Old Cow

I killed my 1st Elk last week during the Colorado Muzzleloader season.

Because of 2 day's of rain I was running very low on B P as I had to change my load more than usual and that my powder flask wasn't in camp so after dropping the Cow I had to use the powder in my priming tool to reload for the finishing off shot. One thing nice about that was I knew I had to close my pan cover (frizzen) and the pan self primed.
While waiting for the packs, I boned out one side and then went for the shinny white teeth to find that there was only 1 tooth in the old girl's mouth . Well she had incizers, but no molars.
When my help arrived we started bagging and the milk bags pulled loose and became un-attached.
We then had 3/4 mile hump down to camp and being I put her down at 6pm it was getting real dark in the timber. About 1/3 of the way to camp we run across a couple hunters on horses and here its the local Warden and a friend coming in from a evening hunt.
Well he stops in our camp and checks everything out and has some questions about the sex evidence that's not attached. After confirming that I did know the bags should be attached he let me off.
