Moose is incredible, but the last elk burger I ate was a shore lunch grilled up on the banks of the Madison River out of Ennis MT. Thanks for taking me back there talking about elk....

I might put in for that today.

Glad to hear the opinions on cow elk. Thought about it for a while, and put in for both the bull and cow firearm hunts. Figured it would be well worth the meat, although to be honest, if I were drawn I wouldn't know step two to save my life.

I am thinking hard about doing that myself. I'd just like to have the "problem" of having to plan the hunt. This is only my second year of applying.

I should start working on my bow skills (and equipment) so that I can boost my odds. My bow isn't really up to snuff for elk.

Believe me, no guide is needed. When I drew, it was a cow tag, and you could take her with a bow during bow season, or hunt the firearm season, or the last bow season. I took a cow that probably dressed about 600lbs. I bet I passed at least 10 different bulls, 5x5s or better within 40 yds, and had a monster 8x8 two days in range. Seen hundreds of Elk, not near as wild as western Elk. Most of the Elk are on coal mine property, they give you a free permit and map. They even came and helped me load my elk with a loader. The least amount of work Ive ever done packing an Elk out. The Bull tag is a LONG shot, cow archery is a ball!

If I could change my choices I would have put in for both cow tags...
