Re: Drop Camps
You may want to consider buying your own wall tent, stove etc and have the outfitter just pack you in. I did it that way 3 years ago. We ended up paying $500 each to pack us and the camp in. Compared to $1,500.00 each for a drop camp. I purchased the entire camp including the 12 x 16 tent, and poles for under $750.00 and then I had a brand new setup that I got to keep when we were done. It cost me $200.00 to pack out the elk I got for a total of about $750 to the outfitter and $750 for the tent. The future hunts can be done for around $750 each assuming you get an elk or $500 if you strike out. I did not use a horse I just quarted my elk and hung it in the trees and the outfitter packed it out with us.
