Arizona is my go to elk state, without question. Lots of elk, big bulls, plenty of rugged, remote country to get away from everyone else, limited number of participants.

I grew-up up in Washington state and that is where my archery elk hunting journey began and I will never hunt for elk there again. I hit the lotto and moved to AZ in 2012 and have been fortunate to hunt elk here and it truly is magical. I was fortunate to draw an archery New Mexico tag this year and still can't believe I will be chasing monsters in less than a month and I get to have my dad there with me. I booked a wilderness horseback elk hunt in Wyoming for 2028 (yeah, they're booked out that far) with a highly regarded outfitter and that will cost me over $10k. To me, elk hunting is life and I'm willing to pay a premium to experience elk hunting that not many people will ever get the chance to. Spending the money doesn't bother me because it's a passion and I can't imagine not going elk hunting every year, even if I have to pay a premium. So, I guess you can say I have multiple "dream" elk hunts on my list and that list will continue to grow.

Once in a lifetime elk hunt?

That’s easy. Gila elk tag. Pony up the $15-20k for the landowner tag and another 7-9k for an outfitter.

If you’re looking for landowner type tags and dream type hunts... Nevada/New Mexico LO tags, White Mountain Apache Reservation in AZ, or Deseret in Utah.

Horseback hunt sounds like British Columbia.

New Mexico draw is always an option, there’s always a chance, just a small one.

And play all the super tag raffles.
