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.
It's harder to get deer tags here than elk. I'd pick another state for deer.

As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it.

Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
