I hunt elk every year I get drawn (and tag along on the years that I don't) with my wife's family in the bitterroot valley. They live in Stevensville, MT. Usually someone in the family gets a bull. I've helped drag them out but have yet to pull the trigger on one. Rifle hunting them this fall but next year I'm finally submitting to my brother-in-laws request and I'm going to bowhunt them with him. He calls them in. Should be a good learning experience for me, and from what he says will offer me the best chance to finally bag my first bull. Elk...talk about some tough hunting! I'm always ready to get on the plane and go home after a week of chasing around those ghosts!

Me,
Love to hunt them, I have done archery and rifle, and have only been successful with a rifle so far. If I could afford it, I would hunt elk, every fall until I was too old to make it up and down the mountains. If you have never done it, try it, when you in the mix of bulls bugling it is one of the most awesome things to experience.
Shame there are none here in Indiana

I'm no expert, but I have been elk hunting a number of times. Always out of Colorado, but this year will be CO and MT and I am excited about it!

From everything that I see posted or talked about it seems like it is a royal pain or near impossible to get tags in most places. I seem to remember watching one of the hunting shows recently where the host said that he had been trying to get a tag for over 10 years.

I think that I would just about have given up at that point and just gone down to the local grocery store and bought a state lottery ticket for a better chance at winning something.

I have hunted elk for over 30 years now, my dad took me on my first elk hunt when I was 8 years old.

I go elk hunting for myself every year and I also guide hunters every year. I have been a licensed outfitter in Colorado since 2002 and a guide since 1984!

Colorado has OTC elk tags for Archery season (Either-Sex), 2nd Rifle season (Bull) & 3rd Rifle season (Bull).
