 AS many as you can get I guess.
The boy and his wife each got two a bull and a cow.
I don't normally hunt elk any more but I rottenly put in for damage hunts
for them, never get a draw.
I got back from calling yesterday and had a FWP letter on the counter.
I thought it was a survey or something, NOPE.
A notice I got drawn for an elk damage hunt. I can get two licenses for two cows.
It is a 9 week hunt this Monday to Feb 15th that is 4 weeks longer then the general season.
I have not decided yet, we have taken several deer and they got antelope too.
It is easy to give deer and elk away in the normal hunting season, the processors are still open .
Now the people would have to proses an elk at home, that's a lot of work.
If I can find two people willing to do that I'll go always fun to hunt.
PS I got a fox .

You get an elk or two and I'll drive to the Falls and pick it up for daughter and my folks. Just give me a time and location.

As with any "Hunting" trip there is a great chance I would not even SEE an elk.
I do have a person that MAY want one.
If that does not pan out and if the Christmas gods will.
I will try to shoot two and I defiantly will give them to you, If your series. I won't go If I don't know for sure There given away.
PS they will probably be in pieces it is a walk in only hunt.Shocked

I'm serious, if you stab em, I'll slab em. If they've got the guts out, I'll take care of them from there. If someone else gets one, I'll still take other, in pieces and hide on or off is fine by me. I've gotten them before, on late hunts and had hide freeze on, before you got them skinned, it's still doable. My folks love elk, but Dad's 84, so doesn't hunt anymore, I usually take what I can, in checked bag when visiting them, they enjoy it.

I work Fridays thru Sundays, but could come over any other day.

Properly prepared and frozen it will last longer than over one season.

We have a deer program "hunters sharing the Harvest"; you get it processed and then give it to food kitchens/banks and they reimburse you for processing costs.  got one out there????

We never have a problem with to much elk meat, every bit extra goes to family members who did not get any this year and need meat. It never goes unused.

I think I started that program by not having a lock on my freezer years ago. Now that age is creeping up on me a bit and I think if I really need the animal...(really want to drag a smaller animal). the amount of game is smaller, so I share with my friends who have better seasons/young and willing to drag long distances. Great program on slow years!
