Hence some of the unsympathetic reaction to a plea to assist after the loss of paid hunting access to one of the most outstanding deer and elk habitat ranches on earth, a ranch which recently sold for about $136 million, the highest price tag ever in Montana, a place where you may get to merely step out of the warm vehicle and shoot a trophy animal.
Although most hunters on this forum will readily offer advice and assistance to those obviously willing to put in the efforts usually required to successfully harvest an elk, recognize that most of them have "paid their dues" in the western states with scouting, researching, and putting in a great deal of time, effort and boot leather in hunting but not all that often even shooting, let alone taking a trophy bull elk of the quality running around in good numbers on the Climbing Arrow Ranch. As someone who has enjoyed the privilege of hunting cow elk on the CA, I have to be honest in acknowledging my envy of someone who hunts trophy game in that great place.
So don't be so critical of the seemingly "holier-than-thou" attitude, which is more aptly recognized as an attitude of valuing the effort and challenge that goes into hunting elk for most hunters.
If you have to ask....What is a typical “trespass fee” for most land. I am sure it varies widely but if there was an average per day/ week
