First time I hunted Colorado was 27 years ago and a lot has changed for sure.There were tons of elk and deer then where I went and deer tags were otc.I didn't see a hunter in the woods then either;only at trailheads parking areas.The amount of hunting pressure there now is incredible in comparison and I'd say that's TV and internets fault
Yeah, but they all move to Denver or the Springs. The population of my town is 2200, and has been for 15 years.I remember when the population of Colorado was 1-2 mil. Now it is over 5. And guess what? Some governor predicted it will be over 10 by 2050. They may have more elk then, too, but they also might have more cattle down at the Monfort Feedlot. So what? Maybe they'll have powdered water they can dust on their lawns.
Where is your town? We are all moving there.Yeah, but they all move to Denver or the Springs. The population of my town is 2200, and has been for 15 years.
Lots of elk here, and not a lot of hunters. The units around here are steep and hard to hunt. That keeps most hunters away. I love it.
