I have been doing quite a bit of research on whch hunts I want to apply for this season. The drawing is right around the corner. Since I won't have much vacation to take during the season I have been looking at Game Units close to Denver. I have narrowed my units down to 28, 35, 36, 37, 45, 49, 500, 501. Some of these are not listed on the preference points list. The preference points needed is somewhat confusing.
I have looked at last seasons success rates for these units for both elk and mule deer.
I am a new resident with 0 preference points. I would like to hunt rifle 1st choice, muzzleloader second choice. 1st and second seasons would be best.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
