    Hi guys, I am working on an elk European, and wondering if any one has any tips on where to get a big enough container to work on that? The one I have is only big enough for a white tail. Any tips are greatly appreciated!

    You can use those metal washtubs but make sure to do this OUTSIDE!!!. The galvanized coating burns off and is poisonous. You can also cut a 50 gal drum down. Or you can rot it clean.

    Use a wash tub like Sea Wolf said. Thats what I'm using for my bison and it works great! They are like 20 bucks at Home Depot.

    Tractor Supply has them for about $20 bucks too. They'll do 3-4 small deer and 2-3 large ones at a time. Well worth the small investment.
