Colorado DOW Approves Big Game License Numbers

I initially thought after this winters blizzards the antelope herds would have been hit hard. Unfortunate after finally building back up over the years. Well, in the last few months traveling back and forth between Aguilar and Colorado Springs many times I now feel the antelope herds were able to weather the blizzards better then the Division thinks they have. I continue to see large herds and many bucks often and in places I had never seen them before. To me in the area I mentioned they seem to be fine and it's unfortunate the license quotas are going to be limited lower then last year.

Antelope numbers are near normal in this corner of SE Colorado but I'm seeing *zero* deer. None. I don't think they all perished but I do believe they migrated south to the Arkansas. Maybe the winter will thin out the outfitters too. Big $$ for empty leases --- now that's a pleasant thought.

I don't understand the need to be the first state in the union that requires an exclusive mountain lion hunter education certificate.

Why does a mountain lion hunter need more certification than any other type of hunter? Sounds like a solution in search of a problem.

Bitmasher, I agree with you. Most cats are killed in our state with dogs and houndsman know whether it's a male or female that they have treed.
