Colorado Draw Results
It's Colorado week! Good luck to all. Expecting some large point jumps just hope it's not a 2.5 point jump for my unit. Anyone guesses on which day we will hear?
Not in this year but do the landowners find out the same day as hunters if they got vouchers?
Brettpsu, you didn’t get your results?
I'm betting on Tues for deer and Wed for elk. I'm almost as interested to see the overall point creep landscape in deer tags as I am to find out my results.
No I did not. Just curious what day others are thinking results will be out.
Brettpsu, you didn’t get your results?
Landowners are on the same draw so their results are out at the same time- However I don’t think they can check online but need to call the program to find out or wait for the voucher to be mailed.
I haven’t heard anything either. Sometime this week hopefully.
$39.75 here as well, I believe that is a bear tag.
Wild wilderness is correct about landowners. I'm not even sure they can call but have to wait for vouchers to be mailed out.
Landowners cannot find out until the envelope shows up in your box. At least I am unaware of another way so far.....
Back when Eric Slater was in the LO program they used to be able to call if they wanted to find out. The new director might have different policies
They did the same thing last Year. Everyone got all excited and they released bear first. Lol. Elk was last.
My daughter drew her bear preference point!
Another near tag for me. No reason to carry bear sprays 'cause none will come close now.
Drew my first NR bear tag for 047
Credit card charge for a deer tag for me. 21 deer points went to zero.
Colorado seriously needs to upgrade their schedule for results posting. Gotta be about the slowest state for results.
Deer charged for me. Now which one? I had 4 options.
I am thinking you guys know it's deer, not speed goat because you didn't put in for pronghorn? Ha it could be either one.
Treeline ust be either from Wyoming or not put in for nonresident elk...that is the slowest state. But CO is a close second, why can't we all use Nevada's IT contractor.
Got a charge for my first Colorado deer tag this morning. Only put in for one option out on the Plains so I'll be seeing y'all in November!
I’ll be out there in early September, drew my deer tag.
Credit card was charged. Archery deer unit 2. YES!!! Now hoping for a good hunt.
Deer CC charge pending but nothing showing yet in my account.
Not looking good for me. No CC hit and now I have one more deer point (as of May 8, 2021). That means point creep went from 7 points guaranteed last year to not drawing this year with 10 points. Off the charts.
Bowman that hard to believe 4 points of creep - at least of point creep in one year?? What unit?
I put in for hunt code "X" for deer. Last year I drew "X" on second choice, second choice cleared and most of 3rd (if not all, I have to check). This year I did not draw it on second choice!!!! I'm shocked, and for real butt hurt. .
I am hearing $50 for moose preference are hitting bank account. Not mine yet. So that got to mean I drew a moose tag
I just checked, the same hunt code I got last year on second choice, some drew on fourth choice. This year I did same hunt code, second choice, and did not draw.
Got 103 plains ES tag. Just got the email.
Now I am 50 dollars poorer and not a moose hunter :(
PECO - sounds like the same unit my buddy and I put in for. We both had PP as 1st choice and the unit as 2nd. I drew but he didn't. Apparently a lot more people picked that one as their 1st or 2nd choice this year.
I have always drawn the unit my cabin is in as a 2nd choice archery tag, not this year. Deer
Drew my Deer tag. Latest ever 3rd season for rifle. Super excited except for the major drought on the western slope. Pray for rain. Both my boys drew their 2nd choice archery deer tags.
And I am also the proud owner of a completely useless $50 Moose bonus point.
i must have checked the wrong box for preference point which i did not want but im being charge for on Moose. Can i get back my 50 and give up my point. i will call the office after the draw but maybe someone had same experience has me.
Elk hit here too, good luck everyone!
Credit card just got hit for elk. My wife drew her archery tag. It has not been updated on her account yet though. Check your credit cards, it just might be your lucky day!!
CC hit for archery elk!
Not going get too excited since it is Colorado. Waiting for definitive confirmation. Like tag in hand. Was only one NR tag available last year.
3 CC hits for elk. Myself and 2 sons.
25 points later, got my 201 tag finally. Gonna burn up all the vacation time come September.
No Colorado moose tag for me. No deer either:-(
Credit card got hit for elk!!!!
Pts went to 0, unit 61 here I come!!!!!
You guys who drew 61 and 201 tags, hope to see a write up on bowsite later this fall.
23 years of unsuccessful moose applications. Colorado DOW, you're clearly not here for the residents!
Just got hit for pronghorn
Elknailer, keep us posted please. All the way through the season. I have a pretty fair knowledge of the southern end if you need any help. I'm personally not really a fan of 61 but I have hunted it for/with others.
Heading to Colorado in October this year. Yes, I know it's a rifle tag. Got to try and break this 10yr tag soup trend I have going
Looking more official .
Finally After 29 applications!!!!!!!!!! ??
Successful Hunt Code Product: E00 - Elk Application Hunt Code: EE002O1A; List: A E/S LTD Archery 002
The only thing I can hunt in CO is squirrels. (I applied for elk and deer PP only)
Unit 76 archery elk.... no surprise with 21 points going into the draw!
Can you give me three extra days to process why i didnt get drawn??
Me too. Im ready to see statistics
No luck for me. Put in for a cow elk tag in a unit that had leftovers last year. 4 of us applied individually and we are 0 for 4.
Gees I drew a Desert Bighorn, Mt Goat, bull moose and Unit 2 elk tag this year. Not sure how I am going to get it all done.
CC just got hit. Unit 76 archery as NR with 15 pts, so little to no point creep from last year. Pleasantly surprised!
Unit 76 NR here, archery elk.
Yup burned my points. Points are 0. I'll be in CO for Elk in September.
Finally going to use my CO antelope points after 17 years, unit 81.
Wow, two 201 tags in the group! Congratulations! That is a long damn wait for sure!Hope to see a couple of giant bulls hit the ground!
I got my tag! I will be hunting with Forest in September!
Headed to Colorado in September when is 2021 recap out?
2021 Recap is posted now https://cpw.state.co.us/Documents/Hunting/BigGame/Statistics/Elk/2021ElkDrawRecap.pdf
Looking through the draw recaps. One thing that really stuck out to me was unit 65 mule deer. Last year the early rifle was 50% at 11 points. It didn't have much point creep but took 10 points or better for the last 4 years and was pretty consistent. This year it was 100% at 5 points. Apparently everyone with higher points went after the later season hunts this year. Can't say I blame people for skipping the early rifle hunt there. I've been in OTC units with less people around those dates.
What stood out to me from the recaps is that I heard of someone who drew with the same number of points I had this year so my first thought was, "Cool! I should be good for next year." However, when I looked into it the person who drew was 1 of 48 who drew at that level so even if just the other 47 put in next year, let alone anyone else like me who didn't apply this year because I knew I wasn't quite there puts in, or others who have even more points but are giving up the points game, I could be on the outside looking in once again. :(
Without even looking at the recaps again, I believe I know the species & unit you're talking about. I had the same # points as you, and the point creep in that unit was exactly why I burned them elsewhere last year. Probably will be 4 to 5 years before you're guaranteed to draw.
My favorite CO elk unit jumped two points this year. A few popular archery deer units appear to have gone the other direction.
First try. No tag. One preference point and counting. Good luck to all who were successful!
When will the tags show up in the mail
Unit 33 Archery elk tags are all upside down
How long for tags in the mail?
Successfully drew a couple preference points again this year. 2023 will likely be the year for me in Colorado.
Whew....drew my tag again 3 years later. I can't wait to not kill and elk again this year!
That’s the spirit Jordan!!!!
Applied with 25 deer points and still unsuccessful
