I want to go on an elk hunt. First, I am from Michigan and have never elk hunted before. Second, I want to hunt the mountains. I am 33 years old and in pretty good shape but would get in better shape for the hunt. I hunt with a lot of buddies, but most have never elk hunted. I am in a place in life where I can go to an outfitter and hunt. My questions are:
What state would you hunt, why?
What time of year would you go?
Is there an outfitter you would look at?
What about combo hunts where I could hunt mule deer and elk? Is this a good way to go? Hunt two species while paying for travel once.
