Oak,

Was she a "dry cow"? As we all know that a good cow hunter will pick out the dry ones, as they are the best eating.... smilies/rolleyes.gif But congrats on the "lead cow", always important to whack that one.... smilies/wink.gif

And even better, I like to see the chest shot. It kills me to read people trying to shoot head shots and neck shots..... I am glad somebody knows how to anchor an Elk, and keep her where you want her. smilies/smile.gif smilies/elkgrin.gif

Kudos to you!!!

Oak, Congratulations! And I was thinking the same thing about the lung shot when I saw the picture. How far from the road were ya? We all know a good cow hunter will always get them uphill from the road and real close to it! smilies/biggrin.gif

Since I didn't manage to find a legal bull in the two days I had to hunt earlier this fall, I went out and filled the freezer earlier this week. She was the lead cow, she'll taste great, and you can't eat the horns anyway. smilies/wink.gif smilies/tongue.gif



To give you an idea of the type of country I was hunting...

Congratulations on a successful hunt.

Over the years I have taken twice as many cows as bulls. I would like to take a cow every year and I have had a bull tag and a cow tag every year for ten years. But I have filled only one cow tag and 5 bull tags since 1998. Maybe the cows have gotten wise to me.

That looks like rugged country. I hope you didn't have to hawl that cow uphill. Where abouts were you hunting?
