Looks good but try and take a few more pictures that aren't so grainy so we can see it better. And maybe get your big pumpkin out of the way! :P

nice.  How was the drive home from the taxidermist?  If not in an enclosed trailer you get a few looks, a few beeps and thumbs up and thumbs down when driving home.

My shoulder is sore this morning. Getting it that high on the wall and lack of help , holding it by the horns dint work  . I ended up putting it on my shoulder and doing it my self

Very nice and any elk like that one in my eyes is a trophy animal, it's something I'll never have the opportunity to save up for and hunt so very nice and I think it looks great !  One thing I always wonder in the elk world is kinda how old a animal is that ? I'll spare the "old enough to shoot" answer lol.

OTC I'm not sure how old the elk was , I'd guess around 4 years old 

As far as cost and saving up , the hunt was on public land , about $1024 for the license, and about $600 in gas , food , beer and ice
