DISCLAIMER - If you have ever seen an elk, you know that "tossing" an elk is quite difficult. An adult male elk can weigh 800 lb. We do not "toss" elk without proper safety harnesses and have never even touched an elk without these devises. We do not wish to harm the magnificent elk or ourselves in any way. Please do not attempt to toss an elk at home.
