Hello!! I am knew to this forum but have been viewing it for quite sometime. It seems to a top notch forum.
I'm an avid deer hunter and want to look at doing a DIY cow hunt. I have hunted WY and SD for whitetails and am interested now in doing a cow hunt. Not sure which state to even consider at this point. I am looking at the three states listed above. I have talked to a few guys back home here and have been told lots of different things. Everything from DIY on public, to doing a drop camp, to doing a guided hunt.
I have hunted in national and state forests back home here in MN but nothing in the mountains out west. I am hoping to get some feedback from anyone on what I should be considering in dong a DIY cow elk hunt. Its kind of confusing as far as some areas/states where you need to apply to be drawn, other areas you don't. Then there is landowner tags that I am not that up on.
I know it takes more work planning out a hunt than the actual hunt sometimes takes but i am willing to work at this as it is something I really want to do here in the near future. So.....any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
