Looks I am going to try something a little different next year. One option on my list is a guided M/L elk hunt in unit 54 in the West Elk Wilderness area. The outfitter I am looking at is Tenderfoot Outfitters. One of my friends did a summer fishing trip with them and was very complimentary of their operation.
Anyone have any experience with them? How about just hunting in the wilderness area by yourself-DIY. I've never been in that particular area and if I do choose them, I will be making some trips there this summer to get an idea of the area. I spend some time every summer in Lake City, not too far away, so should be pretty easy to nose around a little.
