Just found the site today as a friend pointed me in your direction. Great lookin site with a lot of valuble info. Duck hunting is my passion, but I love hunting big game as well.
Myself and a couple of friends are looking for an elk hunt in 2009. We have always wanted to do a horse pack trip for bugling elk. Hunting a bugling elk has ALWAYS been on my list of things to do......and since I'm not going out anytime soon to buy a pack of horses and mules, an outfitter is the way we are gonna go.
Right now we are looking at Unit 27, 26, 20A and 17. My main thing is Elk, but the combo hunting is great with mule deer and bear in the area, and the possiblity is there. I have heard that Unit 27 had fires in 2000, 04' and again this past year in 07'. The fires should make for good hunting, but has that many fires put a hurtin on the population along with the bad winter last year.
We are tryin to narrow our search down so we can get started with an outfitter ASAP. Does anyone have any info for outfitters in that area or just general info for those particular units. Thanks!!!
