I just saw this thread and wondered if this hunt ever got off the ground. I am an experienced elk guide and hunter and just lost my ranch I hunted in Wyoming (left ranch to guide in New Mexico). I try to hunt at least 3 states each year and this looked like something I may be interested in.
I'm just getting into this long range shooting, I've killed 28 elk with a rifle but only 1 over 300 yards. I'm having a 300 WSM
being built that will be delivered some time mid summer and I hope to have it ready to hunt with in 2012.
I'm in good shape, but at 57 years old I realize I'm probably on the last 1/4 tank of my elk hunting life, also at this stage I really enjoy a cow hunt as much as a bull hunt. I'm pretty well set each year for hunting in both New Mexico and Utah but would like to hunt one other state in the right situation.
