The snows this winter have been hurting some of the deer herds in the northwest part of the state. You might want to wait until the end of march before you make a decision on where to hunt your doe. You can shoot your doe as an extra deer and still hunt bucks if you pick a unit from the "B" list to do it in. The reduced license units can be pretty crowded. Go to statistics and get hunt summaries to look at the numbers. I've always had best luck with does around Meeker. About 11 miles north of Rio Blanco on the east side of route 13. There's a sliver of BLM access and a BLM sign. Good luck. Wear lots of orange!

Not sure if it the area is still as great as it was but area outside Montrose on the western was great for a number of years. Lots of nice tall fat ears running around.

Best of luck in finding the elusive 14 in ears

I would drive up and down Rt. 13 between Rifle and Meeker in the evening with an old pick up with a brush guard. Before you know it....BAM! You'll have a doe on the ground. It's hard to judge the spread when they're moving, though. Just don't park on top of it, you'll mess up the ears. :thumb

Plenty of deer around Meeker.

Elk, Deer, Bear, Turkey...and someday....Moose
