Preheat your oven to 400ºF and spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix together the ground elk, onion, breadcrumbs, garlic, eggs, ketchup, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix until just together, making sure not to overmix.
Form into 1-inch balls and place on the baking sheet. Bake until browned and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Pour the barbecue sauce into a large bowl and toss the meatballs in the sauce. Serve on toothpicks.
You can also serve this as a meal with egg noodles.
Make sure to barely mix the meatball mixture. The more you mix, the tougher the meat becomes.
