thanks

Thanks for the feedback, We had always planned on trying 201 but it always seems like we are a point or two behind. This past year we were told only one non resident gets drawn in these limited draw units in the NW, so we were giving thought two me and my friend trying to draw seperate units. Do you know how many points it took for 201 and 2 last year for Elk?

Here's the numbers for the

Here's the numbers for the 2012 draw results.

Unit 2:  5 non-resident tags drawn from 26 applicants with 21 points.

Unit 10:  5 non-resident tags drawn from 2 applicants with 21 points and 47 applicants with 20 points.  That means 3 applicants of 47 with 20 points got a tag.

Unit 201:  4 non-resident tags drawn from 1 applicant with 24 points, 1 applicant with 23 points, and 14 applicants with 22 points.  Yep, 2 applicants of 14 with 22 points got a tag.

And here's the breakdown of non-residents with 20 or points following the 2012 draw.

20 points  307 individuals

21 points  128 individuals

22 points  27 individuals

23 points  5 individuals

24 points  2 individuals

25 points  1 individual

That's a pretty long line of potential applicants looking for 14 tags each year.  Hopefully you can get lucky and snag a tag in the next couple of years.

21 Pts. Non Resident GMU 201

My friend and I both have 21 pts for Elk and are going to apply to unit 201. I know the odds are against us but I'm not getting any younger. When you look at the number of people with 22 and 21 pts. it's not very encouraging. My friend is 5 years younger than me so hopefully I'll be able to hunt when we do finally get drawn. When we started putting in for the draw when it took 6 pts. in 201.

At some point you have to decide is it worth it to keep waiting or just go for a unit you can draw. Unit 61 and Unit 40 produce some big bulls but not as many as 2, 201, or 10. Good luck Crenshaw even though we may be competing for the same unit.

Good luck to you as well, we are kinda in the same boat, my friend is 59, I am 47. I hope to have many more years, but my buddy is ready to go ahead with it. Our chances of getting drawn in the near future in these NW units apprear slim. I there somewhere on Colorados Parks and Wildlife page you can see the number of folks with certain number of points? I found the report showing the number of minimum PP needing within respective units and the drawing summary.

Here's the link to the CPW

Here's the link to the CPW webpage:

http://wildlife.state.co.us/SiteCollectionDocuments/DOW/Hunting/BigGame/...

The section of the website is located in "Hunting", then "Big Game", the "Statistics, and scroll down to the Elk information.  There is also an explanation of how to interpret the reports.  Lastly, the number of applicants and points is listed by type (resident, non-resident, landowner, etc.) at the end of the report.
