GMU 61 FINALLY

After 11 years of waiting finally 61 archery is a go, scouting starts May 29th. I know the offical reports are not out but my points went to zero and from what I have read and been told that means that it is a done deal fingers crossed. I have read every comment on every hunting site about 61 and asking a few people that have been writing about it for years I thank you. I will post scounting reports and post hunt pictures hopefully. Thumbs up What? Dancing

Good Luck!!

I have hunted bears there twice and I can tell you there are som amazing bulls in the area. one bull in particular from 2009 had perfectly symetrical forked sword points. one of the most incredible bulls I've had a chance to see in person. I cant wait to see what you turn-up.

Hey Vinny- not to rain on

Hey Vinny- not to rain on your parade but it appears that CPW are doing things a bit different this year. It looks like they're taking down everyone's points until the post the results. For example, I only applied for a PP for deer, but they took my PP down. I hope you drew the tag, but would say it's a given just because your PP are gone. Good luck!

Looks like they had the mountain goat and sheep drawing , I was unsuccessful.  Did they have the deer and Elk drawing for colorado yet?  I know they won't be posted till 29th or so.  I was hoping to use backdoor method to see if I at least drew a tag.  As of now, I don't see anything.

It sounds like they might have got rid of the backdoor method which is a bummer they pulled my points down, but it doesn't mean I drew my tag though but I can only hope.

Dangit, I was afraid of that.

Dangit, I was afraid of that. When they take down the points it meens they have ran the draw for that species. They sift through the results to make sure that they didnt have some glitch in the program and a guy with 0pps drew a tag in 61. They have been working on eliminating the backdoor methods for the last few years cause they would get calls constantly from people saying, "I saw my preference points went from 37 to 0, did you steal my preference points, or did i draw my sasquatch tag". Obviously im making a little bit of fun here, but you can only imagine what 1000 calls a day like that do to the staff at HQ. 

Not much longer and you'll know for sure, you are right in the ball park preference point wise if you've been waiting 11 years.

Backdoor for deer is up now.

Backdoor for deer is up now. Go in and act like your going to buy a license, and if you have a code in the 500's it means you drew.
