OMG, elk is WONDERFUL!!!!! It's so mild, it's almost sweet. I'm used to venison which can have a tang of wild in it, though if properly aged, it's OK, but it sure the heck ain't ELK! If you ever have a chance to harvest an elk, I'd highly recommend it! That chili was better than beef, let alone venison! I mean I love venison, but boy, I'm looking forward to a little elk backstrap. Talk about your meat candy!
Which gives me an idea, I need to make some jerky.
