Meat for the year
« on: September 22, 2013, 08:35:40 am »
I got a call last night from the bosses son that he got me a nice bull elk. He's a great kid and lives to hunt.
I just can't say enough about their whole family, they make it real easy to do that extra bit around the ranch.

I haven't seen him yet. The boss and his son dressed him out and hung him last night and I'm about to go get him and take him to the meat cutter right now.

I am officially jealous of the man.  Looks like a 5X6, but maybe there's another point hiding back there in the darkness?   I know I'd be pleased as could be with that one.

What a great day, any way you look at it.
I went to pick up this elk and helped the bosses son skin it. A buddy of theirs got one also, so we took the both of them to the meat cutter in the next county over. Came back and helped the boss haul his own cows home. Before leaving he asked if I still had any honey at my place and gave me a whole case of it.
I really can't say enough about these folks.
I think elk is quite possibly my favorite meat, Heck, the boss gave me probably 60 lbs of beef burger and steaks a couple months ago and I still have most of it.
Keith, come on over, or when your heading to the sisters drop on by.

This is the young man who shot the bull. He got him at 25 yards! I have never bow hunted, but that's close in my mind.

Allan- are you anywhere near the Ekalaka area?  I hunted antelope over there a while back and found nearly everyone I talked to was friendly and accomodating.  Even got invited to dinner by one of the local landowners and had a good time visiting with him and his wife.

I've never had the chance to hunt elk but if I did I'd be tickled pink just to see one like that, let alone get him.  Very nice!

Axe Handle Hound, I believe I'm about 150 miles to the west of Ekalaka, But have never been there myself.
Wishing all you guys the best of luck on your hunts.

I have never seen a bull elk in the wild although I've heard them bugle .Seen a lot of cows though .From the back sides you'd swear they have a butt the size of a Georgia mule .

I got a few pictures of this one the other morning on the way across the ranch. For size comparison that is a plenty wide two lane road. I've passed a truck right there with the big farm tractor pulling a tool bar.
