I have resisted the urge to make a phone call and find out if I drew my coveted area 10 tag this year. I should pick up the phone and do it but the suspense is sort of adding to the fun a little. I have been waiting 17 years already so a couple more days is not going to kill me. Besides I'm on vacation in a hotel righ now with no cell service. I will check again tomorrow and see what shows up on the Colorado website. I'm not sure the lag time as I have never checked the backdoor thing before this year.
Ex: I agree, it's a service they should provide, regardless of how annoying it gets (kind of like me taking fender bender accidents).
17 points? Somebody I know has 13 and has high hopes for the same unit, another 14. Maybe they need to cool it for a couple of years. I sure hope you drew. I can't believe I'm going to be 50 before I draw a primo unit, seems ridiculous.
Not to hijack, butttt....my turkey season from hell continues (14 days hunted in all), last day tomorrow.
Looked up 2011 licenses drawn, no back door for deer yet, but did see I have been awarded a preference point for deer 2011. Looks like I drew my second choice for buck archery, which is what I expected. This is going to be a great year!
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
