Colorado Unit 38 (Deer)

Hey guys, I just found this website and decided to register to join in on the fun!

This will be my fourth Colorado hunting season and up to this point I have taken 2 cows. My first succesful outing was near Walden CO, where I got very lucky. I basically peaked the first mountain that I could, and immediately scouted a group of 10 or 12 on the other side. My second was near Black Mountain (Maybel?). Sadly, last year I struck out in unit 25 due to heavy snow, bad blistering, and stubbor (or smart) animals.

All of these hunting trips were with a good buddy who has since graduated (University of Colorado) and moved away. So, now I am left to hunt all by my lonesome and I have decided to stay near the front range area and target a mule deer.

I just purchased a second and third rifle tag for deer within unit 38. I have seen plenty of deer on past elk hunts, but I would really like to increase my odds of taking a buck. If anyone has experience in this area, please help!

edit: Turns out I got a DMØ38O2R, so I'll only be going for the buck

How did you end up with 2 licenses for Unit 38? Confused

I don't think so for Unit 38

I don't think so for Unit 38 unless you get a private land only antlerless tag. There isn't a list B  antlerless tag for 38.

Unit 38 Deer

I am trying to plan my first big game hunt for second rifle in unit 38 for deer and I was looking for some advice on places to scout. I have scouted several places and have had no luck. Any guidance at all would be appreciated.
