for $5K, you could go a DYI hunt in like 3 states. No brainer, elk hunt (or two)

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.

Elk. The high lasts a lot longer than the thrill of a new rifle.

I have a rifle and have never been on an elk hunt(not likely to ever be able to afford one)....so it would be a super easy choice for me.

ELK HUNT!!!

ELK HUNT!!!


If you have 5 days vacation, You can afford an elk hunt. Itís as expensive or as cheap as you want to make it.




Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Hunt without a doubt. Like someone once said on here, donít buy things, buy experiences.

For that kind of money, I can go on 2 elk hunts in Colorado.

Someday, you'll be too old and fat to go elk hunting. You'll never be to old to buy another rifle.

Easy choice Buzz... you already got a safe (or two) full of guns. Get out there and bag an elk while your health is still up to the adventure!


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Flip a coin. It's going to take you forever to figure out which rifle to get or where to hunt. But....if you do kill an elk, you probably won't be able to trade it off..

Buzz if you want a good Elk hunt check out Bobby Hill's ranch in south central Colorado. Hunt of a lifetime.
