Colorado Deadline

For those of you out there that care or are procrastinating on whether or not to put in for the Colorado draw this year the time is fast approaching, like about 14 hours from when this post is made. 

Good luck on the draws.

Just got the kids applications in.

My daughters finished hunters saftey on the the 22nd and I just finished their applications. I put my younger in for a second season doe tag for unit 41. Put my oldest in for a third season cow in 61. Both as second choice but as youth they should have a chance. If not they are in for 3rd and 4th choices that they should draw, with no problem. OTC Archery elk for me.

I put in for deer and elk

I put in for deer and elk early, but was undecided about bear.

I just put in for the tag, so that takes care of that. Should be an easy tag to get in the draw.

I put in for my muley and elk

I put in for my muley and elk tags last month...I wish I would have just p/p for elk but I got caught up in the possibility of bugeling bulls with a rifle in hand during first rifle. Hey its my first colorado hunting season, at least I can get it out of my system early and start saving for some kind of quality elk hunt a decade or more from now...man, that sounds worse the more I think about it...cow tags and OTC bulls here I come next year, and the year after that, and the year after that, and so on. My muley tag is just about a lock for fourth rifle as well. I just want to get out and hunt this first year, then get serious about trophy prospects during next years and future draws.

Nothing wrong with a cow. The

Nothing wrong with a cow. The meat is outstanding, and you'll still be in bugling bulls.

I couldn't agree more SH.

I couldn't agree more SH.  I'd rather be out hunting a cow, and seeing great bulls during the hunts, each and every year.

Thanks Critter, you could have done this sooner..... I missed it, thought the deadling was the 2nd.... lol

Anyone know how long until your points reset?  Will I still carry my one point from last year into next year if I forgot to apply yesterday????

Straight from the regulations

Straight from the regulations - page 7 states - "Points accumulate until you draw a
first-choice license. If you fail to apply for or have not purchased a license during a
10-year period, all accumulated points for that species are purged from your record
and become void." 

So you are okay!  Now be certain to buy your OTC or leftover license!  Thumbs up

I hate this wait!!!  The anticipation drives me crazy... then once I do know what I have drawn then the wait until I am at hunt camp kills me!
