    A little fun on my day off. This is the first wild game animal I have shot in my life. I got this cow elk with a CVA Wolf muzzleloader riffle at 150 yards with one shot. I guess it's a medium sized animal for around here, but am certainly one happy camper.
    My buddy that generally gets me one was hell bent on making sure that I succeeded and was with me to help out, that or to tease me on my errors......He didn't get much chance on the teasing part. I thought I had shot a little high, but this cow only made it about 50 foot and was done. Looking her over, we both agreed the shot was nearly perfect.
    The knives shown were both made by my younger brother and are both great. I'll say this for sure, one had better respect the edge on these things or you will be missing parts. Generally while skinning an elk when I have helped out friends, I have had to touch up the edge on a knife, not on these knives I didn't. They stay sharp!

    Thank you.
    Reo had already got me a bull elk that I had processed and is already in the freezer, so this one will be snack sticks, steaks and burger.
    With hamburger at about $4 a pound at the store, this will let me help out a couple friends in a huge way.

    Awesome! Good job man. I wish we could put scopes on our muzzleloaders out here in Washington.

    Great shooting with that smoke pole. An elk is on my bucket list if I can find an affordable hunt.

    I think I'm hooked now, LOL.
    Now I want to use my crossbow and get a deer. We'll see how that plays out.....
