ok so lets see.. I have been target shooting since 15. Two yrs ago got into hunting deer and hogs. was working at a golf course to hog trap and shoot. I got my trapping license a yr ago. Had a bear tag this last year but didnt get a chance to get one. I would love to hunt other animals if given the chance.

Sounds like you are starting

Sounds like you are starting off on the right foot.  I have been trying to get out for some pigs myself, but I am a little far south here in San Diego to have a realistic shot at them.  Gotta head up your direction.

Have you put in for any of the Elk or Antelope hunts up your way?  Tough to draw, but worth a try.

Well, there are is no

Well, there are is no shortage of elk hunters on here, especially in the Colorado area.  From what I have seen, that would probably be your best place to break into elk hunting.  As for finding a partner, stick around here, be active, and who knows what offers you may get.  I already have tons of info ready when I pull the trigger on my elk hunt, plus an offer to hunt coues whitetail in Arizona, and a few other things.  It's a great site!

And, just put in for elk this June here in CA.  Most likely, you will just start building points.  If you are fortunate and actually draw one, then the DFG here is very good at sitting down with you and helping you locate herds, putting you in touch with locals out there, etc.  It's not nearly as difficult a hunt, terrain wise, as a true rocky mountain hunt.
