I'm in the process of planning my first archery elk hunt as we speak. We've narrowed down our zone of choice and we're scouting it using Colorado's DOW interactive GMU maps, info from the local biologist and Google Earth.

We're VERY pumped up already and can't wait to go!

I'm looking into Montana for next year they have guarenteed outfitter tags, but they are super expensive.

I just checked it out and its $1400 for the guaranteed tag. That's not bad for a guarantee unless you were doing this every year. Course, that doesn't include the outfitter.

Our elk tags are guaranteed too, they are sold over-the-counter at any licensing agent! And they are only $526.00 dollars!

found an outfitter in mt it's like $4200 including cost of tags. low deposit which I like. It allows me to book the hunt now and save $(without the wife knowing) for nest could like 10 references and most have hunted multiple times and nothing but good things to say. Wouldn't mine colorado but I have numerous airmiles saved for alaska airlines that flies to missoula but not anywhere in Colorado.

I better get saving some money. the price seems way out there for a hunt. I live in Hawaii it cost almost 1K just to jump on the ground in the mainland.
Maybe one day, I'll find my self out looking at a bull face to face, or broadside with him having no clue I exist in the country.

Untill then, I'll keep hunting the poor mans grizzly, I can hunt those 365 here. so it's not that bad.
Maybe one day I'll work out a swap with someone.

Untill then, I'll keep on keepen on. There's elk in them there hills.
