Sweet. Looks like I drew my 1st choice. Probably the only tag I'll draw this year.

Showing a 500 code. Looking forward to chasing velvet bucks above timberline

From: Treeline

My boy has a 500 code. Should have drawn his second choice. He should have a good hunt in some of my old treeline basins!

From: MathewsMan

Both my kids drew again- looks like I did not- so I don't have anything in Colorado.

From: otcWill
16-May-17
I either drew the best Hybrid tag in the state or my second choice :)

From: Rob in VT

My daughter drew!

From: fubar racin
16-May-17
Not sure if we are hunting bucks or does but my wife my father and myself all 3 drew!

From: tobinsghost
16-May-17
My 11 year old drew and so did I after experiencing point creep in my favorite unit last year! Almost forgot what it feels like to draw a tag!

From: kadbow
16-May-17
Ok, now did I get first or second choice. If I drew first choice I will be doing something different this year, bow hunting a PLO rifle tag.

From: PECO

Wife drew, myself did not, as expected.

From: YZF-88

Nothing for me.

From: yooper89
16-May-17
I applied for preference point as first choice and an almost guaranteed tag as second. I'm showing 590, so should I expect to be chasing velvet this fall?

From: Vids
16-May-17
Yippeee! Finally a 500 code shows up for me. Although, my 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices all had leftovers last year.....either that or I drew the 15 point tag I applied for with only 3 points.

From: 8pointer
16-May-17
I drew something. Hopefully first choice since 99 percent drew it last year with zero points.

From: LUNG$HOT
16-May-17
Looks like I'll be in the "wildlife viewing" category this year as far as deer goes. I had about a 50/50 shot with my 2nd choice.

From: COarcher
16-May-17
Any non-residents showing 500 codes?

From: Fulldraw1972

Points for me this year.

I am a nonresident and have a 500 code.

From: stealthycat
16-May-17
how do you guys see backdoor 500 codes etc?

From: SoDakSooner
16-May-17
I drew my 1st choice......PP, only 2 more years to go....I know, sacriledge, but an early, above timberline rifle hunt. Haven't rifle hunted in earnest in about 10 years.

Go to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife site under hunting, purchase a big game license. Go through it as though you are purchasing a license. Click on Habitat stamp and all other licenses. That page will show you the tags you already bought and a code.

From: LUNG$HOT

Go to cdow website, navigate to the "buy/apply" tab then click it. Enter all your info as though you were going to actually put in for a new license. Then click on the "habitat stamp/other licenses" tab and look at the bottom where it says "products you already have on file". Look a 500 code for deer.

It will be a great fall, because I drew a mulie tag! Look forward to finding a hog to chase over the summer!

"same will happen with elk I imagine ?"

Yessir. Prob beginning of next week.

From: coelker
16-May-17
Looks like I will be sitting in line for 20 hours this year trying for a leftover sell.

From: dennis

Non-res. with a 591 code?

From: 3dirtdevils

From: ilandhunter

From: Captain1039

Looks like I will be back to back. NM 13 archery elk then CO muzzy deer. Cant wait for September!!

From: uteangler
16-May-17
Point for a non res.

16-May-17
Res, drew second choice again where giants roam!

From: Mainer
16-May-17
Changed things up and drew a fourth season rifle tag with one of my brothers. He doesn't bow hunt.

From: speedgoat
16-May-17
Looks like I bombed. Didn't expect to get my first choice, had a 60% chance on a second choice, and thought I had a 100% chance on my third choice. Guess I just traded $$$ for more points this year!

From: longbow
17-May-17
looks like i drew

From: elkster
23-May-17
Do non residents get the same 500 code as residents if they drew a deer tag? I'm seeing both a 491 code and a 591 code.

From: cnelk
23-May-17
elkster - yes.

You drew a deer tag. The 491 code is the application code and the 591 is the successful code
