Me and my dad are looking at possibly booking an elk hunt. I'm not really sure how to approach this, and I have a lot of unanswered questions. What states offer a good Elk hunting experience? More specifically, what are some reputable outfitters from those states? Do we have to apply for a tag in a lottery? If so, when? Is there any sure way of getting a tag? How much $? What time of year is best to book a hunt? Sorry for writing a book of questions, but if there is anyone out there with some elk hunting experience, your advice would be appreciated.
