Quick question for you all,

As a new hunter to the west, I am curious to understand what fitness level you should be at for a backpack hunt.

I currently am 259, looking to drop 25-35#'s by september. the weight loss in of itself should help, but i am looking for guidance on what my fitness level should be. running a 5k without stopping? running it in x amount of time? Being able to walk x miles with x weight? Are there any other gates that you measure your readiness by?

I have lost 20# in the past 3 months, so I hope I am on my way to success, but if there are other benchmarks I should be going after, will be helpful. I have browsed the forum and found some, but wanted to look for more.

Hello everyone, new to this site and brand new to elk hunting. I have decided to stray from bucks and ducks here in the midwest and start trying my hand hunting out west.

It has been a goal for years to start elk hunting, but as the story goes, I needed to take the time to get my financials in order to be on stable ground for my family before making the jump right in.

Well that time is now... I was approached by a few friends to join them on their first elk hunt this upcoming year. 

Myself being all in for this, i joined elk university and gohunt to hopefully increase my chances of success and at the very least, make sure i know at least the basics.

Being new to this, and wanting to get out and hunt we were looking at an OTC tag, but still plan on putting in for other draws and seeing if we get lucky.

when we put in for a group tag, if the group is chosen, do all members of the party receive tags or is that a state by state basis? I am nervous that is someone in the group doesn't get a tag, they will back out of the trip so i am nervous if that happens and i am stuck with a tag with no one to hunt with.

So much for me to unpack as I continue through the elk 101 course and i am sure i will have many more questions to come.

thanks everyone,
