i am just wondering my chance of tagging out for both elk and deer in unit 77 and 78 in colorado, or should i plan on hunting them at diferent times. I am wanting to do a bow hunt in the next couple of years. i now you have to draw a deer tag and can buy a elk tag over the counter.
not good. Most guys who hunt deer in the high country are going to be doing a spot and stalk hunt in the alpine stuff. When they are elk hunting they will be going after them in the timber. Unless you want to sit waterholes, your chance of bumping into one while hunting the other isn't very good. You'd have to commit to one at a time, and leave plenty of time for both.
And to be more specific, your odds are 28.6% for deer in 77 and 9.4% for elk. 26.2% for deer in 78 and 13.4% for elk. So to kill both in 77 your odds are 2.3%, and in 78 3.5%.
Like most of you I'm certain, I love to shoot my guns. I enjoy shot after shot all day long at the shooting range… whether it is with one of my Shotguns, one of my rifles, or with my handgun… or when the crosshairs are on a big game animal in a safe shooting scenario. I love to shoot! What I don’t have the same excitement about is cleaning my gun afterwards.Now this is not going to be gun cleaning 101 as every kit comes with its own set of directions and the internet also has a great deal...
