Montana Hunting Company with Rob Arnaud... hunting Ted Turner Ranches. Thats where I would head if money was not much of an issue and i wanted to go private
I agree with mntnguide, Rob Arnaud is a good way to go.
I also have a friend that guides that same two hunters almost every year at Vermejo Park. The success pictures from his clients are incredible. That would be my first choice. Maybe someone will cancel, even the dedicated guy my friend guides cancels every now and then.
Here is the PM I sent.
10K may be tough for a solid 350 hunt.
Here are some excellent outfits. These are all wild free range animals. The first three are like hunting private land. GT Nunn I believe is public land, but he is very good and produces amazing bulls. GT may have some leases, not sure about that.
J&J Outfitters (Jed Wayment). Excellent outfitter. There is some excellent private land elk hunting in Utah, and Jed is one of the best. Check out his photo albums:
Mescalero Apache Reservation (New Mexico). Incredible elk hunt:
Hill Ranch in Colorado. Awesome elk hunt:
GT Nunn (New Mexico). Can secure landowner tags:
