    I had elk off & on as a teenager in Idaho. It's very lean, dries out easily in cooking so best cooked smothered in something. If you like liver, elk liver is fantastic.

    From what I've been told elk meat is very low in fat and cholesterol. My friend hasn't gotten one in years - not sure if he's given up or doesn't have time to go hunting much anymore. The beautiful Northwest is worth the trip even if you don't get to eat any elk. Our salmon is awesome!

    Depending on the time of year, Salmon are also much easier to catch! I loved Idaho, a long time ago in a previous life, I was married to a girl from Lewiston. That is a pretty area, and then right up the panhandle to Couer D'alene for lunch on the lake. Wonderful country Idaho.

    I spent 8 years in Moscow, 30 miles north on the goat trail. We used to go elk hunting in the area now covered by Dworshak Reservoir. The elk quarters (minimally about 350-400 pounds total for a small elk) had to be packed down the mountain on the north side of the river & then ferried over the river (opening day of elk season was on the north side of the river, road & campsite on the south side).
