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.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
