was going to put in for the draw in unit 61 and was wondering if anyone hunted this unit. It takes 14 pref. points for muzzle loading and 11 for rifle elk. I have 14 points thanks Robert

unit 76

Hey selfbow thanks How much do you know about this unit? I't would not bother me to bow hunt either. I've only been on 1 guided hunt and will probably do a diy on this hunt. The guided hunt was a bad experiece with outfitter back in 1989 so I just do it myself.

I have hunted on the "other side of the mountain" from 76. I know that it is an awesome trophy area. I would advise either taking stock with me or renting them there for this hunt. Some of the area is along roads so you can hunt on foot though.

If I could hunt anywhere in Colorado, I would hunt in 76.

PM me if you need more info.

$25 fee just to apply for a point is rough, not to mention they keep your $250 cow tag money until June. One good thing though is they dropped the price on mule deer. I think it was like $300 for a doe tag and they dropped it down to $79 this year. But it still cost me $50 fee to apply for muledeer and elk . And thats just to get some points.

colo

I've either hunted Wyo, Colo or New Mexico every yr for the last 24 yrs. and just to see some of the views, animals etc it's worth every penny. I've had 3 by-passes in 1991 6 in 2001 and 4 stints since then so I just really enjoy the trip I take my own horses and ride and glass since I can't walk very long. My cardilogist (maybe spelled right) tells me every year to be very carefull and I tell him the best I've got it figured I've got approx. a 10,500 head start to where I need to be one of these days.

Well said!
It's a short trip to heaven from the Continental Divide.

Have you been hunting in Colorado where you didn't have to use your points. 14 pts is 14 years worth of points right?

no selfbow never hunted that area. I seen some good bulls on top of the mountain up above delores lake. I even took a shot at one with my bow. It was going down a hill. I had distance right but shot under his neck. I guess I didn't follow my arrow to the spot. I killed a bear with my bow on top of Spring Mtn. It's the Mtn. behind Mtn. Nebo here in Dardanelle
