I have posted a couple of threads earlier this year about planning my first elk hunt, well now the vacation calendar has finally arrived and I have 9/23-9/29 and 10/21-10/27 to chose from. I can tack a couple of personal days on the begining or end for drive time but that is what I got to work with. I would appreciate any help as to what states have season thise dates and what states to look at. I'm going guided as this will be my first elk hunt and I want to put the odds in my favor. I will be driving in from KY so I will have to figure in drive time. Let me know. I'm looking hard at New Mexico and Idaho as well as Colorado of course. All opinions welcome.
