Hi all! Me and a couple lifelong hunting buddies are wanting to do an Elk hunt. Where do we even begin, each state is so much different. Looking to get something in line for fall of 2020 so next year. What states offer over the counter elk tags? any states better than others as far as public land? None of us have been out west hunting before so its new to all of us, just figured I would ask here and hopefully get some experienced knowledge. Basically just wondering where our best chance of getting tags would be and which states are "better" elk states than the next. Thanks everyone, I appreciate it.
