When your young and in great shape to go on a hunt of a lifetime you can't afford it, when you get to the point in your life where you might have the extra money to go on a Hunt, your body says Hell No.. what were you thinking.. lol

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I used to do semi guided or DIY hunts all the time. I like the control aspect of it.

After I was paralyzed in a vehicle accident, it got too hard. This year I'll do Kansas for whitetail (Woodlands Guides), Maine for moose if I draw (Smoldering Lake Outfitters) and Texas for whitetail (Catarosa). Also scheduled for Idaho bear with hounds next May 2014 (Reggear Outfitters) - this one should be borderline insane but I'm dying to do it.

I'd go back to DIY in a minute with the right body. Hard but very rewarding.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I would absolutely love to be able to go on an outfitted hunt, but alas, the cost is simply to high...

I do enjoy do-it-yourself hunts, and I have enough friends and family scattered around the west that should I ever draw a tag I should be able to go hunting, and have some places on which to hunt. Having a young family, I haven't been able to afford many out of state tags yet, but I am hoping to go on my first elk hunt this fall, even if it is just for a cow. Good eatin'

Glockman55-Oh so TRUE!

I am very impressed by all the young family men that have answered up that would like to go, but cannot because either they cannot take their family, or afford a separate family vacation. That alone says volumes of the character of the people on this site.

I have done guided and non-guided hunts in the past, and I plan to do so in the future. I much prefer non guided, when I can, and it is practical. I live in the northeast. I am able to do a lot of deer hunting on my own, and do pretty good at it. Spend all year scouting and watching deer. However, my greatest passion is elk hunting. My first elk hunt was a DIY with two friends in Colorado. 7 days, I did not see an elk. One buddy saw one cow, the other saw three cows. Glorified camping trip. When I go west, I want to hit the ground hunting. I am a whitetail hunter, hunting with an outfitter has taught me a lot about elk.

That being said, I just drew Colorado 3rd season deer which will be a DIY, and hope to draw Wyoming antelope, which if I draw, will also be a DIY with my 12 yoa son. On the same note, I have 6 pref points for Wyoming Elk. When I do go, I will most likely use an outfitter for the best opportunity.
