Moving to Colorado soon

I am moving to Colorado soon, and was wondering where the good loactions for deer and bear are for my sons and I do enjoy hunting here in Northern California. We are hoping that we will love it is Colorado even more.. We won;t be there til sometime in July of 2009 near the Pueblo West/Colorado Springs area. Just looking for some advice from those that know the area so while the wife is unpacking we can go do what we do....LOL

Unfortunately, you need to be living here continuously for 6 months prior to getting or applying for a license to be a resident, unless you're active military or a student. Just the way it is.

You have lots of time to do home work . Get on the colorado DOW site big game stats and study draw odds and sucess rates. then get good maps of prospect areas .I'd look for little patches of overlooked public land mixed in with private. I know walsenberg, laveta, and trinidad areas have lots of bear. and you shoulden't have to go far for deer,some of the plains units south and east of pueblo may be worth looking into.Also start collecting pronghorn points there are a ton of them in your part of the state! Good luck
