Sitting this year out in Colorado.

We chose to instead lease some property (which I dont really like doing) in Illinois and after dealing with the neighbor there last weekend I am wishing I had applied for HC deer with my bow instead....I guarantee the fat retard trespassing on Saturday isn't going to be on any mountaintops in his remaining lifetime.....

I put in for 67, 2nd season with 5 points as a NR. It was an 88% chance with 3 last year and they are increasing tags this year so I'm hoping I sneak in!
I’m in a similar situation, I applied with 4 points for a second season tag that the last couple years has been around 50% with 3 points. I’m not overly optimistic but there’s a chance.

I'm in for an early rifle deer tag that I could've drawn by the skin of my teeth last year. I'm hoping that the later season dates in 2nd/3rd/4th shift some demand away from the earlier hunts, or at least keeps the odds somewhat constant.

I bet you are correct that early season tags will stay same or in some cases drop. Wouldn’t surprise me if there is also a pause in elk point creep this year.

I have not hunted a deer west of I 25 in at least 15 years, all my hunts have been on the eastern plains. Hope fully the unit I chose, I can draw with 2nd choice. I still want to get 1 or 2 more points before I blow them all. I'm trying to figure out if those high country early rifle is all that they are cracked up to be or if there are a ton of archers there?

I am betting that Dave will have some pretty interesting analysis after the draws. 2021 like 2020 is going to be quite the year for the system. A LOT of people are betting that the new seasons in CO are going to be a detriment to deer trophy potential. We will see what high point holders deem as worth it to just get out of the trap and hope for the best.

I groan every time I hit the CPW Web site, but at least it's gotten better over the past few years.

Good luck guys. I'm on my last of a 4-year points rotation, so this is another PP > EasyDrawZone combo, one I'm sure I'll get. Next year will be the nail biter for me...

sheep moose goat with the bow for me.... no elk/deer this year....

did you see they extended the deadline until Friday I think??
could've helped a lot of hunters out with point creep etc....but you know CO wants that $$$ more than proving a point about deadlines....

I hope to draw this year and get out of the race... Burning 9 points on a 2 point unit so pretty sure I will draw just hope the wifes 4 points are enough... I had my sights set on a couple different units but with the point creep this year I wasnt taken any chances.... Good luck every one................

I played it a little bit different on deer this year.

My first choice muzzle loader is a 50/50 chance. If I don't draw my first choice I should have a 75/100 chance for my second chance. If neither one of those I have a 100% chance for my 3rd choice. All muzzle loader tags.

Points for elk and pronghorn.

I saw that Colorado set a record for # of tags applied for across the board. So their little computer snafu worked out perfectly for them and it should make it a little harder to get the tags that we want.
