Colorado backdoor elk is up

Like it says, but if you had 2nd, 3rd or 4th choices, we won't know what you drew.  All I know is I got a 580 Res Elk, which means I drew some kind of muzzleloader tag.

Elk

Our camp drew our 4th season either sex tags, now I hope my son draws his 4th season buck tag. Good luck everyone hope you got your tag.

Well with the tag cuts again

Well with the tag cuts again and with the back door results it looks like I got an OTC bull tag, which is what I asked for if I did not draw my other tag...because I have no 500 code listed under mine.

It looks like I drew either

It looks like I drew either my 1st or 2nd choice.  Happy either way!  I saw one post on here that said a friend of his only received a preference point after thinking he drew a tag with a 500 code.  Has this happened to anyone else?  Any idea what that code number means?

I had 590.  Does that

I had 590.  Does that indicate bull or cow (resident)?

Are you sure that it wasn't

Are you sure that it wasn't 580?  If you put in for multiple hunts such as a muzzle loader bull tag for the first choice and then a cow tag as a second choice you won't know which one you drew until the email comes out.

I just double checked, it was

I just double checked, it was 580.  First choice was bull archery, second choice was private land cow rifle.  Guess I'll have to wait until results are posted.  Thanks!

I estimate having a 0%

I estimate having a 0% percent chance of drawing my first choice until 2030 (literally).

I'll have to live with my second choice, still happy I drew, didn't burn points, and don't have to find a new OTC unit!!!

Edit:  Just for the heck of it, I checked on my preference points.  Says I have none.  Theres no way I drew this tag on 2 points...but I'm kinda daydreaming now.  Doesn't the hybrid draw require 5 points or something?

its not foolproof

You of course have to wait for the official draw results before seeing your preference points and what tag you really drew.  If you're curious, you can call the DOW like I did.

Do they get agitated with

Do they get agitated with calls like that?   Did they let you know what tag you drew?

yeah, i'm sure they get annoyed

But too effing bad for them.  Might not be as fun as Sasquatch and Yeti reports, but it's part of their job.  But the person I called is someone I know personally, she of course hemmed and hawed about not supposed to give me my girlfriend's draw status, but I told her to just do it anyway.  She's got 30 days left before retirement, I'm sure she doesn't care enough to argue.
