Sneek Freak, aka Jed Larson, uploaded this video this morning.
I want to hear your thoughts & experiences on shooting elk with a .243 Winchester.
My opinion, the kid was extremely comfortable with the gun and made a great shot. I will take a light caliber, with a well placed shot, over a big caliber, with a poor placed shot.
The .243 Winchester is a good all around gun for youth hunters. Obviously, shots must be kept to closer ranges and be well executed. A .243 Winchester is not a gun you would recommend for high shoulder shots, so behind the shoulder is a must. This is where practice and patience are critical!!!
Great job Davey!!!
