Anybody Drawing Tags

16 posts in this topic

About 6 more days for Elk and Deer draw results to be posted, but so far I have drawn Pronghorn (Took me 7 points to draw, and I live in Colorado!) and Bear tags. Did not draw Sheep, again, got my check back in the mail about a week ago.

Here's my final tally for tags

Drew Archery Deer Unit 96

Drew Rifle Pronghorn Unit 87

Drew Sept Season Bear Unit 29 (Also good for 3 other Units)

Drew Point for Elk - Will buy OTC Archery Tag

Blanked on Sheep and Goat - Still accumulating Points.

Hope everyone is faring well with draws.

Don't forget to check on leftover tags when they become avalible.

Good luck everyone.

Looks like I get to go Muley hunting this fall, 2 other guys drew tags too. We will have Elk tags too both bulls and cows.

Where do you plan on hunting Sheep? We were hunting near Rand a number of years ago, I saw some Sheep up on the mtn. side, looks like a interesting hunt.

I haven't checked but should have 4 points for elk and 1 for deer. Anyone know when refunds for non-res go out?

Mike - I shot a 6X6 bull with the bow in 161 a couple years back. We saw plenty of mulies there.

Cooter,

There are some very nice bulls that come out of 161, I think I saw your bull on a previous post, very nice, so far my best is a 5x5 and I have watched much bigger from afar but there wasn't enough light left in the day to chase them down, someday I'll get me one for the wall.

The Mulie tag kind of dictates when I go west Elk hunting these days, if I draw one I'm going and I'll get a Elk tag too, if I don't draw, I stay home. My Dad and Brother both put Mulies in the record book last year, one tipped 192 and the other tipped 193 for B&C, this year it's my turn! I hope...

I'd like to go out in September one year, that would be fun but I've been saying that for the past 20 years and it hasn't happend yet but I feel it getting closer.

The bull I got was pure luck - only elk I saw and we never heard a bugle. Got lucky and spotted him out feeding and made a good stalk and shot.

I hunted mulies in 28 last year and we saw some nice ones, nothing like the 190's your dad and bro got though. Time to figure out what to do with pref points, I have 4 for elk and 1 for deer and will not do any CO hunting this fall. My buddies from CO are hunting 70 this fall to test the waters, might be out in that unit in the near future. Later.

So how long have you guys been applying for your sheep and goat tags? I got my third point for both goats and sheep this year so I am eligeble to be in the draw next year even though it will still probably be years before I see any results, but since I am only 22 time is on my side.

I got my 3rd deer point this year as well and I think I'm going to shoot for a 54 1st rifle season tag next year. Anyone know how bad the winter kill was in the gunnison basin region?

Got points for 13 tags in 5 different states this year, and zero tags to show. Thinking about buying a leftover tag in wyoming though.

Without the headache of looking through the DOWs HSOforum, does anyone know if CO has a limit on how many species you can apply for pref points for....for some reason I think there is.

From what I have heard, winter kill in the Gunnison area seems to have been kept to a mim. this year. Massive supplimentle feeding programs throughout the region went very well over the winter. Pre-hunt numbers appear to be in good shape.

You can apply for every species if you want. You can only generate a preferance point for each species applied for each year. Only one application per species is accepted. Hope that helps.

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
