They had a busy day, and a calf elk and calf moose will need butchering later this week. This is good news. Extremely good news.
And before you wonder how it is we need so much game – keep in mind that the animals are generally split between hunters. So we’ll only be tackling and consuming a side of each of the recent kills. And those sides will supply both my dad and my family.
An additional issue this year is that there’s a very good chance I may not be able to go up for a calf hunt next year – which means having an ample stock in the freezer is important to us. Mission accomplished.
