Nice looking bull. Congratulations!

Now we don't want to see a cougar sitting in that chair behind you next week! LOL

400 yards is a long shot even with a 300WinMag, what kind of rest were you using?
What was the general area you were hunting in? I'm not hunting elk but just curious where some folks are finding them.

We were hunting the cascades near the Hwy. 22 to Hwy 20 junction about 4500 ft, opening morning right after sunup. I was shooting off of a bipod in the prone. You don't have to worry about photo shopping. (It would be pretty cool having a cougar in the chair but I don't know how to.)

Very nice bull! Congrats!
My buddy just shot one couple days ago at 400yds with his .270 as well. Bullet went almost all the way through, was found barely sticking out of the other side stuck in the hide. Barnes bullet. It's just the type of load and shot placement.
