it sure is alot of work he killed about noon on saturday we got done packing meat out at 4pm sunday,WY area 47 opens Sunday...Hope to have my deer and goat tags filled prior to the elk opener.
Tell your buddy congrats...and good luck to you. Few folks realize the effort and full experience in pursuing these critters.
As far as taking a bite out of the heart...that is for virgin elk hunters. My dues have already been paid.
