Me and the wife are looking to put in for Elk and Deer this year, and the application cutoff is 7 April.
We haven't hunted in CO as we just moved here last year, and not sure on the best way to approach the applications. We have hunted in Wy, and SD for Whitetail and Antelope with good luck.
We still are unsure of where to hunt, and will continue the informations search. We are from Colorado Springs, and have a camper to camp in while hunting. We do not have wheelers yet, so walking in or jeep trails is the best we can do for now. Probably rifle and 1st season.
Any tricks to the trade?
Should we apply for the "dream" locations in hopes we can get them in the future?
Should we apply for preference points?
What season is best?
Any place that has a good population and isn't private property?
Anything you can help with would be great! Would love for some good wall mounts, but love the meat more than the next. Just trying to get settled and hunting actively for life.
