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

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
