Still planning on backpacking in a couple of miles setting a spike camp up. I have three friends two of which have also hunted elk so I am confident in our ability to get everything in/out.

We all spend our time at the range, making sure our rifle is shooting just right. We get it dialed in, and then we head to the woods, ready to shoot our animal. Well, what happens if the animal comes out where you do not expect it? Will you be able to make the shot?
This scenario has happened to me. My first deer I ever shot, I had to shoot left handed. I had never practiced that way, and paid for it by having my nose broken with the scope. If I had just...
