Went to the lease Friday and filled this feeder for the first time this year and put up this camera. Went back Sunday morning to build a pen around the feeder to keep the hogs out. Pulled the card and the first pics I get are these two cow Elk!! Would you harvest 1 or just let them be?

I would assume those are stag. I you want big bulls, don't shoot anything but big bulls.

We had 3 elk show up on our place and we shot them. Chance of a herd being there was slim in our opinion and they tasted good....

It would seem like the best thing would be to watch for a good while and see how many there are. It doesn't seem wise to shoot the only two cows, especially if you want more.
