That is a question only you can ansewr.I have been elk hunting for 3 seasons and am comfortable taking a 200 yard shot. I shoot a close group at 200 yard (within 1.5 inches for 3 shots). I would like to have a better group before I try for a longer shot. I also have my gun zeroed at 200 yards. I have never had to shoot farther than that for the elk I have harvested.If you shoot a lot and are comfortable making a long shot then go for it. The biggest thing to consider is how confident you are in your shooting ability and what range your gun is zeroed at.Good luck getting an elk. I just got back from Wyoming and didn't find a cow, which I had a tag for. But I did see some 6 point bulls, way cool. Have fun and don't take the shot unless you are sure it will be a clean kill.May you be blessed.
