Sounds like they are setting the stage for another record elk harvest with 146,000 elk licenses being authorized.

Too bad the muley population isn't doing as well. I would like to see more mule deer in CO.

I don't know about the rest of the state but the herd in Northwest Colorado around Craig and Steamboat is doing fine. You can't go more than 1/2 a mile with out seeing a mule deer

That's good and I'm glad to hear it. Hopefully the herd is doing well up there, certainly I would like to see more muley's.

However the state on the whole is in a slide. There was some discussion about it in the mule deer area.

mule deer declining population
