Okay, if you want to go on a meat hunt, and don't want to drop big $$$$ on an outfitter, what would your choice be for a state. I live in Southern CA, so AZ, NV, CO, UT, and NM are all okay drives. I know AZ and NV might be lottery only, as well as maybe NM. Don't know if I'd want to waste a draw for a "meat" hunt.
I have hunted only one time for elk, that was in Oregon. It was a Any bull general rifle tag, and the success rate wasn't great.
What type of hunt would you try for? Either sex, cow, archery, rifle, muzzleloader (Have all 3).
What say you?
