Thanks, Robert! We've talked about javelina here in the past. Wish I could get elk like I do javelina!

Whitetail hunters can't understand how big one of these things is until they see it on the ground.

Hind quarters BIGGER than some of the Pennsylvania doe I shoot each year.

It's a different game . Take the easy ones when you can!

Yeah, I've harvested 4 cows, and I can't even imagine what a bull would be like. Lots of meat.

donw, I can tell you the difference in one simple sentence. A good bit more meat but the cows taste much much much much better! I'd take those 4 cows you have harvested over a bull every day of the week and twice on Sunday. The old man had a favorite saying, "I aint seen a rack even make good soup"

We don't even apply for bull hunts, mainly because we'd rarely get drawn, and we just want to hunt. And I really love elk meat! I always say "you can't eat antlers".
