    I have been swapping bear hunts in Ontario for over 15 years now, with alot of successful killing of different animals. This is the best way to see new places and hunt different species, for the poor average working man without big outfitter fees.

    I'm always excited to hunt something new somewhere new, here in Florida you get worn out with the Osceola turkeys, hogs, and gators.

    The coyote hunters have been out with their dogs and had some good success already this winter, and my buddies that hunt rabbits with crosspatch hounds have been smoking cottontails and snowshoes.

    I'm another easterner that would be interested in joining a group or individual on a swap hunt. There's not many hunting opportunities here in Connecticut however I've got two good sized fishing boats and would be glad to take a few trips out fishing. We always eat well on our hunts as well. Plenty of seafood!

    I have done it and it was great. I had never hunted whitetail and an friend that had never hunted elk. I went to Missouri and shot a doe after very slow buck sightings an missed my one and only opportunity. He came out to Oregon and I took him elk hunting ( cow). He also missed and small opportunity and learned what its like to hunt in the mountains compared to his home Missouri. We both had a great time with the new experiences. We plan to do it again.

    I think its a great concept as long as both parties are like minded and interested in trophy hunting. Just having fun and learning new things. For me learning to sit in a stand. I ll take my 3 mile walk into the back-country, and another 3-4 per day, compared to trying to figure out how to climb up in those damn things and sit there.

    I'm further north than that by about 2 hours closer to you. I live near the 1000 islands area, I have property near fort drum, north of watertown ny, as well as property in Parishville NY more hilly mountainous country.

    I'm a lot further away than your friend from MO, but we do have some good whitetail hunting everything from farmland to foothills of the Adirondack mountain hunts. I have hunted them in various ways from old school deer drives to stand hunting. I have access to 2-3 nice camps on both private and public lands. The camps range from out houses to full bathrooms, one with a shower and the other two don't but do have showers close by. two are wood heated and one is propane. Sleeping quarters range from a couch to a bunk room with beds.

    I have never hunted elk before so anything will be a treat for me. The physical part of the hunt would be the hardest thing for me, I'm a disabled vet with two bad shoulders and a bad back. However just seeing the country and the animals from a far would be a dream come true.

    I might come up for a weekend and join you Crossbow. It's nice to make a kill but I've always had a good time in deer camp.
