Me and my brothers have been wanting to go to CO on an elk hunt. We drew for a tag and didn't get one. Then someone told me that you didn't have to draw for a tag. Is there any truth to this? If ya would let me know what we need to do. thanks
Might want to ask your question under Elk or Rocky Mountains.
About the elk tags, it all depends on what unit you want to hunt. There are many that are over the counter. They even have left over cow tags that you can just buy over the counter. The northwest Colorado area is way over populated with elk, so the DOW is anxious to get the numbers down quickly.
Are you looking to still come this year? Third season starts this Saturday and there is a late cow season too.
Thanks for the help cowgal. I guess it makes more sense to ask in the CO or Elk section. Guess ya gotta help the newbie's out. I doubt we will be able to make it up there this year. But best of luck to you
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
