    Thank you.
    D55, actually split it with my hunting partner so didn’t fill the freezer yet, lol. Soon I have mule deer and a moose draw that kick in, so even with sharing them THEY will fill the freezer!

    Good job! That had to be a blast.
    I have killed elk with bow and center fire. One of these days I will try for a smokepole elk.

    Thanks. It was very exciting, but took basically 10 days to achieve. I recorded the entire hunt in a journal and uploaded it daily into the sister site (The Muzzleloading Forum), under the hunting sub-forum. Its very in depth and 100% truthful. I did have moments of doubt, lol.
    My first elk was with a bow at 3 yards, ground level. Many since then with centerfire, but this was my first muzzleloader elk.
