Well I finally found out the age of my bull. 7 years old. I would have never guessed he was that old, at least by how tender he is.
Bout Time 😂😂😂

My Grandfathers 2013 Selkirk bull was 12years old and tuff as nails. Had to take all the steaks back and have them ground into burger.

Mine was 7. Everything has been great on the eating side.

moose and age means nothing with meat toughness. Ive seen 2 yr old bulls eat like car tires and old bulls be super tender

My 2019 bull was 9 years old. Most of it was tender but the last steaks are a little tuff.

 :dunno: Its pretty common with moose to be hit or miss for tenderness. This particular piece was a backstrap that was marinated and cooked over charcoal to rare and wasnt edible. Its been 17 years since I tried eating that and remember it to this day as the toughest thing Ive eaten. He ended up either slow cooking the steaks and thawing a bunch and burger. I shot my moose every steak cut was test grilled.
