Late Season Advice

Hello all,

My 50th is coming up, and after 5 years in semi-self-imposed exile in Sweden, I am trying to make up for lost time pursuing a longterm dream of learning about elk hunting. I'm getting set for a DIY archery hunt in my home state of Oregon, but as I know my odds are less than great as a total tyro, I'd like a backup guided late-season option. I don't have particularly deep pockets but I figure the 50th justifies at least researching outfitters. Probably casting a way-too-wide net here, but where and whom would you recommend? I was thinking ID, but open to other options, and I'm set up for both archery and rifle.

Many thanks in advance for your knowledge,

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
