I'm planning on going to Wyoming next year for a mule deer/elk hunt, purchasing a general license (archery). I feel pretty comfortable for my mule deer, as I have hunted the Shirley Mountains before with my dad (I was the helper, never the hunter). I would like to get a general elk license, but I have had people tell me I am wasting my money. Has anyone hunted around Medicine Bow for elk with a general elk tag? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I want to make sure I am making a wise investment.
