    I don’t care a wit about hunting or shooting one, but would love to eat on one.

    Carrying them out is the fun part. The older the elk the crappier the meat. A mature bull in the middle of the rut is a tough old stinky booger. The backstraps and hanging loins should be good but its tacos, meatloaf and chili for the rest.

    Mmmm, elk chili. That has a nice ring to it.

    What kind of permits are allowed to take a elk cow?

    One of my previous employers gave me a huge Elk roast. Not knowing what to do with it, I cooked it the same as a beef roast. It turned out to be the best roast I have ever tasted! Sure wish I could get a few more.

    From my experience, elk is at the top of the meat eating pecking order unless you get a gristly old bull elk, as Curt warns. I think most of the commercially available elk meat comes from New Zealand and is muy expensive, as one can imagine.

    Dave swears that moose is up there too, but I’ve never had any or been where it was served. I’m sure there are lots of other critters worth trying that Joe has never tasted. I’ll settled for elk anytime though.

    Good question - what is the best wild game/fish/fowl. I vote moose, walleye, gambel quail. Im seriously considering changing my moose vote to bison and my fish vote to mahi though.

    We have elk farms around here and some of the restaurants serve elk. A few bucks a plate more than beef. I guess thats good.

    Elk is good---but moose rocks

    As for fish---I'll take halibut cheeks

    Added in edit:

    I know this is a shooting thread----but the thought of Halibut cheeks makes me do this

    Just for the record: Halibut fishing is NOT sport fishing---it is damn hard work
