Re: How to tell elk points needed to draw tag in Colorado?

Karl, the point summary is up:
http://wildlife.state.co.us/NR/rdonlyres/FAB33AB5-33BA-4BF4-9E40-12418F55E7BB/0/ElkMinPP10.pdf
But the points required vary a little bit every year. It is demand based, not an arbitrary limit set by the DOW. The muzzleloader tag demand won't stabilize for a few years either. This year, a lot of guys put bull tags in as more than just a first choice, making cow tags easier to draw than normal. I don't expect that to continue for too much longer, and certain units will continue to rise in their point requirements.
