    New guy on the block

    Wanted to drop in and say hello to everyone here. I just signed up to the forums here hoping to fet some information and some ideas on a hunt out west I would like to do. Hoping to do an elk hunt in the 2015 season. I have never been out west and have always wanted to and hopefully I will be able to in 2015. Will probably be asking quite a few questions. Also planning on getting the eastmans magazine also for information also. Hope to learn some stuff from you all

    Welcome to the EF. Just a word of warning, once you come out West you are hopelessly addicted and will have to come back every year, hope your hunts out West are always successful!

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. To answer a few of the questions I live in central Missouri and am primarily a whitetail hunter. I am die hard archery guy also.
    As far as what state I would like to go to on a hunt I really do not have any preference As to which one really. I know some are draw and some are OTC tags like Colorado. But I really am not sure which one to try and go for.
    I know most for draw tags you need preference points to get a decent tag or a tag at all so more than likely I will probably go to Colorado since tags are easy to get. But I am all for any one giving some opinions

    And I am not against using a guide either. And that might be the best thing for me to do since it would be my first time out there

    This will be for a hunt in 2015 so I have some time to choose. And I will also need to get some gear and so on

    Welcome Luke! I went to sedalia, MO last year. First time in my life I ever wanted to take a shower every 15 minutes, I never knew it could be so humid anywhere! What weapon would you be wanting to hunt these elk with? I would also look at a WY antelope hunt for your first western hunt. I would recommend getting all of Mike Eastmans books and reading them cover to cover a few times, and subscribe to EBJ and EHJ! Tons of great info in them to help plan your first hunt!
