Talk Anything related to Elk Hunting
10 hunters = 10 different answers. Join the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and read their info and make a decision based on what best meets your needs. AZ, MT, NM, PA TN have long waits with higher success. In PA or somewhere like OK you can only draw a tag once in your lifetime but I know a guy who shot a 400+ bull with that 1 tag he got. I would rather hunt every year like I have in CO where I have had 5 elk in 7 years and 3 bulls. If you wanted to ensure you'd get a tag you could come to colorado but we have about 10% success rate partially due to the high number of tags and partially the 4 heelers effect in public lands. I personally witnessed 50 4 wheelers come up road last year neat Vail during the prime of the hunt (those hunters are included in the number for success).
