2013 elk and/or deer hunt

Im looking to see if anyone would be interested in going on a guided elk or elk/deer hunt in 2013. Preferably, out west but also open to Canada.

I was going to go this year but unforseen circumstances caused my hunt partner to back out this year and I missed the season.

Im open to discussing rides, sites, outfitters etc. I live near Pittsburgh so it would probably be easier if we were both in W PA but could work out what we want to do.

PM me if you are interested and need a partner or can add another hunter to your elk party.

How much does one of these trips usually cost? I know it isn`t cheap, but I have never done such a trip. Thanks.

Bottom end probably $3500.00! Higher end could be way up there!

Like Big28 said.... Hunts will definitely vary and 3500 would be on the low end.
A good start is Larry at PHA- he is a sponser on HPA and his hunts can be seen on his web site .

Re: 2013 elk and/or deer hunt

I'm also looking to tag along with someone on an Elk hunt (my first) out west. I live in SE PA. I will consider a DIY hunt, with others that have done it before. I have a budget of around 3K. PM me if your looking for someone to fill out a group.

Im leaning toward an outfitter. I know DIY are cheaper but my time to scout and research is limited.
