That is quit a job you are undertaking.
If you have never done the brain tan thing before I would have started out on something a lot smaller than an elk, like maybe a cat or dog size, rabbit, coon, etc.
It looks like you have the right crew for the job.

Ribka this was the result of 'extensive' training...I mean begging! She'll walk with me under the following conditions:
- warmer than 65 degrees
- fairly open and no brush or trees to bust through (deathly afraid of spiders and webs)
- must stop at every fruit stand...yes 'every'!
- The return drive must have adequate time for shopping.
Andrew-great picture! Looks like she was borrowing your vest! (but then, they don't sell hunting vests at Nordies last time I looked.) My sweetheart is off today for 10 days in AZ with her sisters who each have a winter house down there, so you know I will be hunting and fishing next weekend! Rick
