I don't hunt the muleys where I live cause I'm surrounded by Monsanto corn fields. Rather have my deer coming from the mountains where all they eat is the natural forage.
Got it out whole??

Look at Walden, CO on the map. Driving any where around there any time of year you gotta be careful not to hit them on the highway. Buddy of mine said he got chased 10 miles down a frozen river on his snowmobile by an angry moose. They are there, just not a lot of tags given out for em each year. Hunting in Colorado is way more complicated than Texas. Trying to get some relatives to go in on some hunting ground in Texas, but no luck so far.

Quarters, Backstrap, and tenderloin. Hiked it to camp, let it hang for a day, drove it home, let it hang some more, processed it myself.

I'm not an expert, but there is no gamey taste to this meat at all.

I'm all ears for advice though.

Biggest thing i've found is getting it cooled down as fast as you can. Whole elk take a long time to cool no matter what temp it is. I've seen green meat overnight in 30 degrees. Ground reflects alot of heat.

30 was the high in the middle of the day. Low overnight was about zero.
It twas a cold night in the sleeping bag in the wall tent. By luck or skill, it worked out well this time. Hung it the shade of the pines at camp. Once home hung it in the barn where temps averaged 30 degrees, no direct sunlight. Just got lucky this time?

As long as you get the hide off and meat starts cooling. I've hung quarters in 50's for a day and still tasted fine. Getting it 1/4'd asap makes a big difference. I usually have more problems because of flies!!(archery)

Yep, skin and quarter is how I was taught. Packing the dang thing out even in quarters is a huge process at 10000' above sea level. Took two of us two trips and 5 hours to get it all.

1st rifle can be a crap shoot for weather forecast. Flies were a huge problem 2 years ago when a companion got a bull elk and it was still in the 60s. This year was friggin cold for 1st rifle.

I like moose roasts. Turns out sweet and tender. Elk always tasted like deer to me, except sweeter.

Re: Things I Love


That my city council still seems to care about issues brought to there attention by it's residents. Had some concerns regarding utilities and the landlords responsibility of unpaid balances by a tenant. I was able to have an active discussion with the members and they decided it was an ongoing and important enough issue to put it on the utility council's next meeting. The mayor came out to my partner and I after the meeting to thank us for bringing it up at the meeting and said he is on board to get things moving forward for an improved policy.

Stay up their ass, Andy. Being involved on committee levels keeps good men in-the-know and making the decisions

Good on you

Re: Things I Love


it's the landlord's responsibility, once bill is over 30 days, email sent to property owner, he can deduct it from deposit and start eviction process.

shouldn't be city chasing down bad bills, especially when it's income generating property. that's why the landlord makes the big bucks.

To pay utility bills? **** no it's not, Gene.

Where I live it's a co-op. City wouldn't be involved

Either way - I ain't paying that MFs bills.

Just like liens never go to tenants. They are attached to the property. Regardless of who's fault it was was.

Re: Things I Love


our utilities are municipal/city owned.

so, by your line of thinking, a landlord should be able to collect rents, but not bear any consequence to tenant not paying bill? then i get to pay it.

only choice is at 31 days you unplug them.
