    BLM beware!!

    Exactly right. I was talking with one of the state biologists a few years back. He told me basically the ranchers are running the state. That's why there is more landlocked "public" land in WY than anywhere else. What they do is trade a 40 acres parcel in the middle of their ranch for the road...

    Blaze Orange Vest?

    Camp Food- Post a Picture!

    T-bones and potatoes on the grill after a few days up top in satellite camp eating freeze-dried meals. Makes the sore muscles and hard-fought miles worth it.

    Colorado Left Over Tag List

    Oh, I completely agree with that. It does seem kind of extreme how many leftover tags there are for private lands. To add to your sentiment, those tags probably were not forfeit tags like a draw area with points were.... those were what was left after a draw and they still will have abundance in...

    Colorado Left Over Tag List

    Just out of curiousity. Does the landowner get a kickback like they do/did in Wyoming if they let someone hunt on their land?
