    You are correct about landowner vouchers, I just looked in the regs. Since I have never got a landowner voucher, I didn't know this. Thanks.

    Colorado preference point creep is out of control with no solution on the horizon. Before the 80 /20 split, they took away all the RFW properties for non-residents. Effectively, they have forced all high preference point holders into very few units, which has compounded the problem. There are some good OTC units in CO, but most of these don't have good road access. If you want to enjoy a quality hunt, there are lots of opportunities. If you only measure the quality of the hunt by antler size, it will take tons of money or tons of preference points.

    You bring up Ranching For Wildlife, which IMHO is a joke and a ripoff. Several years ago 3 of us here in Co hoarded our PPT's for 7 years and got a RFW Elk tag at a large ranch near Craig. The ranch also got us cow tags. Lots of country to hunt and there were only 10 elk hunters there along with about 25 deer hunters. What we should have known was how much hunting pressure was on the ranch before we got there. First 2 days we covered a lot of ground and saw NO elk and only a few deer. I finally shot a 5x5 bull and one of my friends got a cow. We only saw 4 elk during a week of hard hunting. We also got the only elk on the ranch. The deer hunter were about 50%. Went bach during December to try and fill the cows tags and saw nothing. The ranch and the outfitter was no help and the impression we got was we are only doing this so we can get our guided hunts all the tags we need with any season or draw restrictions. I will never waste any more PPTs on RFW tags.
