How to pull off an out-of-state backpack hunt on a budget - posted 5 months ago

We (me and 3 buddies) have been doing hunts like this for 12 years. Your cost estimates are pretty good. For the 12 years we have kept our yearly costs between 800 & 1000 per guy including all of the items you mention above. Those who say it's not realistic, haven't done it.
Also, if you have trouble with your haven't learned how to cook elk meat correctly or you have the wrong spouse. Fix the problem
I live for my 10 days every year. My wife, my friends, my family and my co-workers know that and respect that. I train & work all year for those 10 days. I guess I just love elk hunting that much....and I'm blessed because my other 3 buddies do too!
