How can hunters take elk for free?

-A A +A

A few years ago I spent four years and several thousand dollars to kill a bull elk in Montana with a bow and arrow.
Stupid me.
In Virginia, deer hunters can do it for nothing. Not one, but four.
We have four different deer seasons, with four deer tags on the table and you can buy extra tags. No other place on the planet can you take an elk for free.
Now, if you think this is a good thing, you should know that Virginia has in place an Elk restoration program.
I am reasonably sure a dead elk cannot reproduce. This is pure stupidity.
