Are you using a guide? Ask them. A good friend who was hunting further north, said he used a .257 roberts loaded to +P using 100 grain partitions for all the light stuff and a .338 for everything else. He claims the .257 was much nicer shooting when you are wearing the thinnest shirt you have and no shoulder pad and when you are shooting five or six times a day at the plains animals. He says that for much of the small stuff, a .243, 6 mm rem or similar would be just terrific, I think the biggest he went for was a Sable. about the same as an elk. For that he used the .338
