    Clearly the Elk just lay down out of pity for being within a square mile of a .243 user...

    And so it should prostrate itself in the presence of such a fine calibre!

    Yes a good shot.

    Now I will put my grumpy old prick hat on
    Typical Yanky high spine shot, a 223 in the same spot would have had the same result.
    Nice how they pan away straight away, so you can't see the animal on the ground.
    Very unlikely it was a clean kill as in the narration.

    Rant over sorry....

    I take your point Greg and agree but it could well have been a high lung shot(my preferred if neck not practical) as this will usually still shock the spine enough to drop it on the spot,and by the time they recover from this they have already bled out. Low= still in the lungs or heart. high= spine
    Exception to this for me is if it will be prick to find if it travels or rolls any distance then I try to break both shoulders

    Yep I know what you are saying but that isn't that likely with a "little" slow calibre like the 243 & that shot looks very much to me to be a spine shot just on/behind the lungs/diaphram
