Pretty neat brother! Have you spoke with either of these men about what their "dream hunt" would be. With the budget I would rule out a marco polo sheep hunt but I think if you talk with a few outfitters in say Az, or Colorado, maybe Idaho. You may be able to get your buddies chasing muleys in the desert, or elk in the pinions. Im not very well connected with guides or outfitters so I can't really point you in the right direction but each state mentioned has plenty of options for an outfitter. And most of them are good hearted fellas that take kindly to men who serve their community.
Fill us in a bit more on the specifics of what your going for here. I dont think you mentioned age of your buddies. Or animal or weapon preference.
Look forward to seeing how this turns out for you and your buddies!
Also welcome to the forum!
