I’m still in shock. It’s the same tag I drew 15 years ago. Long story, and one of the best hunts I’ve had, but didn’t result in a kill. At 60, this will likely be my last chance to kill the species I’ve dreamed about my whole life. I’ve got a lot of work to do to get in sheep shape.

Dammit. Another goat tag for her highness. And with last year’s tasty goat still prevalent in the freezer from my adventure in g5. This makes our ninth (6/3) since we started dating and she applied to get a proposal . Who knows what she’ll expect in return for letting me go with her on this trip…

My card got hit!!!!

For $100 per preference point.... I must have missed the fine print and the cost change a couple years ago, last time I applied it was $10 total... Lesson learned, never applying to CO for the big 3 again.

Congrats everyone!

Boggs it’s my understanding that if you don’t choose to receive an additional point if you don’t draw, you won’t get charged that $100.

Yooper, that is correct. I'm sitting at like 1 or 2 points for each of those species, so I'll never draw. I just forgot about the $100 charge per preference point.

Boggs,

Pay the preference point fees until you get to 3 and then just apply every year. "technically" you're not in the draw until you have 3 points. Plenty of people draw with 3 + 0 points and it doesn't cost you the NR preference point fees.

Hey guys,

The last time I drew a sheep tag, the CPW had previous year's kill locations recorded on maps. A current tag holder could research that info at the Denver CPW office. I was told that information is no longer available, and now they just disclose the drainage where the kill was reported, which is rather vague. Can any of you confirm this? I tried to call the CPW office today, but got put on an eternal hold pattern, so I hung up.

Thanks,

Matt

From: JohnMC
20-Apr-22
True only drainages. There is a map company that sells maps with kill locations. I forgot the company but I'd bet they can still print with the GPS kill sites up to the point they stopped that a few years ago. I don't remember the map company name though. Or post the unit someone likely has it that would share.

Grey Ghosts unit is super secret. I offered to help him with recent hunt intel on the “best unit” but he was still tight lipped.

Too bad I was going to put in next year for his unit and draw the tag with 100% odds.

Kidding aside, I hope he does well and no side by sides, scouters, spotters or hikers ruin it for him.

Badda Bing,,,drew S-6 second rifle Ram!. Killed a 13 YO ram in there in 2004 but much has changed since then they use to give out like 10 tags a years for ram and now its two. Word on the playground is lots less animals but maybe the lower tag numbers might give a ram to add some years. Not too far away from me for scouting and know the country pretty well. It kicked my ass 18 years ago!!! but excited. Thought my chances to hunt sheep again were over.

From: Bow Bullet
22-Apr-22
Congrats Adventurewriter! I drew the S06 archery tag last year. The guy who had your tag last year got a really nice 7/8 ram but I don't know what it scored. If I can help with any more recent info on the unit, shoot me a message.

Any news on this? Did GG hunt? Was his EBike a “game changer”?

From: Bow Bullet

Nick - GG didn't divulge the unit or the weapon but I suspect it's a rifle tag. Most of the rifle units open tomorrow and some not until October. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if he wants to fill us in.

From: Orion

Hahaha old grey ghost can sure dish it but he can't take it. Maybe less bowsite and more hunting would have helped notch one of those tags.

From: bigeasygator

25% success rate on average for the unit over the last few years. Hardly seems like a slam dunk to me.

Sounds like you had a great hunt and a memorable experience, GG.

From: JohnMC
06-Sep-22
I am not saying there is any shame in not filling any tag. I simply made a comment that 2nd seasons guys are doing very well. GG's thin skins took it as a jab at him I guess and choose to make a snarky comment towards me. So I pointed out a couple obvious issues with his dig at me. I root for anyone with a sheep tag especially a S32 tags. Hell I even hoped GG could do what it takes to get one and would have been excited if he had got one. I've give all the info I know about that unit to anyone with a tag that ask including a few folks this year. I'd would have shared everything I know with GG if he would have asked.

Maybe, John. In the context of the conversation it could certainly be construed differently and seems pretty insensitive at best. How'd the other first season guys do? Why only focus on a subset to show how successful people have been in the unit? Nonetheless, my response was more towards Orion who only seems to chime in to downplay and disparage the results of other hunters. Lots of hunters bashing hunters on here and hunters celebrating or laughing at unpunched tags.

From: bowhunt
06-Sep-22
I was hoping to see a hunt recap for this hunt. Any sheep hunting stories are always fun to read and usually full of great photos. They live in some cool looking country.

Glad you had fun on your hunt GG

This is probably the first time i've seen trash talking to a guy for not filling an archery sheep tag!

