Just remember that although it's possible it could be that only one person with the minimum points drew and many more went without. I watch the points closely and almost without fail it will take me one more that listed in the guide for that reason.
I have never seen the first left over draw list on line. When ever I have checked the left over draw box they send a list out. It may of changed some since the last time that I did it but I am sure that they don't publish that list until after the left over draw is complete.
You can subscribe to Colorado Outdoors Magazine, and if you check the right box they will send you the annual Preference Points Issue. I use it because it is easier than the website. But just for giggles, try Monstermuleys.com; they have a really easy to use preference point look-up system. It may not be super-accurate but it's pretty close. The charts Colo.

By the way, I was once a Vermonter about 45 years ago, and still go there from time to time....great fishing!

As soon as they post the statistics, that crazy number cruncher Exbiologist goes out and extracts the data, before hand...He's crazy though! ...I already get so wound up in those stats as it is, NO WAY I could dig that far! ...but thanks Ex!!! I think I owe ya one for my tag this year!
I often use fresh earth dryer sheets while drying my clothes, after washing them in scent free soap. At some point I started putting these dryer sheets in the plastic tubs that I store my hunting clothes in. This seems to work very will. Anytime I pull my clothes out of the box they reek of fresh earth.
I'm too tight to be buying a bunch of scent loc, which I don't believe in. So this is a good and cheap alternative. I like it so much I even toss one in my backpack to help cover the...
