In Colorado you can hunt elk, bear, deer (both mulie and whitetail), moose, pronghorn, coyote, turkeys (two varieties), and all the usual waterfowl, upland, and small game. In Pennsylvania there are no mule deer or pronghorns, there is no season for moose, and the elk licenses are so limited that there might as well not be a season. You can get a non-resident elk license in Colorado for EXACTLY the same price as in Pennsylvania. Yet Colorado is over-priced and Pennsylvania has more variety.
Yeah, I think I understand.
Look, I'm not knocking on Pennsylvania. I hear that it's a great state for deer hunting, as long as you don't expect a trophy. I also hear the hills are quite beautiful. But don't knock on Colorado for being too expensive when the prices here are EXACTLY in line with every other Western state. That's all I'm saying.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
