You'll need to be a little more specific to get some good advice. Are you a resident or non-resident? What are your goals for the hunt? If you're looking for a trophy, how is that defined by you? Wilderness, DIY, drop camp? Lots of details left up the air.
Give us a bit more on what you want for this elk hunt and I'm sure many others will be happy to provide some advice.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
