Hi all, I live in Colorado and have hunted mule deer with some success the last several seasons - I did get one a couple years ago.
This year, I'm attempting to get both a cow elk and doe tag, so I can hunt simultaneously. I've done some limited research on using a .25-06 on elk, and there are mixed opinions on doing so.
Are there any opinions on the use of a .25-06 specifically for cow elk, which I have to guess are (on average) less "thick" than bull elk? I'm considering using a 100 grain Barnes Triple Shock bullet for both cow elk and deer, as I've read they are very tough bullets, usually retaining most if not all their original weight. I would expect to keep any shots within 200 yards.
Thanks for any thoughts.
