If you plan on applying and are drawn for a hunt I certainly wouldn't be opposed to accepting any elk meat you'd like to share. Without a doubt, elk is the absolute best, hands down!
It's been a while since I've had any and I'm thinking some homemade jerky, chili, burgers and steaks would be perfect. But, only if you run out of room in your freezer.
