Colorado unit 3 for deer ?

Hey guys I don't have a clue about unit 3 and was wandering if anyone new of decent spot to get a deer. A friend of mine that is a tag brocure just called and asked if I wanted 4 deer tags for this 2nd season for dirt cheap (price of the tag). I was wandering if was worth getting the tags and hunting this weekend?

Any help would be appreciated! Yes

Thanks

Re: Colorado unit 3 for deer ?

unit 3 has lot of deer and a lot of BLM, however with it comes lots of hunters as you know. Herd numbers there are really good and your odds of shooting one are really good as well. There's not a lot of real big bucks around there this time of year however. not sure if you're wanting to trophy hunt or not. North of maybell there's some nice hunting spots on BLM, if you have a map, check out bald mountain and godiva rim

hellomcfly thanks for the excellent info. Thumbs up I am just looking to get something in the freezer (mine is empty for the first time in years). It has been a rough year for us so far, NO ELK this year, but hope to change that this weekend with a couple of deer.

Thanks again.

Quinton,
There's a fair amount of state and BLM lands, and you can kind of road hunt the whole unit. However, I wouldn't expect to see many great deer on public land, but they do exist. That being said, there is plenty of deer.

Hey Mark thanks for the info. One great thing about big muledeer is they are one of the smartest animals on the planet and you never know where one might pop up. Yes
