Jerry not to sound like a smart A.., but if I go mule deer Or elk hunting I'm getting a guide for the simple reason that I have never hunted either one and If I go to the trouble and expense of that, I'm getting a guide. Now after a few trips I may decide I don't need one. But to start out with I will have a guide unless I'm with someone like you who has been there, done that.

Don't know about the rubbing, but I'll be glad to "wash" them off for you.

It's a question I ponder quite a bit, Jerry. I've been out west hunting, twice. DIY hunts.
I had one opportunity to take an animal, each time. Both times, the animal walked away, unscathed. My instincts put me in the right spot, but my lack of experience won out.
Would having a guide have helped? For sure.
Do I have any regrets? Yes. I picked a bad area for the drawing on my antelope hunt. Other than that, no.
I had a great time, hunting, in beautiful country, I've never seen before.
I'm still kinda on the fence. For right now, I'd rather be able to go more often, see more places, and let the chips fall where they may without a guide; versus saving up for 5-6 years and hiring a guide.

Once again, please refrain from cutting short any baseless totally emotional arguments with facts. It leads to boring, completely objective conversations well beyond the comprehension ability of many.

Outside of a Texas exotic ranch hunt or whatever, it is NOT "ok wake up at 10, we will drive 10 minutes, there is the herd, shoot that one".

Gonna have to quote YOU on this one. "Those who have never done it, have no real basis on which to criticize it, you can only speculate. As with many things, there will be a lot of assumptions, and we all know about assumptions. "
You assume a lot.

They are actually quite common on some of the high fence ranches in Texas. I've even seen them free range in West Texas.
