Re: Want to head out west, first time ever.

Thanks for the input guys. I guess i wasnt fully thinking about the weather. I usualy dont really care about the weather when i hunt, but i remember reading some stuff now and i agree, it could get real nasty.

I will look into hunting TX, i know you can get guaranteed tags, but like Nomadpilot said, it's texas, so bring your wallet. I will check out the link (thanks) and the outfitter im going to hunt hogs with in 3weeks ago does antelope hunts so ill see what he charges to get a comparison.

Sure thing. The guys my dad and I go hog hunting with are called Pope Brothers Guide and Outfitting Service. Had a blast last time and booked our next hunt with them about a week after completing the first. Their antelope hunts are prices well. Check out the link to see prices, add on's etc. Unfortinualy, doesn't look like the season runs during a holiday for me to go hunt... Will have to see but doesn't look too good.

Re: Want to head out west, first time ever.

Mt. hood (Oregon) Maupin and White River units are open November 6th thru14th for Elk. (bull with at least 1 visible antler.....it can have way more than 1). Weather usually isnt too bad. And if the snow is too nasty, just move down a couple thousand feet from Hood to 1 of the other 2 units.
Drive till you see tracks in the snow, get out and walk and dont come back till somethings dead or its dark. I prefer the White River unit my self for the years Im not drawn for the tag I want. Most it snowed last year was 8" one night, and the usual 2-4'' most other days. Melts off quick tho.........usually.......

I am in the same boat with school and work myself. Would like to go out west and shoot a speed goat or eld or mule deer. The problem i run into is the money. I cant see spending 3 thousand pluss right now to do so. I am being told my job will be no more come sept 30 so i am limited to what i can spend. If anyone has any speed goats they want killed or know of anyone let me no. I ant looking for the new world record animal or anything just a average will do.
