All looks good to me and as long as he is legal in AZ I'd be aiming for the far front leg and TWANG.

I'd wait for a more broadside presentation. On a big animal like an elk a hard quartering away shot isn't a sure thing. The heavier bones on bigger animals can really affect the penetration path of the arrow. The deflection can be disastorous. And at that angle it's likely you will only get one lung. One lung would be enough but it will be a long day.
