I was wondering how hard it is for residents to get deer and elk tags in Colorado. Can you buy them over the counter? If not, how many years does it usually take to draw? Can you buy archery tags over the counter? Thanks
99.9% of all the deer tags are draw only the other is usually a doe left over tag. As far as elk it depends on where you want to hunt. There are a lot of over the counter tags for some good units. Archery elk is either sex tags for most of the units but there are some that are draw only. Muzzeloader are draw only for both elk and deer and are unit specific.
Colorado has usually four rifle seasons, fourth season normally being the best. First and fourth usually fill out in the draw, leaving plenty of second and some third season tags, and you can even get the combo (deer/elk). click on the link alpine archer provided to check the regs. and statistics. Good luck
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
