We need the FSIS and the USDA to recognise Elk meat as a viable meat.... this would eliminate the inspection fees imposed on elk raisers to get the meat fairly inspected as well as take the "license" for processors to charge exhorbant fees for processing, thus allowing Elk meat to have a fighting chance in the marketplace. However, I doubt this will happen as it seems to "threaten" the import market for Red Deer meat from down under and possibly being opposed by domestic meat producers as well since we have THE meat that would be most likely to survive in the current market due to it's low fat content and high omega 3 content. So see what you can do and all the luck be with you!
