Cool expanding your horizons! I have heard Mulies don't taste that great. Never had it, just heard. Hope it is good on the plate.
The farm elk I have had is also blah. No hope to try the wild but that isn't a possibility.
As far as ATVer's it only takes a few to ruin it for the rest of them. I'm glad the county I live in promotes the silent sports, like making bike trails.
