Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum and elk hunting as I just moved to CO 2 years ago and am going on my first elk hunt for a 2nd rifle bull in 22/23. I grew up hunting whitetail in Tennessee and North Carolina so this is a new world for me. My question is if I get an elk how big of a freezer will I need to fit all the meat in there? I'm confident processing it myself as I've always done my whitetail myself and know it will be a lot of work. I'm just concerned that my 7.8 cu ft freezer won't be quite big enough and might need a second.
Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks
