    Favorite State for Hunting Elk?

    I'm doing some research for an article and I'm interested in your opinions.

    1) What is your favorite state for hunting elk? Why?

    2) How are things looking this year?

    Colorado, because you can hunt all over this state depending on your weapon of choice for only $ 49.00

    There are a lot of hunters in this state but with horses and mules you can still get away!

    $601.00 nonresident, Colorado has the largest numbers of Elk of any state and I think the most flexible hunting. Over the counter or draw. I submitted on an either sex tag, They also have seven?? I think separate seasons. God bless ya'll

    I've been pretty lucky.
    My job has allowed me to hunt Resident Elk in WA & OR.
    I've also NR hunted UT, CO, and this year I add WY.
    I've tagged at least two elk in all the states but UT.

    I honestly can't tell you a favorite.
    They all have both good and bad aspects.
    It truly is what you make it !!!!!!

    And things are looking great.

    I will say Idaho because there is good otc opportunity and it is pretty close to home for me. Honestly I have never actually hunted elk there but I saw some really nice bulls on deer hunts and camping trips and have been trying to hunt elk there for the last 4 years but it just hasnt worked out mostly due to other tags I have drawn. Not that Im complaining about drawing tags
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
