I am going to suppose that

I am going to suppose that you are a non resident of Colorado. So with 12 points you are really in limbo land. Not enough for a really great unit and too many to waist on a lesser unit.

However you may be able to draw a unit 66 muzzle loader tag with 12 points. You need to check out the statistics page on the Parks and Wildlife web page.

Just curious, and i'm not

Just curious, and i'm not busting your chops. I assume it took you 12 years to get these points? You haven't done any research?

yes we do research, we were thinking of muzzleload units 66 or 67.just thought I might get a little  more help.(some areas we may not have thought of). 12 years ago we hunted unit 10,all four of us filled our tags but we will never see 10 again.Is unit 66 or 67 better?thanks again for any additional help
