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!
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
