Hey all, sorry it’s been a while! As I am sure with everyone else, life has been a bit busy… But we were able to get out elk hunting and my son requested we post our hunts here on SMF!

So, first is my buddies son and my sons good friend… His first elk!

Then my son…

Finally the old man (me) was even able to get in on the action….

Was a really good elk season, we rely on the weather to push the elk down where we can have a successful hunt and Ma Nature really played into our favor this year!

I have to give a shout out to my cousin Corey for always helping us out!

Hats off to the two boys 12 and 13… we had to drag two of these for a bit and they hung in there til the end!

Also, to my buddy Clay… thanks for a great elk season!

My son is already asking for jerky, snack sticks and sausage… so we will have future threads to follow up with!

Thanks for looking all!

Congrats to you and the boys on the elk!
I never had a chance to hunt elk before but those look like they might be nice tender eaters. That is the best!

I look forward to seeing the processed and cooked results :)

That's awesome Justin! Not only on the successful hunt but also the chance to spend times with the boys and making memories for years to come!

That’s just fantastic! Love to see the kids involved, and congratulations. Elk Will make some fine sausage and sticks for sure, but I usually go straight for the back strap dinner. We just finished cutting up my mule deer. Delicious.
