So Jason finally got drawn for elk this year and was super excited. I on the other hand was not too excited at the fact that he would be gone for 10 days, but I survived. Him and his friend Mike left last Thursday to start the hunt and by Monday Jason had shot his first elk! What on earth am I going to do with him, he loves being a mountain man. And don't you worry, he is planning on having the head stuffed and mounted and plans to display it proudly in our new house. (when we get one that is) Can you imagine a huge elk head in my house?! I guess that's what happens when you marry a small town boy that loves the outdoors. I do have to say that I am proud of him, it is a lot of hard work. They had to carry the elk 3 miles to put it in the truck!
Here is all the meat! Does anyone have any good recipes for elk meat? Cause let me tell you I am going to need all the help I can get. I have eaten elk meat once my whole life, and it looks like I will be eating a lot of it for the like next 10 years. Yikes, good thing we have a deep freeze!
