Elk concern me more than moose. Elk are high adrenelin animals that explode into the depths of the fire swamp when shot...never to be seen again...alive. The moose hunts I've been on are quite different. You see a moose, it just stands there......You shoot a moose and they....just stand there....or they just trot a little and lay down.
30-06 is great for moose.
I myself, believe the 35 Whelan has the perfect ballistics for the areas I hunt. (for elk)
But, everybody should have a 30-06 IMO.
