    Colorado hunting changes.

    Agreed. Big think to pay attention to are restricted ATV units or portions of units where they are not allowed. I hunted in a non-ATV area one time with my rifle near Meeker. Very few people. I got a raggy. I hunted another time with my bow around Gunnison. It was so loaded with people that it wasn't even funny. And don't forget - there is a muzzleloader season right during the middle of bow season. I dealt with that too. Needless to say - tag soup.

    Colorado hunting changes.

    Here is a list of the price changes https://cpw.state.co.us/aboutus/Pages/Our-Story-2019-Changes.aspx#ParkFees Elk and deer did not go up a penny for non-residents unless you plan on entering a draw. It is the same price as last year. Most of the increases were for Residents. The Qualifying license means that you must buy a Turkey license or a Small Game license in order to apply for the big game draw. If you are hunting over the counter then you don't need to worry about it. "Qualifying License" is a really bad way to describe it. But they're all on dope now anyway, eh. You can read some at the first link but it is best explained in the second link (page 6). https://cpw.state.co.us/qualifyinglicenses https://cpw.state.co.us/Documents/RulesRegs/Brochure/BigGame/biggame.pdf The small games license for non-res is $81.75. If you enter a draw then you could say the price went up $81.75. Salty but probably not the difference between going and not going. But it would burn my ass to buy it, not get drawn, and never use it. Hell, would you end up using it anyway? It's like Cuomo thought of it. He's probably jealous. Instead of just saying, "we are raising our rates", they force you to buy something you will likely never use - drawn or not - unless you live close to Colorado. This has to be the worst example of marketing I have ever seen in my life. By the way, I believe I read that this is the first time licenses have increased (in some fashion) for non-residents since 2006. Don't quote me on it but I am pretty sure I read that. So if you are hunting OTC (over-the-counter) not much has changed. But it does really stink you have to buy the turkey license or small gamed license to apply for a big game draw. Doesn't make much sense but..... toke toke.
  3. Doesn't look like you are going to have a lot of treestand opportunities. I'd probably stay inside the property border 100 yards and make sure you practice - A LOT - all year. I don't know, it looks to only be 200 yards wide. And then there is the handle, which is probably useless for hunting unless you aim for the head. It is a little barren and given how skinny it is you may be waiting a few years for it to be what you want. Only one way in too. That's OK because I have the same problem but my land is L shaped. If you can find a piece of property that is L shaped then it opens up a world of opportunities as you are certain to have a wide section of it. You also said it is next door to a farm. They might let you hunt BUT how many people do they already let hunt? You may have some border huggers and that would suck on something that narrow. Going across property borders to track deer sucks. It starts a world of drama. That combined with how skinny it is and the uncertainty of the farm next door makes this a thumbs down for me. If you have the money to buy property then make sure you get the absolute best thing you can. Just my .02

    Weather for Opening Day STier Gun 2018

    I am in the southern portion of 8N. The rails on my deck have 8-10" on them. That is more than what we were supposed to get or at least more than I thought we were supposed to get. It is heavy and wet too or there might be a lot more. Be safe out there people.

    Gawrysiak 19 pt buck

    Starving people in the world..... and you want a Go Fund Me page to pay for your deer mount? LOL. Make a replica of the rack, sell it to Bass Pro, and then you should be able to get a full body mount with some left over to put in a more meaningful GoFundMe account.

  13. Be careful what you send to your "buddies".
  14. We don't live there. If we had bamboons and they were a nuisance round here like stated above then it wouldnt be odd to see people shoot them. Still, he should have known better with the day/age we live in and the job he has. I don't post anything on forums and I don't do social media. Just too much B.S. anymore.
