Default Guide and/or Lodge Recomendation

Looking for solid 1st hand recomendation for a guide and/or lodge, preferably in CO, ID, or MT. I would like to find a "quality" person/place to hunt mule deer, or possibly elk.

Myself and some family members (5 people coming from PA) had a planned hunt for Oct 2013 (2yrs in the making) in WY with a guide that a few family members have been hunting with for 15+ years. We have been in regular contact with the guide and everything was "locked-in" until we received the call yesterday, with 2 major changes.
* Hunt shortened from 5 to 4 days.
* $1K per person price increase.

We canceled our hunt!

I've had good hunts with Elkhorn Outfitters in Craig, CO. They aren't cheap, but they are a very professional group. They do both Elk and mule deer hunts, and I think some antelope as well.

Rob - Pm Bull Elk. He has posted about multi-year trips at the same place in colorado and I had looked into it and would consider it when going out of state again.

Thanks! I will look into these options. Not sure, but we may be SOL for 2013. At least the timing of bad news came before the ISE show here in Sac next week. I will be there perusing the various booths. Also, family members in PA will be doing the same there, in Feb. Who knows, maybe I'll tag along on a bear hunt in Main, or a caribou hunt in Newfoundland???

Western big game draws start like next month. If you guys get a plan together quick you can still do 2013.
