My Grandson Jimmy got his first Elk at 14 years old. His Dad put him in for the first ever Kentucky Youth Elk hunt and he drew. It was quite the deal as a guy from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation came in a guided for him. He got it on opening day in a blinding rain storm at 10AM. He had passed on a really nice 5X5 and a couple of smaller bulls before taking this 6X6. He used a H&R 300 Ultra Rifle in 270 Win that I gave his dad a few years ago. The gun has a FN Mauser barrel action and a Fajen stock and they were marketed by H&R during the 60's.
