The Elk mountain range’s namesake is prized in the area along with deer and wild turkey. Hiring a local hunting outfitter is recommended for their expertise, for permitting, and they can even help with hiring a local meat packer to process your game. Many hunting areas are not accessible by motorized vehicles, so plan on other means to get there.
