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!
