Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I for one like picking out my own meat for the most part. I can barely trust my wife to buy our vittles.

I visited an elk farm in Colorado the other day. $1,500 gets you a cow elk. You can have it processed, or use his processor for $275.

Actually, not a bad deal if you ask me. Figure a cow elk has around 700-800 lbs of meat on it. And it would be really tender, as the animal isn't running around the forest, but is on a 60 acre pasture.

Friend of my dad's said he could buy a processed elk from indians on the reservation for $800.00.

Geez I never heard of the Butcher Box Sanders?
But that elk deal sounds great. Works out to under $2.50 a pound and elk is about the best meat I ever ate.

Question Sanders check this out.

For the record, the University of Wyoming study is on the Rocky Mountain subspecies of elk. For these elk, a field dressed weight (defined as viscera and feet removed) is 70% of the live weight and field dressed weights range from 176 lbs for a calf to 540 lbs to mature bulls and yield between 88 to 270 lbs of boneless meat.

Boned skinned minus the head hooves etc. their is quite a reduction in edible meat. Even with good processing the price for the meat could push it to $7 to $10 a pound? Not sure if my math is correct someone get out their calculator if they would?

Then if you figure in the cost of elk tags, the hunt (if it is outfitted by a professional guide and outfitter), time off for the hunt, gear and processing, you are looking at some pretty big $$ for your "free" (if you hunt public lands) elk meat.

Kind of makes the $1,500 look like chump change once it is put into perspective.
