Im actually starting real early. A couple friends and I are planning on a elk hunting trip in 2010. Im starting to look at the statistic and try to narrow down where we want to go. The plan is to do an otc rifle bull hunt. Im kinda confused though...do the units that offer otc tags stay the same every year? and is it possible to get either a cow tag also or an either sex tag otc? I would love to get some antlers but I would hate to only be limited to bull(I really want to put meat in the freezer). Most likely we will be hiking in several miles and doing a remote camp hunt. I looked into several drop camps but they are all over 1000 per person and thats a little much for us.
So if you have any suggestions on where to start that would be great.
