CO leftover tags

Tomorrow morning, left over tags will go on sale for those who didn't draw what they put in for. Starts at 9:00am and I'll be there as more than likely the only person in line (with my grandson).

Re: Backdoor Draw Results Open for CO

I've got three muleys on the wall already but I'd much rather have elk in the freezer! Down to just a few pounds now and my wife has gotten pretty used to the stuff over the years.

Re: Backdoor Draw Results Open for CO

My wife didn't draw but my grandson got his deer tag. It'll be his first time hunting anything and I'll do my best to help him get a nice buck. Good news is my wife and I should both draw elk next year.

Re: Backdoor Draw Results Open for CO

Looks like I got my deer tag for third season but didn't draw elk. Didn't plan on elk but was hopeful. Still have left over tags coming up!

Re: Turkeys

I had them buggers every morning at the house last month until the day before hunting season opened on them. Haven't seen them since!
