moved to Idaho we finally decided to dive in despite starting from scratch with no experience between us. We have...

New To The Board

Someone mentioned this board on another forum and I thought I'd come check it out. Looks great on first glance through. 29 yrs old. The wife and I are originally from western Oregon but have been in Idaho since 2004. Always wanted to get into hunting but my family was all fisherman. My wife and I fi...
