Back door CO Sheep and Goat open
Just enter the code up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A on their website.
You have to hit start at the end...
Help me out here... please explain the process. I checked my orders, apps, points and do not see a select or start tab. Ed F
Log into your account and hit “Control F1” for sheep and “Control F2” for goat. Should pop right up Ed...
Ed, that's a Nintendo reference. You just dated yourself.
That's not cool... my future depends on this... Ed F
It is still April:-)
Should be up by the end of the week.
Then have to wait for UT, MT, NV, and that horribly late draw system in AZ!
Tell me which thread associated with the Co forum doesn't suck... possible reduced archery opportunities (BGSS etc), introduction of wolves (Initiative 79), letter to the governor... pick one.
However, everyone should know the days of the 'backdoor' are long gone. Just a few more days gentlemen.
The only backdoor I know of anymore is some credit cards will show a pending charge for successful applicants before the results are posted.
My points disappeared. Does that mean I drew?
No everyone's disappear while the draw is taking place, but it means they are working on drawing my name!
Tic-toc, tic-toc, ...
Is that the clock or Chinese water torture?
Still hard to believe these drawings take so much time! Hell, they could probably go down to Walmart and get a computer with the capacity to run every species in about 5 minutes....
I figured most of us grew up in the age of the Nintendo and would pick up on that fairly quickly. The backdoor was fun when it worked. Now the CPW does not use the back door instead Colorado's new governor does!!
Can someone explain the process...…..in ENGLISH, please?
Never had Nintendo... went over my head. Ya got me... Ed F
When I go into my points it shows 0 and says successful. Maybe a glitch?
I was able to log in and see my apps and my points.
Everything is current through the day I submitted my 2019 apps and all my points show.
What I don't get is how to use the 'backdoor' thing. Where and when do you do the Ctrl F1 thing?
Not sure a detailed description of our new “back door man” governor is appropriate for this family friendly website, Kyle!
Most sportsmen in Colorado are expecting to be back doored by him and the folks that got him elected. Guess they will fix “point creep” when we no longer have any big game to hunt...
The “back door” for early drawing notifications was slammed last year with the new system.
So how is it then that people on this thread are claiming they are able to see their sheep draw results for 2019?
You had to pay the extra fee to see results early
You'd think he would have a super special access to the back door... Ed F
Nva never played a Nintendo game in his life and is absolutely hopeless when it comes to technology.
Can't be to bad a technology you managed to photoshop yourself into pictures with some nice animals under your profile ;)
Just kidding some nice looking things you have killed!
Would someone PLEASE tell me how to see the sheep draw results!!!!!!!!!!
Too bad “Grasshopper” is already in use...
Ya'll are just playing with each other and no one has actually seen the results.
You have to hit the start button ... lower left corner. Took me a while to find it. Ed F
Bohuntr that is only if you are using a Mac computer all others it is the select button in top right.
This was like a last day April Fools...Pretty good to say the least!
When I applied I didn't check the "Early results notification" option at the bottom of the application, so mine won't be available through the back door anyway...
Chuckling at this one :)
In all seriousness though, I drew a goat tag. How do I know? I can see the future. You missed Nva :)
If you follow the above instructions precisely, it will send the video clips (with sound on) to the rest of us :-)
Man, every once in a while I come on here and find a thread that just makes my day! Thanks NVG!
As I recall about the only hint of a backdoor under the new system last year, was the Draw Recaps being posted one day or so before the results came up. Since the Draw Recaps contain the point status of winning & losing applicants, you get an idea of your chances. Of course it's possible that my mentioning this here on bowsite, which is read by various CPW employees, might insure they no longer do that ;-)
Your chain has been thoroughly yanked NvaGvUp! Happens to the best of us.
Sticksender is right as usual. There was a glitch in the matrix last year and the drawing recaps for sheep and mt goat was visible for a short time. My guess is the draws are complete for sheep and mt goat. Since the recaps last year have the dates of 5/1 and 5/2 listed on the top. I thinking they are going to update the points data base and then release results.
I can never understand why people are in such a rush to get disappointed ;)
Until it happens, we can still have hope Ted...
I don't even put in for goat or sheep but really enjoyed reading the thread. Great job on explaining the backdoor guys!
Tavis I have taught myself just to TRY and forget about it and wait... drew a great pronghorn tag in NM this year if I did'nt already tell you....
I got in through the side door. Nobody on here drew.
I have a charge to my bank account for a preference point, so something has happened. No update in my portal yet though.
