Yeah, but I bet the liver was to die for. And the thymus glands are always the biggest, and the best tasting, on an elk calf.I'd not agree on little ones being good eating. I got a little calf like that one year. It was a late season calf, and January when I got him. Thing was so skinny, no meat, no backstraps to think of. I got one small roast from each hind quarter, and maybe 20 pounds worth of scrap that I ground into burger.

Thanks fellas. 16 replies so far. I posted my smallest elk story on MM; got 3 replies, the last one was from the Moderator when he kicked me off.
Cool story.LMAO, sounds like one of my hunts.
My calf was right about that size. Was working in on a herd of elk that unfortunately busted out of the area. I was a little PO'd about it frankly... sat down in the shade of a tree. Wasn't 2 or 3 more minutes when the entire herd came charging right back down the trail in front of me. Good thing I had the old 7STW with my trusty 6.5-20 long range scope... those elk were at least 45 yards. Picked out a smaller fuzzy looking one with the pretty golden hair and pulled the trigger.
Didnt have nearly the grueling drag through 5" of snow though :mrgreen:. Very tasty though, one of the best.
