Default 5-6k hunt

Looking to book a hunt with a 5-6k budget and am conflicted on what to do for this year. Not interested in axis, nilgai, or aoudad. Anyone know of a good free range hunt for elk, oryx, blackbuck etc.

Free range elk in TX are expensive but you can go out of state for that price range. Free range oryx in new mexico can also be had at that price. I dont know anyone who has free range black buck. But you could probably shoot 2 within your process range.

You could do a DIY caribou hunt in AK for that.

You can do a guided elk hunt for that, but when you add travel, license, and tips, you will go over. I would probably buy a land owner tag in New Mexico, drive there, and kill a monster pronghorn with an outfitter.

This is a good option, after checking those prices are well within budget

Absoluely. We did a 10 day trip for under 2k with airfare and tags. I understand tags have gone up since then

That sounds like a great trip. Did you kill one?
