Pappy would you rather shoot a young bull than an older one? At this stage in our lives tender meat is better than antlers.

Pappy, do y'all have a lottery for the different permits or can you buy your choice. Sure is a great view on the property there.

Yes, I would take the "rag horn" over the big 6 point. Even a spike would work. The rag horn is,a 3 year old and larger bulls can be 4-7 years old. Lucille shot a huge cow elk many years ago and we stopped at a check station. The game warden took out a tooth to age it and said it was the oldest cow elk he had ever aged at 18 years old, and he had been checking for 28 years. I figured that was going to be one tough cow elk, but it was as tender as any I have harvested.

In Idaho, you must declare which elk unit that you are going to hunt. Most all elk units have an open season, but some have a limit on number of tags. Some sell out in 15 minutes, depending on location. I put in for a late black powder bull hunt, 50 tags. They only had 25 cow tags, so I went for the bull and lucked out. Last year I didn't draw on elk, but drew on a late black powder buck hunt and got a little 3 point. I burgered the whole thing but mixed 50/50 beef burger 80/20. Best burger ever.
