shane's first diy elk huntEmail message: “Thank you for your DIY guide. I used it to plan a first time elk hunt for my son’s 16th birthday. We live in Florida and are experienced deer hunters but have never hunted out west. We hunted NW Colorado for 2nd rifle in GMU 4 and my son bagged a 4×4 bull. Your DIY guide and a lot of online research enabled us to have a great hunt. Thanks” – Brady Gaughan – Read their hunt story here

From Dan Allan, The Author

diy elk hunting guideElk hunting does not have to be outrageously expensive and you don’t have to win the lottery to hunt elk. Both residents and non-residents can hunt elk every year with general season tags in 6 Western states.

The West has the last big sections of undeveloped land that support large populations of big game. Elk populations are still very good in most of the Western states and are even increasing in many of those states. How long will it last? Who knows? But I promise you this, if you ever give elk hunting a try, you will never regret it. You will regret waiting so long to start.

60-Day, Money-Back Guarantee

If you’re not satisfied with this Elk Hunting Guide within 60 days, just let me know and I will refund your money, no questions asked. That’s how confident I am that this resource will help you with your elk hunt.

What This Book Is Not

This book is not going to show you a secret strategy to draw limited entry tags in each state.

This book is not full of pretty elk photos – Since this is an ebook, photos are limited to save file size and reduce the cost of the book. You can find hundreds of pictures of elk online. Most embedded images are a few necessary maps & tables to help you decide where to hunt. For quick reference, this book links to dozens of maps, documents, resources & photos of different habitats, forest types, National Forests, ecoregions and mountain ranges.

I hope to convince you that you can hunt elk on public land with general tags and have an amazing experience. I also will try to make sure you are aware of logistic and survival issues you may not experience in other areas. No use having all that fun, then coming home dead.
