So I am stuck in no mans land with 9 points..... Anyone have any suggestions on a great private land outfit for next season. I have been on multiple Elk hunts and have never sealed the deal and this is my bucket list animal. I do not care if the unit would only take 3 points I am looking for somewhere that there is actually elk and not just people.

I am definitely wanting to use an outfitter/guide to fulfill this dream.(Due to genetic health issues) Any advice or points in the right direction would be appreciated.

Size of the bull really does not matter.

Thanks, Jason

I dont think Forrest does private land elk hunts. And you better be in shape to hunt the flat tops.

Just a thought go somewhere on a landowner tag or private in a OTC unit, also don't limit your search to CO if you would consider this. Save your points burn them another year in a good unit. Nothing wrong with burning your point on a private land hunt but the advantage of have lots of point is you should be able to find a good public hunt with them. If your willing to pay a outfitter you can probably get two hunts for not a lot more money. One with the outfitter and saving your point and one using your points and info you learned with a guide.

Sounds like you could meet those standards on a guided otc hunt and keep your points for a diy hunt the following year.
