UNIT # 40

Hi There, I'm new to this site and I'm sure you've beat this to death already. I think I posted on the wrong forum earlier. I am in need of any info any body might have on area #40, Myself and my buddy have 19 pts each. We were holding out for the N.W. corner but that's never going to happen, so we've decided to use the pts this coming year(2012). Where not getting any younger.I have been looking into area 40 and am getting alot of mixed reviews. I would sure appreciate any info someone might have on this area. My other option was the Bosque del Oso in area 851 but there again alot of mixed reviews. By the way were from Michigan.

Thanks

Rick

I wasn't sure. The units are so far apart, and I didn't think unit 851 by the New Mexico border was that good to waste 19 points on.

AREA 40

Sorry it was Colorado, and I was also looking into  area 851, it was something I had heard about and thought somebody might have some thoughts on the area.

Thanks

How long did it take to get those points? I can't save up more than 2 points before I use them up.

pts

We missed one year, I told my buddy when we started we would be old men when we were able to draw area 10, but now I'm sure we will never be able to draw it, so that's why we are going to try for a different one.

If you learn how to play the point game you can get points and still hunt every year.  I have 16 elk and deer points here in Colorado and I have also hunted both deer and elk every year here in Colorado.

Not if I want to hunt my

Not if I want to hunt my unit. The only way I can do it is to take a point for 1st choice, and then take a cow for 2nd choice, but the minute I go for a bull. I lose the points.
