Colorado Super Secret Double Probation Backdoor deer

So, since I'm a pain the azz, I called the DOW up to ask them what licenses I had on file.  My draw results for bear still aren't being posted on my screen, so I used that as my excuse.  

Anyway, I did manage to find out I have 0 deer points after the 2011 draw, which means I drew my first choice deer tag.  Just FYI if you want to be a real thorn in their sides.

I don't have preference

I don't have preference points since this is my first year applying for draw.  I did manage to find out I drew an elk tag but have not seen anything on the backdoor mule deer yet. By the sounds of it the drawing has taken place but not posted, even on your backdoor method.  Keep us updated.

I now see that I have 1 preference point for mule deer posted. I guess I didn't get drawn for my 1st choice.  Hopefully my 2nd or 3rd?  Suspense is killing me.

What are my odds of drawing

What are my odds of drawing 2nd season rifle for unit 371 with my 2nd and 3rd choices with no preference points for mule deer?

100%

That tag should be guaranteed.  It went to leftovers last year and they bumped the tag numbers by a lot this year.

guys, i don't know if i

guys, i don't know if i should say this, but this "backdoor method" makes me a little leery about meeting some of you colorado boys. just what do you guys to while you're hunting out there anyways?

but, honestly i think i will get in on the colorado apps next year as well, it's too close to home to not apply and there's great hunting there. plus, i'm stuck in kansas until i transfer or retire now that i took a job for BNSF railroad. i'm not leaving this job!

semi official results now

The usual backdoor deer draw is now up, and combined with the official draw page having your updated preference points, you can now determine whether you drew first or later choice. If you have a deer tag and points, then you drew first choice. If you have a point and a deer tag, you drew a later choice.
Good luck

Looks ike I have drawn my

Looks ike I have drawn my second or 3rd choice for mule deer.  Now the question is, which one. 

2nd choice was DM01802R

3rd Choice was DM01801M

I would think it would be the rifle season and not muzzleloader?  Any thoughts?

rifle tag

For sure the rifle tag.  Last year there were several hundred leftovers, this year they increased that tag by another couple hundred.
