I moved to Grand Junction last summer but I hunted in Utah last year, to aviod the out of state fees. I now have resident status and I am spending a large amount of time searching the web and talking to locals, trying to get intel on hunting in this state. I have participated in Forums in the past and I am finding that this is one of the best for information on hunting Colorado. I am trying to determine which hunts to put in for and am having a hard time figuring out the odds tables.
I am planning on doing OTC archery elk and building Preference points for 40 or 61. I would like to put my daughter in for a cow elk tag but I would also like to starting getting her Preference points. I would like to get her a limited cow tag, so that she is eligible for the late season. The tables show the minimum points but how do you determine if she can draw the tag as a second choice? I have spent many hours staring at the draw summaries and I have learned the meaning of the phrase "it's all Greek to me."I would also appreciate any advice on good units, for her to have a good experience.
I am also looking into the same thing for deer. Are there any local units that can be drawn as a second choice for Archery?
I understand that we are talking about general season units. I would appreciate just being pointed in the right direction. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
