Hunting.

There was a thread somewhere, but the search brought up so much, that I said the hell with it and am starting a new thread.

Anyways..........
My nephew got his little elk today.
This was on the bow hunt. Rifle is later in the year.
Not a bad spread on it.

    Yep. Usually have to quarter them and pack them out.
    But it's not an easy task. Especially if it's been shot in a gully or ravine.

    Elk is some of the best meat I've had.

    After you’ve eaten elk you’ll throw rocks at beef.....  🤓

    He usually gets his elk when he gets a tag.
    The last couple years have been smaller elk. 
    This one is a pretty decent size.

    Give them time. My father in law lives in the Va mountains. A few years ago the government released a bunch of elk there. Then they released a bunch of wolves, I guess to eat the elk IDK 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I’ve tried bison and don’t understand what the hype is about them. Is it because they’re lower in fat or what?  

    The bison I ate didn’t have much fat and it was tougher’n shoe leather. And I bought it from a ranch that only raises bison....

    Go figure..... 😎

    I had a thick bison steak in Cody, Wyoming a few years back.  Excellent.

    If you ever have a chance to try antelope, do it.  It's amazing.
    Hey, you gonna eat the rest of that corndog?

    That elk is too big.  I would shoot smaller ones that are easier to carry.  Plus, if you got two half-size ones instead of one big sucker, you'd have twice as much fun killing them.
    @peter4jc

    I’m not so sure about that - at least the part about a half-size one being easier to carry (or drag)...  the ugly little forked-horn elk I got back in ‘81 only weighed about 400 lbs on the hoof and I only had about a half mile or so to drag it but it seemed more like 20 miles...... and it was fairly level terrain.....  🤠

    This one probably weighed between 800-1000 pounds. 
    Like Marty said, small ones are still 400-600 pounds.
    Oregon has tag drawings in certain areas, so a person might not even get a tag for one kill. 

    And in the Clatsop County area, none of the elk are small.

    We must have different antelope. I'd barely consider them good enough for coyote bait.
