You made your shot, now what?

I usualy enjoy the moment for a few minutes and look at the animal, but right after i slit the throat, then if its far away i gut it and grab it by the horns and start dragging.

Well, I just sit next to the lifeless carcass petting it, sobbing uncontrollably, and apologize to the itty bitty wittle critter. (just joking-well, except the sobbing part) Laugh

Actually, I just thank god for the hunt and ATVs. I field dress the animal, load it up and haul it to the meat locker. We have a locker here that will skin and care for the trophy if applicable. It cost a whopping $10 more for them to skin and cape it out, so for me it's worth it. Plus they have a lot more experience caping the trophy than I do so there is less chance of me not leaving enough hide on it. I would advise checking with your local meat locker and see if that is an option.

Good luck hunting, and sorry for the sick attempt at being funny!

I'd just cut off the head, skin it, bleach it, and keep the skull with the antlers on, I prefer these over head mounts

First i turn the lights off and drag it out of the road then load in truck and haul a---out of there. Naw just kidding according to what i just killed, most elk you have to pack out and it is a job.

I usually turn to the camera and give the "thumbs up."

The villagers take care of the rest.

Just kiddin'.
