    " Plenty of these big blue chickens to go around. Shoot em in archery, muzzle or first rifle season" " After the first snow flys even easier to find em"

    if money is as tight as you state, maybe look at every other year.
    I also know lots of guys who works side jobs every now and then to pick up extra cash for hunting.

    I can swing the cost of a CO cow tag. Raising a large family doesn't leave much fat to skim off the top, though. That being said, there's always ways to be thrifty; not necessarily cheap, and still live well.

    For example, I took a few of my kids camping, fishing and sightseeing in WY this summer; while also scouting a little for fall. The cost of that trip-gas-food-etc was not far off from what a nonresident bull tag costs in WY; but I would not trade that time with my young children for another tag. At the same time, after taking a trip like that, there is simply that much less cash left. Simple economics. lol

    Really for me, the fun is spending time outdoors. I made a mistake in going out west to hunt in 2014 and am now addicted.

    We'll see if we draw a cow tag in WY. If not, I'll be applying for a cow tag somewhere in the Routt or White River NF in CO. At least this year the WY draw is still earlier. And, if I draw nothing, maybe go a cast and blast in the high country; then, go for a doe antelope on the way home.

    Not sure where you put in for that cow tag, but you’re welcome to ride and camp with me in my camp at no cost and you’re on my way. Assuming I myself draw a tag ha.

    Tim,

    We'll keep in touch - its a small world and we're wise to be open to making new friendships with like minded hunters. If nothing else, I can carry a lot of stuff in to camp for ya. lol

    I pretty much have my WY app ready. For CO, I'm most interested in muzzy or 1st rifle in a unit in the Routt or White River. If another buddy draws and I don't, I would be up for sharing gas costs; I would fish, hunt small game, scout and basically be the camp b*t*h while the other hunted elk.

    Just a thought anyway.
    I live in colorado and have taken about a dozen elk, but they're just not my passion. I carry a tag just in case while I'm deer hunting.

    Some years when state deadlines don't line up this is what I do. Put in for an easy to draw tag in Colorado and u can always turn it back in.

    I have to admit that Colorado can get quite expensive while you learn a new area and perhaps go home empty handed the first couple of years.
    Haha, trading one vice for another! It's amazing the money you can save by making some minor behavioral changes though!
