OK maybe this should go in the Food Board, but this Elk started here and will end here. food6  Several of you have requested Elk Steaks, but this is as close as you will get.   smiley_wavy
 

 
Elk loin being sliced into relatively thick slices.
 

 
And then vacuum sealed before going into the freezer.
 

 
That is all except two.   ;D  They were quick seared in a hot black iron skillet.

 
And then popped into the oven until they got just right.
 

 
Yup, that's just right.   digin1

I'm drooling with Jeff! On the "party hunting" issue, I always find the differences in law and custom of each different region or state quite interesting. For instance, in MN it's completely legal to party hunt. As long as all members of the party are licensed and afield together, all is legal as long as the number of deer shot doesn't exceed the number of licenses. One exception would be a youth antlerless permit can only be filled by the licensee. Firearms musg be fully cased and unloaded when in a vehicle. You get out to Wyoming, if you try to bring your gun case in the vehicle you get a sidelong glance- "We ain't got room for that!". Then you load your magazine up, safe folks keep the chamber empty but it's not legally required. So after you get used to that, you mention filling someone else's tag-"cough, gasp, wheeze, that's PARTY HUNTING! We don't do that out here!"😂

Yup, it is your responsibility to know and follow the laws in the state where you are hunting.  Some slight violations in Colorado may get you an opportunity to correct it but party hunting, firearms, and carcass tagging will insure that you get to meet the judge.  Colorado has slightly different laws regarding firearms in vehicles vs ATV's.  AVT, it must be completely unloaded and cased.  Cars & trucks, the chamber must be unloaded.

Thanks for sharing your hunt Lynn, it was a great read.
I need to take a few minutes and figure out how to get pictures from my phone on here and tell about mine.
