Colorado left over 1st season bull tags

Why are there so many left over 1st rifle bull tags north of Glenwood springs area?

I didn't look up all those

I didn't look up all those units, but 11, and 12 are quota tags. That means at the end of the day you have to call in to see if the quota of kills has been met. If it has you're done hunting. This is how the DOW regulates the herd, and gets to sell a lot of tags. They don't care how many tags they sell. It's a lousy tag to get. You could be done hunting after the first day.

They do that with mountain lions too, and maybe bears in some units.

I haven't heard of those

I haven't heard of those quota units before where there is a limit to the number of animals actually harvested. Are there different quotas for each season? 11 and 12 are OTC units, so it seems like whatever quota was in place would only be able to apply to 1st rifle?

 

Thanks for helping clear that up.

The tags that are leftover

The tags that are leftover are quota tags. Keep in mind that any tag that's leftover at this stage has a good reason.

It's all in the brochure.

I've never heard of a quota

I've never heard of a quota tag either.  Where in the brochure?  I couldn't find anything about it.

Sorry, I read the chart too

Sorry, I read the chart too fast, and was looking at unit 9 abover 11-12.

 

I have no idea why there's so many tags left for 1st rifle. I do wish the units were closer to me. I have no options like that near me.
