Man that looks good. I'm a smoked bacon fan and throw that into the burger to get that bacon-cheeseburger smell when it cooks and provide a little cooking grease.

You are the man. Processing elk is no easy task. A lot of work but very rewarding!

20-Sep-21
Justin, that is more than cute. I need a helper like that. Is she for hire? :)

Paul, as there is quite a bit of meat in the neck area on these beasts, I was wondering where it ends up in your prossessing system (hamburger, stew ??). What is your advice as to what works out the best for you ? Bob

21-Sep-21
Bob, I have never done a neck roast, so that neck meat goes in the grind pile and maybe some in the stew meat bag. One great thing about wonderful elk meat, it will ALL end up on the plate. Yum!

Elk. It's what's for dinner! Good job Paul!

I processed my elk last year and I was honestly shocked at how much time it took compared to a deer. To me it is like processing about 4-5 deer.

That is great stuff all around.

I can 'almost' taste that burger, looks great.

Are the specs on that recurve set-up somewhere? thanks

Dana, read my story on the elk conference, titled Bucket List Bull. Specs included.

Paul, Did you happen all of the processed meat? I just wondered how many pounds of meat you ended up with?

From: LBshooter

Nicely done. A buddy of mine took a bull this year and after all the work got a positive CWD test, meat has to go.

10-Oct-21
Well done sir!

From: Bowboy
10-Oct-21
Nicely done Paul!

Jake, The rule of thumb is , 1/3 of the body weight = deboned meat. I would expect this bull weighted 600+ #. so the yield would be 200# of usable meat. Then trim off here and there, end up with 175# of meat.

I had 55# of ground burger, and the rest into steaks, roasts, stew meat, back straps, tenderloins. I did not trim or bring out the ribs or rib meat. Lots of good, natural wild game meat. Yum x 10..

Just finished up processing all of mine yesterday. Huge task, but very rewarding. I had some help from my 13 yr. old son and we made some great memories and he will now have some ownership when it is served in meals throughout the year. Great thread. Processing is by no means easy and there are times when you question if the time and effort is worth it, but that's usually short-lived for me.

Looks beautiful, Paul !

Enjoy every bite of that fine table fare, with your Wife/Family and Friends!

Paul,

You have heard it frequently, and deservedly so, you are truly an inspiration!

Thanks for sharing your adventures, they are always sprinkled with humility and loads of fun to follow!

Paul I didn’t think I could be more jealous of your recurve bull but I stand corrected after seeing all that delicious meat!
