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
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
