This was the first animal in a long time that I didn’t debone so it was my first chance to try it (on the bone). I made something similar a few years ago with them boneless but I think this was better.
Bone in shanks are becoming a rarity with the spread of CWD. My Selway bull last year was my first bone in shanks from elk in a while.Ive started saving the shank parts even if I cut them off the bone. I don’t think it’s quite as good as a bone in shank but still good

Many states prohibit the importation of deer/elk bones from a CWD state.One of the butchers here in Denver won't do them anymore, they're not allowed to use saws in their processing. Not sure if it's a state regulation or a shop rule...
Maybe its overkill but I don't cut any bones anymore when butchering.
