Sorry to hear you mis-judged the ranges and missed out on your Elk. Here's a tip for next season. Get yourself a 50lb grain bag (it is about the size of an Elk's chest) and spray paint the line of the crease of the shoulder on it and fill it with fiber; if you use straw/hay back it with a regular bag target. Practice on that grain bag for a month before Elk season. It will train your eye to mentally find the 'kill spot' in the shoulder crease and will mentally train your eye to better estimate the distance based on the size of the grain bag. This is what I have done for years ... now, I can hardly look at a deer or Elk without zooming in on the kill zone and not even thinking about range, even with a recurve.
