First Bull Elk
Monte Hammon's daughter, Hannah Hammon Kohler, took her first Bull Elk after thirteen years of applying for a tag. The bull was shot at 380/400 yards with a 30-06 Mossberg Patriot rifle, Nikon 4 x 12 scope and a hand load of 53.3 grains of IMR4350 over a CCI200 primer propelling a Sierra 30 caliber 180 grain SBT GameKing® #2160
bullet. One shot through the heart and both lungs and bullet was recovered against the hide on the far side. Perfect mushroom and bull dropped within a few yards of being hit. Thank You Sierra!
