I really don't know how anyone could hunt unit 20 with a rifle for deer and elk, yet they did not list deer and elk for rifle in unit 20.

i was geared up and ready to

i was geared up and ready to kill a doe and buck this black powder season in unit 20. I killed a small buck last year in unit 20. Then the flood hit... Man was i bummed. I mailed in my tags yesterday for a refund, my refunded money will go towards new waterfowl waders!

I noticed the same omission

I noticed the same omission for refunds in unit 20. I figured since the rifle seasons hadn't started yet it was possible to simply turn the tags back in. I guess those who spent points for the tags wouldn't be able to get their money back if they wanted the points reinstated. Maybe it's a wait and see approach by CPW until those seasons are closer to opening? Dunno...

Giving it back to the CPW

I had a buck mzldr tag for unit 20 and was planning to hunt along the Masonville/Storm Mtn road. But like everyone else I was trapped by the floods and could not get out to hunt opening weekend (or the rest of the season). I heard about the refunds that Monday, but I chose not to ask for a refund and consider it as a donation back to the state. Hopefully that small donation will go to good use.

I could apply for this refund

I could apply for this refund for my Unit 29 archery deer tag, but I won't. I did make it out for one day of hunting on opening day. I figure that the license fees are paying for the opportunity to hunt, not necessarily to get an animal. I did get the opportunity to hunt, so even though the floods prevented some hunting opportunity for me, I am good with CDOW keeping that money.
