    Wife drew a week 1 bull elk tag. We had ourselves a freak-out moment and scared the kids to death around midnight last night. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    No, get you an outfitter now. Outfitter will help you with your zone. You wait until July, you will be DIY. Let me know if I can help, but by all means, do not wait.

    I hear what you’re saying. What I’m confused about is if I choose an outfitter that’s in Zone 2, he says, select zone 2 as my first option, then I get Zone 3 when results come back. When I did this in 11, I only had to pick top 3 and got my first choice. I got a guy who may guide me on his land but there’s no guarantee I’ll draw his Zone. I appreciate all help and advice.

    The better outfitters have options in multiple zones... Don't delay.
