Anybody Drawing Tags

Recommended Posts

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.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
