congrats on that draw! i'm

congrats on that draw! i'm glad you drew with your father, but what about your son? you might not have been putting him in for it all this time though.

still, you could use his young legs to pack out the bulls you guys get!

 

good luck on your hunt. our application period for elk in kansas doesn't open until june 8th, but i'll be in for it again. mule deer opens then as well with the drawing in july. i really want the oppertunity to kill one in my home state, because the hunting oppertunity is awesome... once you get the tag!

with the computer systems as they are today, you'd think the drawing would close one night and drawing results could be posted the next morning since it's all electronic.

Well my son will definately

Well my son will definately be going along as he is always a part of our trips. I never got him into putting in for long term points building choosing instead to hunt first season draw units that he gets a tag every other year at the worst and some times every year. It's worked out for him though as 2 years ago when he was 16 he killed a bull that grossed 309 and actually had 6 of his points broken off from either half of the length to nearly all so you can imagine what it would have scored if it was all intact.

I agree with the draw results as New Mexico is the only state I have had experience that posts the draw on the date stated and credits your card back the money that same day.

  My cousin and I began

 

My cousin and I began applying for mule deer points years ago. About 3 years into it he got re-married and that was that!

I now have 11 points for mule deer and had plan to go there some day. If ya see some big ones let me know. Of course they may of died of old age before I get a tag.

Good luck in unit 10!

Congrats to you!!!!  I bet it

Congrats to you!!!!  I bet it will make for a SLOW next couple of months, huh? Wink

Just curious, if I applied for just a point, can I go on the site and will it say somewhere that I now have 1 point??? I have never applied to Colorado prior to this year, so I am not sure how to keep track of that.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the information. Btw I think 330 is a pretty good bull and one to be proud of. Moosehead is definately on my short list as well as a few other places. I have a fairly local guy that wants to take his vacation and go with us just for the experience as he's still a few years away from drawing himself so that should help a lot.

The more information and planning the better though. I like that you didn't see any other hunters out there. How far back in did you have to go to get away from everyone?

unit 10

I packed mine out for 2 and a half miles and moosehead is about 5 or 6 miles long, a lot of water holes to. Fairly easy walking though. There were hunters down low but none on top,guess they did not want to have to pack one that far. serviceberry draw and tanks peak we saw some nice bulls to. Just do your scouting and stick with it, it is worth it! Being out of state we scouted hard for three days before season opened and it paid off, I shot mine first morning while we were watching two 5x5 bulls with beams as big as my arms!   Good Luck  :thumbsup1:
