Hello All,

I am in Colorado (experienced rifle hunter, new to Archery)and have a friend traveling from the East coast and we are looking for a guided or semi-guided Elk Archery hunt for 2018. 2x1 for a guided hunt would be fine, drop camp or private land.

If any AH members are guides, know of any or have any recommendations please let me know.
Thanks
Mark

Not a recommendation but head down to the local store that has a good magazine rack and pick up the latest issue of Bugle that is put out by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. In the back you will find all kinds of guides listed for Colorado.

Then start doing some homework on them.

Mark,
Give Doyle from J and D outfitting a call. https://www.jdoutfitters.com/ I will personally vouch for them. Super guy. He is our local SCI president, veteran. Top notch from top to bottom. Has a very large outfit but just a great bunch. Has camps all over the state. I have hunted with them twice and getting ready to do a third.

Recently took a trip with Cliff Gray and Flattop Wilderness Guides. They treated us quite well and would recommend them to others.

Mark, I've only hunted mule deer with Doyle (my weakness) a few times. Getting ready to schedule my third. I just texted him on the elk prices. I have a bunch of friends who has elk hunted with them. I'll get you some pricing.

Talked to Doyle. They range from 5500 to 8500 depending on what camp /quality of bulls.

All I can tell you Mark is I've hunted with a lot of outfitters and Doyle is as good of a guy as you will meet.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
