I never have hunted elk, but you need to get a big rifle and shoot them in the lungs and they will die.
Practice a lot with your rifle so that you are a real good shot.
The bolded part made me smile.
I'm an acceptable shot; Uncle Sam's Misguided Children saw to that. And I'll be putting as many rounds downrange as I possibly can beforehand. I'm more concerned with the "getting to within rifle range" part, personally.
