That said, any elk hunt can be a physically challenging experience in which you may be required to put on a lot of miles in steep or rocky terrain. Therefore, it’s in your best interest to be in as good of physical condition as possible in order to increase your chance for success as well as ensure an enjoyable hunt.
Typical Weather Conditions: Temperatures can fluctuate drastically and range from teens to 80 degrees with the possibility of rain or snow. Being prepared for various weather conditions is a must. We will provide you with a recommended gear list once you’ve booked your hunt.
