So my wife has blessed the spending of a fair amount of money on a hunting trip, and Elk are at the top of the list. Budget excluding travel costs and taxidermy is $5000-6000 The likely group I have going are all spot and stalk type whitetail hunters in decent to good shape. Very proficient out to 3-400 yards, farther for me. Elk hunting experience ranges from minimal to none. What we are looking for is this: Fair chase, reasonable chances at a good elk..does not have to be a 350 inch elk to make us happy, a good looking 5x5 for the wall with a good story would tickle me to death.. Over the counter or virtually guaranteed draw success. For the guide service, we just want someone who knows what they are doing, has a good area and will work as hard as we will. Fancy accommodations are not necessary. If I am looking for something unreasonable say so, if there are things I might not be considering then by all means say so too! Thanks for any advice.
