I hunted the Castles a fair bit in college, and the Crazies probably just once or twice. Never saw an elk in either place, not even in the back of someone's truck, but got into some decent deer hunting every once in awhile, just never put it all together. Can't say I really knew what I was doing back then though.
I live near the Crazies. I have never hunted them before. Not sure if they changed the tags to draw only or not. Plenty of elk, and no grizzley bears. More pressure from rifle hunters cause the elk to move to private lands. Still plenty of public land to hunt. Watch out for the high winds!
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
