Elk just don't seem to have the situational awareness that whitetail do. I've seen too many videos of them just walking right up to, or right by, the hunter.

Although worked out great for him, believe me, still not a high percentage shot. I had a bull last yr that stood at 40 yds the same angle, for what seemed forever, me at full draw and I wouldn't shoot. Finally he turned broadside and gave me the shot I wanted. Tough Big animals

No way would I take that shot. Glad it worked out for him, but I would have had to wait for a broadside shot.
