    Sounds like fun. I am committed to N.M. to elk hunt this year, but am very possibly interested in next year,especially if somebody else from Ky wants to drive.

    If I manage to harvest a Elk as a first time Elk hunter it will be a huge bonus. But, if I at least see Elk remotely close, I will consider that a success.

    Elk hunting is tough so this is an excellent outlook!

    Hmmm elk/deer, deer/elk, what to do. I'm hoping I still have vacation left so I can make it.

    More then likely in 45. It will be in an OTC unit for sure.

    Was wanting to know so I can put in for a deer tag as well as getting the OTC elk tag.

    Understandable. I'll verify what unit as soon as I can.

    Hi fellow hunters¡

    I´m Oscar, a spanish bowhunter interested in hunting elk in the archery season. I know bowhunting elk is not easy specially DIY in a public land, but being there is just a victory.

    In 2014 I was bowhunting with a local hunter in a Public Land of Idaho. I couldn´t fill the tag but the trip was worth it. I saw elk, moose, black bear (a too close encounter with the animal), mule deer…I was very lucky seeing moose at 40 yards becuase a non resident hunter told me that he needed 7 years to see moose for his first time.
    Repeating the state is a choice but I have to admit that I would like going to Colorado in the Archery Season.

    Being a foreigner hunter is not easy to organize a hunting trip, choose a place or Unit, logistics, etc.. and specially if you travel alone. An Elk Camp Invite like this one is like a gift that makes everything easier.

    First at all I dont know if I´ll be able to have hollidays in September so I can be there, but I want to try it.
    I read that other hunters from UK, New Zealand, Australia…went to that camp in the past.

    One of my biggest worries is what to do with the meat after the elk is down. I mean when the meat is packed and out of the mountains, cause I can´t bring the meat home with me. Airport and Custom laws dont allow bring meat to the country, but I think this problem is for all non USA residents, isnt it?
    Maybe for a non experienced bowhunter this sounds very hopeful, but better to have a plan before things happen.

    Sure here I can get the answers to the lot of questions that come to my head when thinking about hunting in the backcountry.:biggrin:



    Oscar.

    Orzow, from what I've read those traveling from abroad eat as much as they can. The rest is given away or eaten by others at Elk Camp.

    Orzow, no need to worry about downed Elk, the greedy buggers at the camp will eat all they can and you just donate the rest to somebody who needs or wants it...... you have to have a donation receipt signed by you and the person you have donated the meat to..... its that easy :)

    Peter and Dave, thanks for your answers. Now I have a thing less to think about.
