Re: Cow elk

Work is how that would work.
I'd do that if it was easy access and I had help. Last year I got a cow at 2 pm. Got it cleaned and spread to cool overnight and back to camp by dark.
The next day, boned and packed out. all Day. I was a tired pup.
Best of luck, end enjoy the eats.

Re: Cow elk

Wondering if it was legal to kill 2 in same day. Hunting with an outfitter that handles that,

Re: Cow elk

I have never killed an elk, but I have killed 8 deer in the last 2 years.
I could kill a dozen deer and get them to the butcher in one day with less work, if I could drive my truck right up to the animal, easier than i could kill one animal and pack it out 5 miles of rough terrain.

What does it all mean?
Making gut piles is easy, packing out is hard.

Wait till you knock down and elk, it makes you think twice about where you shoot them after the first one But they are funner to shoot than deer Always shoot up hill from the truck, ALWAYS!!!
