"Big and Tall Elk hunt info needed"

Buddy of mine is 6'5 and 350lbs. Can hike some, but bad ankles don't help. Looking to find a outfitter, or landowner deal that might help him on a good "opportunity" elk hunt. I don't see horses as an option with his size. Daily hiking for public land elk here in the steep hills of Idaho has become too hard for him.

Would appreciate PM's from anyone aware of any reasonable priced opportunities. Assuming Colo, Utah, NM are all states with potential. I am looking for highly reputable situations, not looking to take a risk to save a few $$'s.

Any responses at all appreciated. Looking toward possibly 2017, or definitely 2018 at this point.

Palmer Outfitters runs a flatlander Elk hunt in the San Luis Valley that they have great success with. Shooting Elk in this setting is not for everyone but it just may be the ticket for someone like your friend. Unit 82 I believe.

Well if you wanted the best option would be any of the ranching for wildlife places in CO. They do not kill the biggest bulls, but as far as ease to hunt they can be very easy.

Horses aren't out of the question unless that's due to his immobility. A lot of outfitters use draft horses, just call around and let them know you got a big boy.

You might want to check out my 'New Mexico 16A' post. My buddy killed his bull on a special Mobility Impaired season. His doctor has to sign a form and submit it to NM G&F, then he can apply for a special handicapped hunt. It worked well for my buddy, he shot that bull at 8:30 opening morning.

I hope your buddy finds a hunt that will accommodate him, but I don't think being tall and overweight should qualify a person for a mobility impaired hunt. Those should be only for people with real physical impairments.

notags2, thanks for the PM I did reply.

I do remember talking to outfitters many years ago that had half-draft horses. I have considered looking for some of them. Not sure I am aware of any that use full draft, and frankly it would be fun to seem my buddy load on one of those. Not sure his ankles could take much saddle time, but some.

I appreciate the idea of not gaming the definition of "handicapped", but let's leave any decision on who is handicapped to the experts and not make generalizations based on what I have described so far, I certainly didn't ask for opinions on what should be considered "handicapped". FWIW, by buddy's Orthopedic surgeon advised him 6 years ago he needed to fuse his ankles due to injuries he sustained in the line of duty as a Corrections Officer. He has chosen not to, forgoing benefits he could qualify for, because he likes his work. He decided ankles with zero range of motion and even less ability to hunt is much worse than dealing with the pain he has now. So it's a little more than just being "big and overweight".
