Let's start with:
What size buck are you looking for?
How much do you want to spend?
That will give us a starting point.
Just give me a price range and I'll decide If I want to spend that.
I think my top end would be 5k and that would take a lot if convincing for the wife
If it can be done without an outfitter it would obviously be cheaper but if I'm going I want to have the best chance I can for success. If I can get in a good unit I wouldn't mind doing it myself if I still had a good shot at getting the deer I'd be after.
