I grew up hunting blacktails and Roosevelt elk in western Oregon. Very little flat land and lots of dark old-growth Douglas fir forests snarled with rhodies and sword-ferns. Neither blacktail or elk are 'predictable', so we did a lot of road hunting or stalking. Shooting is 50-150 yards, and the disparity in the size of the blackies and Roosevelts means two very different calibers. Lots of guys used .243 for blacktail and 30-06 at a minimum for the elk. I carried a Model 94.
