    CO Units 53, 54, 30 advice

    I am a non-resident looking to cash in my points in Colorado this year and these units best match the points I have. I could draw 3rd season tags in 30 and 54. In 53 I would have an ok chance of drawing but I wouldn't be guaranteed. Does anyone have any experience with these units? I can hunt...

    Montana Moose Unit 331

    My dad drew a 331 Ruby moose permit this year and I am doing some research for him. I did a little archery elk hunting in the area back in college but I spent most of my time in a small portion of the unit and that has been quite a while ago. I am looking for anything- previous experience...

    Does Colorado give you the option to give back your tag and still keep your points? If so, do they keep any of your money?

    CO Deer Advice

    I have 11 points in Colorado for deer. It doesn't look like I am gaining any ground for better tags than what I can draw now so I am set on using my points this year. 11 points kind of puts a person in no man's land so I will probably have to draw a unit that requires less than 11 points. I have...

    First Lite Recommendations

    Can anyone give me some suggestions on getting outfitted for September bowhunting with First Lite clothing? I was thinking the Corrugate Guide pants for sure. Does anyone have any experience with their rain gear? Is it loud? I appreciate any advice.

    CO Deer Advice

    My dad and I have 9 points for mule deer and I am hoping to gather some info for us. We would like to find an area where it would be reasonable to take 180" bucks if we hunted hard. Are there any areas that fit this description that can be drawn with 9 points? If not, how many points would it...

    Homemade digiscoping adapters

    I have a Sony RX100m3 and would like to figure out a way to attach it to my Vortex Razor spotter to get some pictures while scouting. They make some high dollar adapters but I would like to try making something cheaper before I decide to spend the money. A friend of mine knows a machinist that...

    Utah Elk Seasons

    I am looking for some advice from people with experience elk hunting in Utah. I have been applying for an archery elk tag in Utah and now have 6 points. Where I am now living, I can archery hunt every year with a reasonable chance to shoot a 300-340 bull. Since I have pretty good opportunities...

    WY 119 deer

    I know its kind of late to be asking for info on a unit but I have been focused on elk so deer hunting has kind of been an afterthought. Since I couldn't seal the deal on a good bull during archery season, trying to get a nice deer is much more of a priority. I applied for a 119 deer tag this...

    Input For New Deer Rifle

    I am looking to buy a new deer rifle for mule deer hunting. I want something that shoots flat so I will be fairly comfortable shooting out to 500 yards if needed. It also needs to be light enough to pack around all day. Budget is $1500 (includes scope). Let's hear your suggestions.

    Elk Area 45 Packer

    I just drew an archery elk tag for area 45 in the Big Horns. Unfortunately none of my buddies drew this year, so I will most likely be hunting alone. Knowing it is big country I thought it would be wise to try and find a packer in case I am fortunate to get an elk down. Does anyone know of...

    Preference Point Question

    I noticed in the MRS section that they only list the draw odds with up to 5 points. Is 5 points considered max points or do they just not have the room to list more in the MRS? Basically what I'm saying is, is there any advantage to having 8 points for elk as opposed to 5? I realize you have to...

    Preference Points Question

    I have 4 preference points going into the 2012 draw. Looking at the drawing odds in the Eastmans MRS section it will say something like 10% odds with 5 preference points, but then to the right there is a column that says estimated points to draw and it will say something like 25. I don't...
