I’ve heard there are different types of “fun” people can experience. It was the third form of fun that a wilderness elk hunt in the Colorado Rockies provided last fall. Upon reflection, I must attest that it was the most difficult, yet most fun hunt I could ever ask for.
In North America, there are three primary subspecies of elk: the American elk (Cervus canadensis spp.), which grow the largest antlers; the Roosevelt’s elk (Cervus canadensis roosevelti) of the coastal areas of the northwest, which are the largest bodied elk; and the smaller tule elk (Cervus canadensis nannodes) of the valleys of central California.
There is a reason that the antlers of the Elk have graced the crests and flags of our ancestors as prolifically as they have. Majestic in every way, their regal crowns signify that they are the king of the forest.
On this episode, Adam and Wardo discuss the soon to be released Beyond the Kill film series and Wardo shares some thoughts on wild game cooking as well as some simple, practical tips he’s learned on how to make better use of the meat we bring home.
