    Wyoming general question

    Yes ^ typically in any western state you can always use a bow in rifle season, but you have to wear orange. Side note in MT you have to wear orange when hunting the spring bear season with a bow, because it's technically a rifle season.

    CO - Tag Allocation R v. NR - CORA Data

    Interesting WA, OR, and UT the states other than CO with general OTC tags all require a FOIA, or whatever their state calls it, request to get the allocation information. Funny that states seem reluctant to share this information with their residents.

    Help planning an elk hunt

    You raise a good point, although if I may... "We need to recruit more people millennials into shooting and hunting" Babyboomers don't matter at this point, teaching kids is great but kids don't control their own time and can't take themselves hunting, the biggest focus needs to be on adult...

    CO - Tag Allocation R v. NR - CORA Data

    Also look at the drop in 581 and 580 (limited draw tags) and the growth in OTC tags 055, 054 and then res and NR rifle. Essentially more and more Limited tags are going to OTC and thus driving point creep as more people are applying for less tags. Yes there are more OTC opportunities but this...

    CO - Tag Allocation R v. NR - CORA Data

    "I like it when the folks at the capital can't spend money they don't have." - How about when the state taxes weed, but then has to give back the money because of TABOR and can't improve transportation or schools with those funds. The Colorado economy is booming yet we are at the very bottom...

    My Two-year HOWA Experiment

    BF I think what were are all kinda forgetting, is that this rifle is not necessarily for the personal who is so entrenched in hunting that he belongs to a hunting forum. This rifle is more for I shoot a .264 win mag with a 24” barrel and I get the performance add, but for a hunting I wouldn’t...

    West elk wilderness

    Tough to say when you say "before" generally I would tell a NR pick a spot 3-4 hours away from Denver and at least 45 min to an hour off of I-70. But honestly you aren't going to be alone in any OTC unit...

    Looking for an option in the next 3 years

    You are all good, and I 100% agree you can definitely be successful in WY as a NR in spite of the rule. I saw two bulls duking it out and bugling their heads off during pronghorn season in Oct on BLM 50miles from a wilderness area, my gripe is that this law is totally antithetical to the north...

    CO - Tag Allocation R v. NR - CORA Data

    To grasshoppers point about talking focusing on bulls: CO issued 37,746 OTC bull/either sex tags in 2018 to Nonresidents Wyoming issued 4,493.

    Mountain Bikes on Wyoming BLM Land

    Yes and no... Yes it's legal as long as you are on public land. Whether it's practical depends on the spot and your setup. Riding uphill with a 30lb-45lb pack on sucks to the point of almost being impossible (keep in mind if a runner and biker are in similar physically shape a runner will...

    CO - Tag Allocation R v. NR - CORA Data

    I worked for a state agency for a while, my parents were teachers, and just growing up in CO I know a number of people who work for the state/public entities. I can tell you that license allocation and CPAW finance are completely intertwined and that without repealing or revising TABOR (Tax...

    West elk wilderness

    Absolutely. In any elk unit look at cover and topography as much as roads. Hiking in 1-2 hours typically gets you to possible elk sanctuary. 2 hours could be 1 mile if it means losing 500 then gaining 600ft through oak brush/willows/fallen timber. A lot of guys think getting in deep is...

    Wilderness in and of itself does not denote tough access... but your thinking the right way.

    West elk wilderness

    53 and 54 are in the top most asked about CO units aside from 28/18/371. There is an outfitter on the west side of 53, another one on the east. It’s had a 200% increase in archery hunters since 2010, and most of the unit is within reasonable walking distance of a road. Don’t forget their will...
