For any of you thinking of hunting in SE Colorado....today makes the 60th continous day of heavy snowcover...although it has been above freezing the last two days with some melting in progress. The antelope seem to be holding their own but we're starting to find dead buck deer. The road kill has been far above average also.

Suit yourself, but this might be a good year to consider other areas.

Plainview, Thanks for the heads up. Have they issued a total number of cattle deaths yet?

I haven't heard any new numbers---still the same 10-15,000 that has been talked about for awhile. The losses in lost weight, aborted/dead newborn calves and cattle yet to be lost will probably exceed the original losses. None of the arroyos and creeks/canals have melted out yet. Hard to say how many are in there.

The deer here look worse than any I have ever seen before. All ribs and hollow eyes. Most haven't moved from wherever they were when the blizzard ended in early January. Nothing to eat--no place to go. They don't even move when you approach them. I see more dead ones all the time as the snow starts to melt.

It's real depressing.

Plainview, Thanks for the update. I knew it was bad but your news is worse than I thought. sad I still remember the other bad blizzard that hit your area in the early 90's. A friend of mine who lives outside of LaJunta said the drifts were 10-15 feet.
