I'm interested in going on a guided elk hunt next fall. I really don't have a preference as to distance from home, but I'm really not looking at HF stuff, more interested in heading west.
Does anyone have experience with an outfitter that you'd recommend?
Just returned a few weeks ago from my first guided hunt in Montana in the Bearpaw mountains at the Faber Ranch and couldn't be happier with them and their operation but they kind of specialize in mulies. I just don't know where to look or how to find a good outfitter in a good area, and I'm not looking to spend $10k or whatever and not really looking for a 400" bull or anything. Just a solid operation, opportunities for decent Bulls, good scenery and since you usually get what you pay for, not the cheapest operation out there. Not wanting to completely rough it with tents or anything but it doesn't have to be the Biltmore either.
Do any of you have some experience and recommendations?
We kept it as a pet for several months until it got run over by a truck. Then we ate him.
