Congrats on your hunt. I was thinking about picking up a cow tag. I shouldn't have looked at this thread though. I may not resist the temptation. Congrats again. :thumbsup1:

Thanks

Gents, for the comments. Hawkeye, the meat all came out allright. Fortunately she went down in a well shaded creek bottom area. I got to her within ten minutes and got her open and the guts out in about 30 minutes. A little tough as I was by myself but I knew, I had to get her cool quickly. After that I quickly got her quarters off for more cooling and got the backstraps and tenderloins out other meat off her and bagged. As soon as the horses got the meat back to camp we got it hung in the shade and I got down to skinning the quarters. Fried up some back strap Thursday and it was damn good.
