First off, archery is totally different from gun huntingas I’m sure you know. Two of my hunting buddies hate archery because of the chance to wound an animal. That’s where being careful to only take high percentage shots is a great thing to learn.
Look at putting a B-stinger on your bow. You should be able to try it out before buying.
I use the Rage on hogs but refuse anything but a rear quartering shot. Like the old commercials said: like throwing an axe through an animal haha! I do know that it will shoot through stuff that would collapse a muzzy. For elk I’d look at the Zwickey (sp) or maybe Shuttle T’s. Whatever you choose, make sure your bow shoots to point of aim with them and SHARPEN THE SHIT OUT OF THEM! Lol.
Bull elk is my bucket list too. Killed cows but not a bull.
Also make sure point of impact doesn’t change with the quiver off. That cost me on a hog with a Martin bow. (Noisiest friggin’ bow)
