Agree with moleman. Good hunting and good shooting! It takes a special dedication to harvest elk with a bow.
Meat-hunter here, too. Young, mature (around 2 y/o) buck or fat barren doe. The best steaks, better than prime beef as far as I'm concerned.
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
