Colorado Leftover rifle buck deer tags

The following is a list of Colorado rifle deer units with unfilled tag quotas. These must still pass through the leftover draw process to make it to leftovers. However, very few people take advantage of the leftover draw, and so most of this list should make it to leftovers.
Units 7/8 4th season
Units 9/19/191 2nd, 3rd and 4th season
Unit 16 3rd season (only 4 tags left)
Units 18/28/37/371 2nd season
Unit 20 2nd and 3rd season
Units 27/181 2nd and 3rd season
Unit 29 2nd, 3rd, and 4th season
Unit 33 2nd season
Unit 34 2nd season
Unit 38 2nd and 3rd season

Colorado Leftovers go on Sale August 10th, after the leftover draw.

Re: Colorado Leftover rifle buck deer tags

Like I stated elsewhere Ex, I just do not know how you do it,...crunching as many numbers as you do...all the darn time wuld send me tot eh looney bin! I get kind crazy each winter weeding through all the statistics for just a month or so!

But, by the statistics I can tell that I also got my 1st choice pronghorn tag!

Three 1st choice tags in one year! How in the world am I going to get all this hunting done?! Guess that is a good problem to have though! Wacko

Re: Colorado Leftover rifle buck deer tags

Sweet, I just tried to backdoor the antelope, but still not seeing anything. I know I must have a tag though based on the stats.

Oh, and did I mention I love pouring over the statistics. In love I already built my spreadsheet showing what tags can be drawn 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice and leftovers for next year. But these dang stats keep pulling me into different units every year. I could just sit still and keep hunting the same places over and over, but what fun would that be? You know, I've got "grass is always greener" disease. Even built a sweet landowner database for hunting down leads on private land antlerless tags.
But now I'm pretty flush with tags, might have something like 6 antelope, 3 elk tags, and a deer tag or two to fill before it's all over.

Leads on private land antlerless hunts

Greetings!  A friend and I have licenses for unit 33 outside Rifle, Colorado to hunt does on private land this weekend. We have called all over trying to find a place to hunt with no success.  A web search led me to your post re your database...If you have any knowledge you would be willing to share at this late date in the season to help us find a spot to hunt this coming weekend, 29-30 Janaury 2011, that would be very helpful!

It never ceases to amaze me

It never ceases to amaze me how many people put in and waste money getting tags without doing any research and having a place to hunt first!!!  Case in point in this thread!!!
