Bad outfitter, Bad

I have gotten some great information from you guys on what states to hunt and where is the most available tags for non resident. I would like to know about some of the outfitters you guys have used. This is my first elk trip so I think I am going to go with a guided hunt so I can learn a little about what is going on. I would kind of like to do an unguided hunt but I don't know hardly anything about elk hunting and if I'm going to spend the money to come out there and hunt I might as well spend a little more and get a guide. However I'm not ruling out an unguided drop hunt I truly believe that would be the most rewarding type of hunt.

Anyway I would like to hear any experiences you have had with outfitters guided or unguided good or bad. I'm just trying to get some base information on where my money would be best spent. As well as where I would have a reasonable chance of success. Thanks for the input guys, I really appreciate you alls help.

What state?

In you other thread you mention New Mexico, but Colorado and Montana were also suggested. If you help us narrow it down that will help.

Also, if you run a search of this sub forum (upper right side) you can search using a state name or the word guide or outfitter and learn a lot.

not airing dirty laundry in public, not classy.

If you want to hunt and not just talk about it Call Fred and Michelle at Full Draw Outfitters in Trinidad CO, they go some rifle Elk hunts, second season Oct 17ish, otc tags, they slay em during second season on their ranch. Hunt is a little less than $6000 and you wont be sorry.
