Putting a big bull elk on the ground takes a good plan; getting your bull home to the freezer and taxidermist in good shape takes a really good plan. Don’t get stuck on the side of a mountain with a dead bull without a solid plan of action. Elk are big animals. A guy with a poor plan can muddle through a deer or antelope kill with a sharp knife and some elbow grease, but to break down an elk and do it efficiently - well, that takes some thought and practice.
