Okay, I've decided to try hunting again after stopping back in 1972. I've kept shooting, just stopped hunting. I'd like to hunt WA west side elk in 2013 to give myself time to get back in shape. I'm a disabled Vet and don't walk as well as I used to, but I do get a low priced hunting license. Looking for info on how (Guided, self hunt, etc), bullet choice (I shoot a Remington 700 in 30-06 that I've tinkered with a bit). The rifle likes Hornady A-Max and SST bullet over 168 grains, but I wouldn't use either of those to hunt. Any suggestions would be appreciated so I can set some goals for myself.
