Wyoming elk hunt

Anyone hunted Wy ? Can't decide on hunting on my own or going with a guide. Tys for any help.
If it’s anything like pronghorn it might take you a while to draw a tag in a good unit.
And how difficult was it to acquire that tag ?is there a lottery or did you get over counter tags ? Do they have specific units you are assigned to? I am interested in going out soon as I figure out some details and pin point some good diy public land out there to get goin.
