    What is the best use of 9 Colorado deer preference points?

    I am trying to decide how to use my Colorado deer preference points. Colorado outdoors preference points edition will be out soon and will give some more up to date info to help decide. Looking at 09 and 10 unit 55 3rd season looks like
    7 points. Unit 61 2nd requires 7, 3rd needs 8. Unit 66 2nd needs 7 3rd is 9 and unit 67 3rd is 7. I am thinking unit 67 3rd rifle might be a good choice for me.

    There is an early season nine day hunt in the north park that might be better yet for me, though there are not a lot of deer there and they are below objective. I will be 70 by the start of the season so I won't be climbing the tough mountians, however I can make a pretty long shot and that helps. Btw I have been trying to use these points but if a unit required 8 points with my information by the time I apply it requires 9, that just an example.
    I would like to see how some of you with knowledge of these units would choose.

    No matter what unit you want to hunt, the 4th season is the one I'd hold out for. It is the one nearest to the rut and usually the bigger bucks are looking for the does. The deer tend to be more concentrated and usually there are less hunters because DOW issues fewer tags for that season.

    Keep in mind some units don't have a 4th season though...

    i think the dest thing you can do is give them to me
    with your age being a factor 10 is a easy hunt a lot of glassing a couple hundred feet if you were gonna climb anything
    mostley sage the pic of the deer in my avatar is from 10
    so if you get serious about that unit let me know

    I would have even more age before thay let me near unit ten with only 9 points. If these points would transfer I could sell them.
    I am looking aat 551 now.

    Just thinking, the best deer I have ever seen was in Jackson county. I had a gun and an elk tag.
    I understand there is an early 9 day hunt in unit 6?
