What's the most affordable way to successfully hunt an elk?
My cousin and I have always talked about going out west to go elk hunting. We are faced with two large problems with that. 1.) We're from Indiana and don't know exactly where to go. 2.)We can't afford to pay thousands and thousands to an outfitter.
I'd like to find soemthing where we drove to a place, rode an atv, or horses in the rest of the way and hunted away from everyone else. Does that exist?

plenty of those....
....here in colo. i will try to give you a little help.....first off, define what kind of hunt you are looking for.....do you want early season archery, muzzle loader, or do you want to hunt rifle season? of course the rifle season is the most popular so that is when the most hunters are here....the highways are clogged with trucks pulling all manner of trailers full of ATV's for the week before the first combined rifle season....some prefer the later season, when there is more of a chance of snow. there is another excellent thread on this today but i cant remember the name....tenvol posted all the DOW info and websites......look for that thread...decide what kind of hunt you want and i will be glad to try and help you coordinate it....AJ
In Oregon you drive right upto some of the Wilderness area's and then backpack in from there. There is alot of public land in Oregon. The Wilderness area's are going to be your best bet. They are not crowded once you get in a couple of miles.
