I'm looking into an Elk hunt in 2012. I'm trying to understand each state's system for getting a tag and it becomes a bit confusing as each state is different. Now I'm looking at Colorado. I'm looking at unit 81, in the south central part. It appears that in unit 81 that the best way is to get an Over the Counter Tag, Is that right? Most states have a lottery system but this doesn't seem to be the case in Colorado. Could someone explain Colorado elk tag system. I'm looking at rifle hunting. Thanks for any replys.
