    Trophy Hunting...

    I think it means different things to different people. I grew up hunting in Vermont, where Whitetail success was about 10-12%, so unless you had your own large property, and multiple deer to choose from, you shot the first legal buck. And that was all the "trpphy" I needed. But, if you're...

    CO Point Creep in 2021? You Bet!!

    I am not totally sure how to read the tables, but it looks like everyone with 1 point that applied as a Non-Resident got a tag last year, and thats the cutoff. I have 2 points, so hopefully good.

    CO Point Creep in 2021? You Bet!!

    So you think a unit where 1-2 points drew last year, will 2 have a chance this year? Possible? At least give me some hope...….LOL

    When did you kill your first deer?

    1992, whitetail 6 pt. in Vermont. 11 yards, sitting on the ground, and got bit by the scope when I shot. Didn't care...… ;)

    CO Point Creep in 2021? You Bet!!

    I'm just curious, does point creep usually affect units across the board, or only the better units where you start getting over 5-6 points? I am planning my fall trip to CO or a combo deer/elk hunt this fall, and nervous I won't get a tag. I am targeting a unit that pretty much is guaranteed...

    Daughter holds the biggest buck in the household

    I've been here, just sort of a slow couple of years. Didnt get back to Vermont due to the virus this year, so no hunting there. And only got out a few times here with not much to show for it.

    So...What are your plans for 2021?

    Taking a retirement trip to Colorado with my son. Going 2nd season, so I can do a deer/elk/possibly bear combo hunt. Never got an elk or bear, and only a small Muley buck down here in San Diego.......

    What a year!!!!! 170” bow and 203” muzz

    Either one of those would make a hunt of a lifetime..... Great bucks!

    A little different

    Haven't been on here for quite a while, gotta get back into it. Anyway, went back to Vermont to hunt Thanksgiving week. We get to hunt a golf course, consisting of just over 600 acres. Usually drive out to the blinds in a pickup, but figured we would try and alternate route this day. My 13...