Well today’s the day good luck y’all I’m still a year from even having my name in the hat
I've got a $50 pending charge from CPW as well. Has to be be either a sheep mt goat point for me. Dang it. I'm assuming for sheep at this point.
i have two $50 charges. Double dang it. Guess I will cry into some free Blue Moon beer tonight at RMBS Life member event to chase the blues away.....
I opted out of paying for a point, so can't tell that way. My preference points still show 3 with 18 weighted and nothing on the "awarded" page, so I'm guessing skunked yet again. I figure if 18 weighted hasn't helped, $50 for 19 weighted wasn't going to up my odds enough to bother with.
Hopefully that front door will swing wide open today and the winners will be happy, happy, happy:-)
see on another site a guy has a $2,211.75 pending charge...
Credit card hit! One for $301.75 and one for $50. I got a tag for one and a point for the other...now is my tag for sheep or goat!?!?!!! Woohoooo!!!
Do they do sheep and goat before the other big game animals?
Got one $50 charge to my card today. Not sure which specie but I don't anticipate drawing any of the 3.
Wreak! Couple of $50 charges. Good luck!
So what is this Nintendo thing you all are talking about? Is it anything like an Atari?
Just got my second $50 charge to my bank account. Dang it, I was holding out hope for a minute there...
Red Sparky - Nintendo is a gaming console, like an Atari is.
yahoo. wife drew desert or I drew a goat or sheep! I realize what the odds are for which tag it is but we happy to see any of them!
I just called bank and have a $50 and $301 charge I think I drew something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we both drew something. congrats!
What’s a pending charge from RAOCOPARKS AND WILDLIFE mean on you cc?
If this is wrong I am going to be really disappointed...
JohnMC, congrats! I think you're in the money.
Saw the PP charge for goat and the application fee for desert on the department website, so I'm out. Hopefully my father is able to pull a sheep tag after having 1 shy of max points. I'm waiting on him to call me back to login for him.
Good luck, everyone!
RedmN if it matches pref point fee no draw. If it matches tag fee you drew sheep or goat.
If you go into your CP&W account and look under orders you will see a tag fee or pp fee has been added to your app fee.
Dirk nothing show on my account on CPW under orders when did that show up? I am wearing out the keys on my computer!!
John go into your account and click on "orders". Look at your sheep and goat order for a $ amount. Give me a sec and I'll post a screenshot.
How do you interpret this? sheep price is $7 goat price is $57 any thoughts on which one I drew?
No goat for you, sheep is pending for you. If you drew it would be $307 odd dollars. $57 on both mine says 0-2 for me.
Still shows $7 for goat but looks like I got the $57 kiss of death for sheep....
Looked up the credit card and have one charge for $301.75 and another for $50.00.
Appears I may be spending a little time up in the cliffs above treeline....
congrats Treeline on the tag, no soup for me!
Congrats treeline! May need to change yer handle to "above treeline" for this fall!
Will have to spend some time lining out a selfbow for this one... Should be fun!
When’s the moose draw? Same as the elk? Can’t remember
If they are going to say May 3rd the results should be posted at 12:01 AM :) This I think I drew buy don't know for sure is killing me!!
Naw. Moose will be out next week.
I have 3 50$ dollar hits?????
Either hitting moose which I didn’t think they would be or you put somebody else in on your credit card?
Looks like the front door is swinging open!
Goin’ on a goat hunt :-)
Let the confirmed disappointments begin...
Nice John!!!! Two very lucky Bowsiters!
Just got an email from the cow telling me I didn’t draw. Good to c my $100 is being put to good use??
I finally drew a sheep tag in Colorado! Unit S20 for me.
Congrats boys! Nothing for me but two good friends drew. I'm happy to have the chance to tag along
I just confirmed I drew both my goat and sheep tags the same year after 15 years of applying. Thrilled and a bit overwhelmed.
JohnMC must have had good luck by starting this thread! Looks like there will be some good hunts
2x- I cant imagine that. Are they overlapping units?
LOL Wild will have to remember to do it again next year for goat or moose. No I am hoping moose waits a year.
Different units and a week between the seasons. Wondering if I can take a sabbatical at work....

Focus on the sheep first, then the goat.
Grats to you guys that drew.
I'm 0-7 on LE tags so far this year...
I don't even bother to look anymore if it's a weighted point hunt.
Jaq, there’s a thread started for you. grin
Treeline you drew my tag. I'll be up there for 1st rifle elk!
Congrats to all you guys. Fun! I can only dream about it.
Happy to read so many Happy bowsiters drawing!
Good luck, Robb
Congrats to all who drew tags. Please post up your scouting and hunting adventures!
