I am dying to plan a 2012 hunt out west but do not really know where to start.
Who all on this forum are guides that can provide details on what you will offer in 2012 for elk hunts?
I know I need to start now (2011) to apply for hunts - at least I will have two years to work toward getting a permit... but I do not know which area to apply for...
Any and all details are appreciated!
Seems to make sense to try to use someone on this forum - at least this is a way to get to know a guide....
I can not afford a full blown guided hunt - at least I do not think I can... but a horse trip, a camp in the Rockies and a 2:1 guided hunt is what I am shooting for (pun intended).
I would consider rifle or bow... although I am shooting only 62 lbs with the bow - not sure if that is adequate for the elk? The bow will go to 70 lbs and I can probably work up that, particularly if I am shooting off of the ground... and not from a tree stand like we do out here in the east.
