Has anybody made their first elk hunt a diy/drop camp and had success and then the next hunt used a guide. If so, I am wanting to hear your opinions on the good and bad of getting the guide. Preparing for the dromp camp hunt I put in tons of hours in research, reading, fittness, shooting and spending money. I was successful getting a 5x5 and more than happy. Hard work before and during the hunt payed off. What are the chances of getting a bigger bull with a guide? Do the guides give education? Thanks for all.
