    There are a lot of good answers on this page. Unfortunately, there's not enough space on this page to give you all the advice that your question ask's. If you don't live in a state which has a season then I would save my money and book a hunt with an outfitter. That way you can latch onto everything they provide,from gear needed, to spot and stalk,when and how to use calls, etc....... I spent a lot of years on my own,discovering what works and what doesn't before things started to gel for me. I found elk hunting to be a lot of hard work and frustration. Patience Required!! So pay attention to your outfitter, and have a good time. You'll love it!

    The best weapon, for Elk Hunting the West, believe it or not, is not the biggest, fastest gun, or the fastest, quietest bow, but the best set of binoculars you can afford to buy! Spot and stalk hunting is the probably the best and most effective way of hunting not only Elk, but Mule Deer. It would be wise to be in shape and to not be afraid of the dark or walking for miles in heavy timber.

    First thing you need to do is save up a whole bunch of Money.

    Out of state Elk tags will cost you several hundreds to over a thousand dollars. If you decide to puchase a landowner tag; they will be several thousands of dollars. A decent outfitter will cost you $4000. Travel to and from location, car rental, etc.. can add up very quickly.

    Should have also mentioned, just get out and try, you learn the most through trial and error, and if you never try, you'll never succeed.

    If you've never been, book a hunt, and your outfitter will tell you what you need for gear and will show you the ropes. Other options are get a friend who has experience, or just start reading and watching, and studying everything you can get your hands on about elk hunting.

    So far everbodys right, but they've left out Bow/Muzzle loader hunting too. Short answer is it's like deer hunting, but not.
