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.

Those elk or red deer? Either way I'd be eating good.

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.

I may not be wise, but I am hungry. I also know how tasty elk are.

Kill them both. Unless you want to be replacing your feeder.

I would shoot the bigger one. The other is her calf probably from last year. Maybe it will hang around and get bigger and provide more steaks.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Where does elk fall in the hunting manual ? They are not exotic ? Is there a season for elk ?
