Thanks. Will do. I'm looking forward to the chow. I had elk about 20 years ago but cannot remember how it was. Can't wait!!

Not sure what the average weight is, but he said that this one was about 500 pounds.

BRU,
Tell Pops great trophy. The feeling of accomplishing a goal is always great and remembered. I hope he sets more goals like this one and accomplishes those as well. A job well done. Just my thoughts, Wazoo54

It will taste great and fill up the freezer. My buddy usually goes to Colorado every year for elk but the last 2 years he has gone to Idaho. Either way they taste better then deer in my opinion. They are better for you as well in terms of it is a leaner meat.

Congratulations to your dad! Bull or cow makes no difference. The fact that he was able to go out and succeed is awesome...Elk meat is dalish!
