I'm new to western hunting and noticed there are a many leftover elk archery tags in the 7,8,9,19 units. They are all together in the far northern part of the state. There have to be many factors for so many leftovers, does anyone know why? I thought maybe because there are fewer animals or less public land to hunt.
Another newbie question. I don't know what areas you can hunt with an over the counter archery tag for elk and/or deer. Is it all areas that are not part of the drawing system? I've looked through the Colorado wildlife website and don't quite understand.
