We have some units here in Colorado that you can a tag with no points. As an example. Unit 55 1st rifle either sex is no points. Weather is usually still pretty good that time of the year. What I like about the 1st rifle season is it's just for elk. No deer hunters will be hunting. No muzzleloader or bow hunters either, and you catch the end of the rut. My favorite season. If it has a drawback is it's only 5 days compared to 9 days for the other seasons.

Makes me and them feel confident that if we were to somehow separate that they...
