Species Account Note I hit the elk with my Dollar rent a car. near Tower Creek north of
Salmon. I filled a report with the local county sheriff's
deputy. Because the animal could not move (broken legs?) I enlisted
my neighbor to help kill it - it was subsequently shot, by Bill
Bernt, who will do the salvage.
