Thoroughly enjoyed reading your story.  I couldn't agree more with the statement you made about harvesting an animal and the feelings and respect that goes along with that.  Thanks for sharing.

I like it.  Thanks for sharing
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I know I would be the same way with a quality tag if I ever draw one. I don't have the brand new family excuse but I'm glad there's someone else who goes "oh, there's a bull" and takes it lol. Congrats on a great hunt and a great animal!

Man, that is an awesome write up. Congrats on the bull. Love how you took all the meat off that elk. Respect!

Thank you for all the great comments guys, I appreciate it. My only regret is being done SO FAST, and not getting to spend more time in the woods. Momma is glad to have me home, and I'm heading to Idaho in a couple weeks so these brownie points count for a lot!

I started cutting meat yesterday and it's crazy to me how big everything is. I've killed several elk, but never a mature bull. They are crazy big animals. Going to be lots and lots of good chewing.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.
