Re: Colorado Preference Points

Ok thanks, anywhere we hunt we park the truck and walk in. we like to wear out the boot leather. i'll talk it over with my dad and see what he thinks. he needs to spend his points pretty soon too.

that's a dandy bull, what'd he score?

He grossed just over 354 but he is missing almost 20 inches of antler. My brother and I found this bull during archery season and he was still all together. He broke off over 5 inches on his right browe tine and he had a split 5th on the left side. My brother had the bull at 19 yards and could not get a clear shot, we stayed on him for 6 hours that day and could not make it happen. I went down during first rifle season and found him the second evening and was lucky enough to take him. The bull has 21 inch thirds and 20 inch fourths, my best bull yet. It was awsome.

Very nice bull. I always felt that the elk quality in 61 was suppressed by the blasting going on in 62, but maybe it's the other way around. Maybe 62 benefits greatly from the management in 61. Either way, great bull.

My family has hunted unit 62 since before I was born (1970). We have been lucky enough to take many elk, deer, and bears. We were never trophy hunters, always just filled the freezer. But in the past four years we have taken seven bulls grossing between 296 up to 363. You just have to put on lots of miles on your boots and know the area better than anyone else, which we can walk out of any hole up there without flashlight, we know it so well. It is harder than it sounds.
