"Bill had my elk on a string....He's the Elk Whisperer!" -Jay Houston
"A textbook hunt..Bill is the real deal ! "
"Bill knew right where the elk would be. I harvested my elk before 9 a.m. on opening day. He's a great guide!"
ELK HUNTING ADVENTURES
Due to business commitments, my elk guiding in 2021 will be very limited. However, I will be offering DIY packages for hunters who enjoy the independence of hunting without a guide, and simply need information to be able to find elk.
2021 DIY Scouting Reports
The DIY Scouting Reports will be offered for Units 3 and 5 only. Each Report will contain an introductory section containing general info on Kentucky Elk Hunting, including info on lodging, butchers, taxidermists, equipment needs, camping locations, fitness, weapons, and many other practical tips. The actual Scouting Report will contain detailed maps, trailhead locations, info on elk bedding and feeding areas, Public Lands and Regulated Areas. Maps will also include GPS coordinates, and detailed hand-drawn sketches with landmarks that will put you where I have encountered elk in the past. These reports will not tell you precisely where elk actually are at a given time, but you will receive in-tel that should allow you to find them.
Note-Purchasing these packages will require the hunter to sign an agreement prohibiting the sale or transfer of this proprietary information.
Unit 3 DIY Scouting Report
Either Sex Archery- Only 3 offered.
Firearms Bull- Only 2 offered-1/wk.
Firearms Cow-Only 2 offered-1/wk.
Unit 5 DIY Scouting Report
Either Sex Archery- Only 2 offered.
Firearms Bull-Only 2 offered- 1/wk.
Firearms Cow-Only 2 offered- 1/wk.
Note: Unit 5 has fewer elk and fewer public land opportunities than Unit 3, therefore the price is lower.
Unit Selection- As I did in 2020, I will also provide a Unit Selection Service for drawn elk hunters. The fee is $200. If I provide that service and you are selected to hunt in Units 3 or 5, I will provide a $100 discount on the DIY package for your unit. This is a somewhat random process, but in 2020, 75% of the hunters for which I provided this service received a unit or regulated area I requested for them. I can also assist you in finding a guide for your area should you wish to hire one.
