It's not that we don't like them, but most of the time when you harvest an Elk, they are not in a conveniant spot to pull the truck up to and haul off. For those of you that havent seen 500 to 900 pounds of critter laying on the ground before you on a mountain side at 10,000 feet in elevation, the last thing you think about is packing out the rib bones. Last years bull was a few miles from a road, and took 4 of us with 80 pounds of meat ONLY in our packs and I had the skull and antlers on top. I have only had the opportunity once to haul off the ribs, and I will agree they are good. Just not worth killing yourself over.
