    I lke drop camps. But you need to do your homewok to be sure you are being dropped in a area that has the game you are after. You can contact the state game dept, ask for references that went into the areas you are consiering, hunter sucess in the area. A drop camp gives me the satisifaction of being in the outdoors and hunting with my skills.

    Just make sure they leave horses with you. You don't want to find game 5-8 miles from camp and have to hike out and back every day.

    Re: Drop camps

    Never hunted down there so I can't really help with that. Are you planning on doing a drop camp with a guide or on your own? If you are looking for a guide, be sure to do a bunch of research. You want to get references and speak with people who were both successful and not successful to hear what they think. If you are looking at doing it on your own, there is obviously a bunch of planning that you need to do ahead of time: Are you packing in on your own or with horses/mules/llamas, etc? If with animals, you need to obviously make sure that they have access to food and water, etc etc. Not sure if any of this helps, but just some things to think about.

    Re: Drop camps

    I entertained a drop camp and after talking to a couple to folks that had been on dc hunts as well as outfits that offered such hunts I was out on the deal. I put the pencil to it and. realized I could outfit my own camp for less and have the equipment. for future hunts. both of the felas I spoke to who had been on these type hunts on different years and both said it was very little sign of elk and the campsite looked as if hundreds of hunters had stayed there since the grown was with out a sprig of grass anywhere. around the tent.
