    I've been looking into a drop camp hunt and wondering if anyone had suggestions on an outfitter they have used or any info. I've been researching Montana, New Mexico, and Colorado. Any help would be appreiciated.

    Whomever you choose make sure to get plenty of reviews from previous customers, both successful and those that were not. Some friends of mine went this route a couple of years ago without checking and paid the price. $2500. and got burnt. They went to Co.

    Have done a ton of looking at drop camp too. Probably doing a DIY backcountry hunt instead.

    It's really tough to find great drop in camps, sometimes you'll get stuck in an area that filled with lots of other hunters. Plus without scouting an area any, your luck is going down drastically. +1 on the calling LOTS of their previous clients. I'd prefer a DIY anytime.
