2008 Colorado deer, elk, antelope harvest stats are out!

About time, we've only got 3 weeks left.

Looks like all the units I've been considering are down a notch or two.

2008 Colorado deer, elk, antelope harvest stats are out!

I decided to take a historical look at my units after getting concerned with last year being a "down" year. Every single time they dipped, they bounced back with way above average years, so my elk unit that went from the low 20s average but produced a 12% doozy last year should jump into the high 30s if history holds true from the last time it dipped into that range. Over the last ten years there were 3 drops into the teens 99 was 18%, 2000 jumped to 50%, 2002 dropped 11%, but followed that with a 35% year in 2003. So I think it should be good this year.
But a pessimist might take a different viewpoint.

The stats sing a special kind of music to me Big smile
Their sultry siren song sends me over hill and dale in search of the next tasty doe-eyed creature to blast, rarely leading me astray. Thumbs up
And don't think I haven't spent the last three days updating all my tables, formulating backup plans and plan Cs. Those damn numbers cause me to try a different unit for everything every year. Brick Wall,)
That's ok, I get to see a lot of this beautiful state with a gun in my hand, all thanks to the stats telling me the grass is always greener in a new unit.
