Re: Elk Hunt

If you are looking toward Montana. I have hunted out there with Broken Arrow Lodge twice. Once fully guided and the other drop camp. Great outfit and would highly recommend them.

Re: Elk Hunt

The state doesn't matter. We plan on using rifle. Im in average shape but father inlaw may have a little trouble.

Black and gold panther martin with the black and gold blade. They don't paint the blades anymore however.

Yes state does matter, and some instances different regions of states matter because of preference points. Are you trying to go this Fall? If so, you have eliminated a few options because of licenses have already been sold. What are your expectations for the hunt? Are you looking for a trophy bull? Or will a cow or small bull suffice? I know there are some good units in WY where you can draw for rifle with 1 pt. CO has a bunch of OTC units so if you are looking for something for this year that would be your best bet IMO, however your chances at good bull drop dramatically. Also, with a couple members of your group not as mobile as you will limit the areas and outfitters you want to choose from. You may want to look for one that hunts with horses and out of a lodge. A base camp, pack in hunt could also be an option but these are often in a bit more rugged country. PM sent

Re: Elk Hunt

I've made 5 succesful elk hunts here.

A high end hunt price wise (about $6,500) but getting to hunt the rut with weapon of choice is the best.
I am booked starting 9/16 this year.
I save up and go every 3 or so years rather than go more often with a less expensive lower success hunt.

Colorado Ranching for wildlife property loaded wth elk.
Can be tough to get a date a they book up.
This is free range not a fence hunt and you see 5-10 - 5+ point bulls a day.

Not bad physically, there is almost always a senior in camp and I have never seen a hunter not take a bull in my 5 hunts here.

These are my last 3 bulls 2005, 2002, 2009

Re: Elk Hunt

Nice bulls and not a bad price for the hunt you get and the quality of animals.

Re: Elk Hunt

To each their own.I'm not a fan of ranching for wildlife as they take from the do it yourself hunters.If you want an elk hunt as easy as high fence hunting then this hunt would be for you.The 100% success says it all.I'd rather go on a true elk hunt though
