Select then start

From: BOWUNTR

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

From: Treeline
30-Apr-19
Log into your account and hit “Control F1” for sheep and “Control F2” for goat. Should pop right up Ed...

30-Apr-19
Ed, that's a Nintendo reference. You just dated yourself.

From: Treeline

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!

This thread sucks

From: Stoneman
01-May-19
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.

01-May-19
The only backdoor I know of anymore is some credit cards will show a pending charge for successful applicants before the results are posted.

From: Ucsdryder
01-May-19
My points disappeared. Does that mean I drew?

01-May-19
No everyone's disappear while the draw is taking place, but it means they are working on drawing my name!

From: Treeline
01-May-19
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....

From: JohnMC
01-May-19
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!!

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
Can someone explain the process...…..in ENGLISH, please?

From: BOWUNTR
01-May-19
Never had Nintendo... went over my head. Ya got me... Ed F

From: Ucsdryder
01-May-19
When I go into my points it shows 0 and says successful. Maybe a glitch?

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
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?

From: Treeline
01-May-19
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...

From: Treeline
01-May-19
The “back door” for early drawing notifications was slammed last year with the new system.

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
So how is it then that people on this thread are claiming they are able to see their sheep draw results for 2019?

From: Nick Muche
01-May-19
Nva is a slow learner :)

From: JohnMC
01-May-19
You had to pay the extra fee to see results early

From: BOWUNTR
01-May-19
You'd think he would have a super special access to the back door... Ed F

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
Nva never played a Nintendo game in his life and is absolutely hopeless when it comes to technology.

From: JohnMC
01-May-19
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!

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
Would someone PLEASE tell me how to see the sheep draw results!!!!!!!!!!

From: Treeline
01-May-19
Too bad “Grasshopper” is already in use...

From: NvaGvUp
01-May-19
OK,

Ya'll are just playing with each other and no one has actually seen the results.

Right?

From: BOWUNTR
01-May-19
You have to hit the start button ... lower left corner. Took me a while to find it. Ed F

From: JohnMC
01-May-19
Bohuntr that is only if you are using a Mac computer all others it is the select button in top right.

01-May-19
This was like a last day April Fools...Pretty good to say the least!

From: Jaquomo
01-May-19
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...

From: otcWill
01-May-19
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 :)

From: Treeline
01-May-19
If you follow the above instructions precisely, it will send the video clips (with sound on) to the rest of us :-)

From: Ucsdryder
01-May-19
Man, every once in a while I come on here and find a thread that just makes my day! Thanks NVG!

From: sticksender
01-May-19
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 ;-)

From: Dirk Diggler
01-May-19
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.

From: huntperch

I don't even put in for goat or sheep but really enjoyed reading the thread. Great job on explaining the backdoor guys!

01-May-19
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....

From: Fauntleroy
01-May-19
I got in through the side door. Nobody on here drew.

From: Vids

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

From: Sandbrew
03-May-19
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.

Sandbrew

From: KHunter
03-May-19
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.....

From: samman
03-May-19
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.

From: Treeline
03-May-19
Hopefully that front door will swing wide open today and the winners will be happy, happy, happy:-)

From: KHunter
03-May-19
see on another site a guy has a $2,211.75 pending charge...

From: 2xLung
03-May-19
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!!!

From: Ucsdryder
03-May-19
Do they do sheep and goat before the other big game animals?

From: KHunter
03-May-19
yes.

From: yooper89
03-May-19
Got one $50 charge to my card today. Not sure which specie but I don't anticipate drawing any of the 3.

From: Fauntleroy
03-May-19
Wreak! Couple of $50 charges. Good luck!

No Charge on mine yet.

From: Red Sparky

So what is this Nintendo thing you all are talking about? Is it anything like an Atari?

From: Vids
03-May-19
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.

From: KHunter
03-May-19
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!

From: JohnMC
03-May-19
I just called bank and have a $50 and $301 charge I think I drew something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: KHunter
03-May-19
we both drew something. congrats!

From: Redman
03-May-19
What’s a pending charge from RAOCOPARKS AND WILDLIFE mean on you cc?

From: JohnMC
03-May-19
If this is wrong I am going to be really disappointed...

From: CCOVEY
03-May-19
PP for me. Dang!

From: kscowboy
03-May-19
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!

From: KHunter
03-May-19
RedmN if it matches pref point fee no draw. If it matches tag fee you drew sheep or goat.

From: Dirk Diggler
03-May-19
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.

From: JohnMC
03-May-19
Dirk nothing show on my account on CPW under orders when did that show up? I am wearing out the keys on my computer!!

From: Dirk Diggler
03-May-19
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?

From: Dirk Diggler

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.

From: Treeline
03-May-19
Still shows $7 for goat but looks like I got the $57 kiss of death for sheep....

From: Treeline
03-May-19
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....
