    Major Elk Herd Counts

    For those who look at these year to year for comparison purposes and herd health. 8,000 animals and above herds only listed. DAU listed then herd name.

    E6 / White River - 42,600
    E2 / Bears Ear - 24,250
    E31 / San Juan - 19,260
    E24 / Disappointment Creek - 17,950
    E33 / Trinchera - 16,510
    E14 / Grand Mesa - 14,040
    E10 / Yellow Creek - 11,420
    E32 / Lower Rio Grande - 10,810
    E20 / Uncompahgre - 8,750

    Thats 58% of the total (281,000) # of animals in Colorado.
    All the above have 16-25 bull to cow/100 ratios.

    Now compare all herd counts against the Big Game book against new and reduced tag areas. That paints a reliable year to year picture of expectations of seeing animals in an area. When you compare % of success, harvest numbers, days to hunt etc etc and all the other publicly known published every year data sets. ( which we know in Colorado is far from accurate and just more data to consider) I think you can really make some solid decisions on where to hunt. Lastly, add in the local CPW meetings minutes and public comment notes sent in to wrap up the picture.
