Great story, and as someone else said, one you will share and relive probably for the rest of your lives.
Well I won't lie I did the cutting and horses did the carrying......I did however make the rookie mistake of putting backstraps, heart, tenderloins, and neck meat in my pack, then strapped the head to it..........I darn near killed myself climbing out of there. I was running on pure pride so of course I just did it.....and limped around the next day.....or two......now I know why guys out here couldnt give a rip about deer.......cause we have ELK!!!!
Backstraps for breakfast sure makes getting up worth it.
Also anyone who ever said that Nosler Ballistic tips won't work on elk...........were wrong.
