My husband and one other hunter harvested elk yesterday. My husband's was way down in a steep draw, so they parted it out into 6 pieces to haul from the woods. Luckily there was plenty of help as that is how this group works, all pitching in together. The other elk was brought out whole using a chain saw winch, slowly pulling it on the snow from the woods to the road. Then it was taken apart here and hung in the cooler where it will hang for a week or more and then we cut and wrap it for the year's meat. No pictures, yet, though I may post one later. Meanwhile, I am transplanting choi, lettuce, cabbage, kale, and broccoli plants for late winter greens. The last of the tomatoes are ripening and I have a few more peppers to pick.