From: JohnMC
06-Sep-22
If you can see that as insensitive you have to be looking a reason to have your feeling hurts and also the mind set that everything is about you (I think many would agree that GG has that mind set). Like I said I love hearing of sheep killed in that unit. I only know of the results of 2 of the 5 first season guys, GG being one. Of those two neither punched their tag. I don't know the outcome of the others as I don't know who they are.

From: bigeasygator
06-Sep-22
So just for clarity, rather than talking about your other data point from the first season, you left that out and chose to focus on the three hunters you knew killed in the second season?

From: sticksender
06-Sep-22
Glad the secret is out! I consider that a fairly tough unit, esp for mature rams. Sheep are often visible close alongside US40 & I-70 but they're off limits. I assume Ghost was tough-in-cheek when he called it the "best unit". But having held two sheep tags (ewe) in there myself, I know it's pretty decent to hunt, esp if you like to see sheep daily. All archery sheep hunts are tough, especially where you're talking DIY solo hunts. Would love to see some pics and hear about any close encounters.

From: JohnMC
06-Sep-22
So just for clarity you like like to here about people that are not successful only versus successful hunts? I think it pretty darn cool at 60% of hunter during a season was successful. If you read more than that into my comment you are a snowflake. But maybe talking about hunting on bowsite should become like winning participation trophy in little league. Lets not focus on anyone success in case it hurts someone feeling.

Think I should go over to antelope meat pole and whine it is not fair people are sharing successes since I have spent 7 days in blind and not killed one? Of course not that would be ridiculous.

Last GG gets grief not because he didn't fill his tag because of his well earned rep of being arrogant over and over to folks on this site.

I like hearing the full context, John. And yes, I'm immediately skeptical of someone's motives if they go ahead and talk about how well people are doing immediately after someone says they ate tag soup in the same unit. It's either unintentionally insensitive or deliberately malicious.

Think I should go over to antelope meat pole and whine it is not fair people are sharing successes since I have spent 7 days in blind and not killed one?

No, but you seemed to whine when GG *merely* pointed out a lot of people killed antelope. Now it's obvious GG's comment was intentional and you obviously took it as such. But he essentially said the same exact thing you did.

Last GG gets grief not because he didn't fill his tag because of his well earned rep of being arrogant over and over to folks on this site.

And your true motivations come out.

From: JohnMC
06-Sep-22
Well at least we both agree on the truth GG being arrogant over and over on bowsite and deserving of the flack he gets.

From: JohnMC
06-Sep-22
Bigeasy you changed the last line of your last post LOL. You originally called it a absolutely truth I believe were your words

From: bigeasygator
06-Sep-22
And? I didn’t want any one else to misinterpret my point just like you did (what I said was “And the truth comes out” and it was in reference to your motivations, not that I felt what you posted was truth).

From: Bowbender
06-Sep-22
JHC…. Is THIS what the Bowsite has devolved into? Ridiculing someone for an unfilled sheep tag?

As far as GG being arrogant, I think you conflate arrogance with having one’s own opinion and not bowing to group think. Common problem on Bowsite.

From: Orion

Grey ghost posts a bunch of crap on people's threads all the time, he just told ermine his bow was out of tune and he is one of the most accomplished archers on this site. He also whined and cried and told me I wasn't a sportsmans for not giving him a spot to kill a bear. He gets everything he deserves. Karma is a b!tch. I see bigeasy is still up to his self-appointed fact checking.

I haven't seen him ridicule the efforts of a hunter not named Jimmy John or celebrate someone's lack of success on Bowsite. Matt has opinions on a lot of things, like guided hunts, hunting over bait, etc but I've never seen him turn those opinions into personal attacks...unlike you.

he just told ermine his bow was out of tune and he is one of the most accomplished archers on this site

Where? Without context this is a meaningless point.

He also whined and cried and told me I wasn't a sportsmans for not giving him a spot to kill a bear

Where? Without context this is a meaningless point. But so it's clear...you're claiming a guy who seemingly turned down multiple offers of help on his sheep tag whined and cried because you wouldn't help him kill a bear?? Something doesn't add up...

From: Cazador
11-Sep-22
Jesus, what happened to Bowsite and the sheep forum. There used to be some hellacious threads on here now it's guys rooting against guys with tags.

FYI.........I know some pretty legendary hunters who failed multiple times on sheep tags in S32, and other units in the state. Half you nannies couldn't cary their dirty underwear to the laundromat. Don't sit too high up in that saddle. The fall may hurt.
