Two miles :rofl:

This bull was 3 hours from camp with 2500 foot elevation gain. Then load bull and walk
Downhill for 3 hrs.
Today's iPhone stats indicated 9 miles walked, 24000 steps and 192 floors climbed. .......and we did the retrieve twice. Not good days.
Andrea carried 40-50 lbs of meat both days as well

Tree stand hunting: :lol:

Mountain lion partially buried some of the elk. Dragged the game bags 75 yds from where we stashed it

All meat processed. Just need to wrap and freeze it tomorrow.

For anyone interested in quality self defense firearm training, I just got this from Tiger McKee, at Shootrite. www.shootrite.org

Tell Tiger I say howdy. He's a natural born teacher.

-------------

The end of the year is approaching, and we still have some days open for training. So, I’ve decided to reduce the pricing some in order to get you training at a savings and fill up the rest of the year on the range.

Normally private instruction is $500 per day, for one to two people. These special dates are $400 per day, for one to three students.

Dates can be booked for one to multiple days. If you are interested in any of these dates for private instruction get with me as soon as possible. They will likely book quickly.

October
10-13
18
24-26

November
1-3
7-9
14-16
21-22
28-30

December
5-6
12-16
19-20

Stay safe,

Tiger McKee

Wouldn't be easier to just buy meat at the store? :lol:

Great job, Mike and Andrea. :clap:

Superior bull and the sight of it gets me all pumped up. Extraction: #1 challenge in elk hunting. Heck, where you were it would even be hard to get horses in there! Great job! The soreness will wear off to a healthy glow and you will be eating elk throughout the Winter and Spring.

On topic, but slightly off topic ...

I have plans for a bit of Mike's elk. Recently got a Sous Vide cooker. Used it on steaks. Wow. Like butter.

Thinking it should be great for game meat.

Anyone else using Sous Vide (water cooker) for cooking game?

Not personally, but I have friends that swear by it and I've tasted the results. It's the real deal. I'm a big green egg guy, so I haven't bought the sous vide.....yet

Hello my fellow "martial artisans",

This is not a hunting story but a one for the old soldiers. My grandfather, now just hanging in there at 100, had a bit of a hiccup with his health at 95 on his way to the double 'possible'. So I decided to take up target shooting as a way of honouring the man who was also the captain of our most successful New Zealand team in history and hopefully give him something to keep buggering on for as he puts it.

It turned out to be the most challenging and extraordinary year of my life. I will cut a long story short with a photo. All executed with his old target rifle, trophies now engraved with both of our names forever. I could not have been more humbled and more proud.

The shooting family is a very special brotherhood.
Bless you all.

I am too, the sous vide goes with a BGE like butter on a potato and they're only about $100.

For steaks:

I vacuum seal (if marinating) and leave in the refrigerator.

Take out the meat still in vacuum bag and drop into sous vide and bring to internal temp.

Put on the BGE (very hot) to sear all sides for just a couple of minutes.

Amaze guests.

*Same process as above except substitute a fryer for the BGE makes amazing fried chicken that is super easy to do because you just worry about the crust and not cooking the chicken through.

Yep! It works. Works well. But can't be used as the sole cooking step. Almost every protein I've water bathed required some sort of "finish" to make it awesome.

Happy National Public Land Day!
