Re: COLO MULIE DRAWS ARE ONLINE

My wife drew a plains license. It's not a premier area, but she's going to hunt some great country. I drew a muzz license for southcentral CO. Not in an area known for monsters, but there could sure be a stud or two there. Good luck to all in the upcoming season. A few yrs back I went to the annual...

Re: Montrose colorado

Well IF you had priv land to hunt on around Montrose you could get your tags off the LEFTOVER list and not burn any points . Leftover tags neither use or accumulate points. I think the new rules let points pile up as loing as you buy a COlo hunt license of some kind every two yrs. If you make a mist...

Re: Mountain Rifle DM in either .260 or .25-06

I'd go with the .260 to keep weight down. Ounces are important when spending days hiking the high country. But onthe other hand the .25-06 is the more versatile cartridge.

Re: Co GMU 54

Take 135 north out of Gunnison, go a few miles, turn left up a long valley, hunt elk.

I'll be next door in 55 if you get stuck as the road is a bit iffy near the top some times.

Best hotel in world is the Comfort Inn on rt 50 in downtown Gunnison. Rooms about $59 in hunt season.

Good luck.

Re: ATV question

When I bought an ATV ( actually ATC ) I was cautioned against getting a 250 or smaller as at high elevation they run out of power(so do I). Altho I like my Big Red a lot, a 400 cc engine would definitely have been better. When I get wife a 4x4 ATV it will definitiely be 400-500 cc for the powwer. So...

Re: colorado elk draw results are out

We put in for 3forks Ranch RFW bull elk tags with no hope of draw. We didnt draw but got the points accumulated. We like the OTC bull tags anyway, but in a few yrs we'll draw 3forks once the points accumulate and I can take the wife on a first class hunt I coulndt afford otherwise.
