If you haven't gone more than a few times.....and expect to be successful.....hire an outfitter and the guide. You might try reading some of the good books on it . They all state the obvious,if you live it and hunt it every year,the average success rate is ...12% It is not like the videos,unless you pay for a guide and privacy.And even then any guide worth spit will tell you right off " No Garuntee's". Good luck and good hunting!
Sorry Henry but that's not true for a limited entry unit. You can very easily guide yourself on a limited entry hunt and have success.
The 12% you speak of would be true for a general OTC tag.
