My buddy got a gig north of Durango at around 8700’.
He is the year round salaried manager of a private lake community that is loaded with fish, gives him a house on the water, a boat, requires prescribed burns, and he has to “grow” lake trout that he feeds by hand off his porch. Oh, and there’s...
Sounds like my kind of hunt! I can't wait to run around that place. It kind of chunks up my elk archery season, but when would I ever get this chance again!
Interesting. Thank you. I appreciate it.
I'll fill in the rest of the story when I get it done.
So, I figured I'd never get to see CO 201 as a hunter unless I went after archery antelope doe. Not a highly sought after tag by most.
Well, I drew 1 of 5.
I also don't know a damn thing about hunting unit 201.
I've done rafting trips through Ladore and Dinosaur canyons. So, I drove the roads...
Please, please keep us updated as to what your hear. I'm at work and can't listen. I also know you and Wllm have learned how to translate the CPW dialect!
Maybe a real quick highlights in the state specific section?
Edit - I think I found the link. Jumped the gun a little bit
I also just checked CPW website and my bear and pronghorn are now “accepted” status instead of “entered”.
If you what to know which hunt codes you pulled, each species is starting to switch over.
Might be a day or two for deer and elk.
Dang, I’m not sure how many points per species you burned. But, it sure feels like it’s a good time to get out of the creep game. Moose especially. I’m jealous
I, on the other hand, ended up with all 2nd choices and still climbing the points ladder. Next year might be a cut and run if I can get...
I called CPW to confirm this schedule. Straight from the horses mouth.
The order goes:
-Moose - Monday
-Deer and Elk - Drawn Together - Tues or Wednesday
-Bear - Thursday
-Antelope - Friday
Deer and elk are the two species drawn together because of concurrent seasons. At least that is what I...
I’m getting this a little late and I have to say the the advice given in this thread is pretty right on.
I live near Purgatory ski resort and have hunted the weminuche extensively.
My only other advice would be to look into a drop camp or even a outfit for your first trip.
As a guide I treated...
SO, a point of clarification. I missed one thing = 8391 was the initial sum of unique applicants once the draw program started. That number increased throughout the data collection and processing phase. When the process was completed it finalized at 245,551. I mistook what the gentleman said...
I agree with you. I’m sure there is an explanation beyond what they projected on the computer screen and displayed to the general public. So, In a couple of hours, I will get to work and screen shot what they did display.
Then let’s huddle and see what we can come up with.
I opened the youtube link on my 2nd screen in the office. Watched until they started the draw program process (10 mins) and then they left the room. Then I forgot about it.
About two hours later they walked back on screen suddenly and scared the s(*t out of me.
Then the poor deputy attorney on...
