Kind of hard to sprint to a long distance shot. My son-in-law shot a nice bull two years ago at that kind of distance. When he got to it, three other "hunters" beat him to it and it had their tag on it. Didn't even show signs of another bullet hole. They got really testy when he complained. He left empty handed...I just subscribe to dropping an elk on public land and sprinting to it so no other “hunter” will beat you to it and shoot it in the neck then tag it.
This happened in the Chesnimnus unit.
