Before the elk hunt our freezer was looking a little bare. Now it is full. After the hunt was over it took all day Sunday and Monday to cut, process and wrap all the meat from the two elk. I have two freezers, and before we divided up the meat between all the parties, they were both completely full of meat. No room to spare. Everyone who went on the elk hunt ended up with a full cooler of wrapped meat. And we still have to grind up all the burger meat!
It is a very welcome change from last year when we did not harvest an elk. By the following May we were out of meat. And compared to deer and goat, elk comes in BIG slabs. We will be having some BIG roasts this year! Patrick
