    Limited entry hunts typically have very little pressure on the animals, at least hunting pressure. Sometimes lots of recreational traffic during the summer makes the animals feel comfortable around motor vehicles, kind of like Yellowstone or other national parks. Many Utah LE hunts have hundreds of ATV's driving tons of roads all day long. There is literally nowhere else for the elk to go. But these elk see the ATV's all summer long, and even during the rifle hunt only one in 20 ATV's carries a tag holder. So the mature elk stand there, and on occassion get shot when a tag holder comes by. It is a steep learning curve.

    One thing you all must remember, lots of states Game & Fish Depts (At least the ones I'm familiar with out west) don't put the restrictions on the travel of ATV's. On public land it's usually federal agencies that have the travel rules. Some areas of state land will also have restrictions. My local area NF (San Jaun NF) covers a bunch of hunting units, G & F only has rules about carry firearms on ATV's when hunting. But when it comes to enforcement of any of the rules for travel, firearms carry, etc, any law enforcement type can write a ticket.

    Colorado doesn't really have a "general season" for anything. For elk, there are 6 or 7 different seasons and your tag is only good in that particular season. Archery, Muzzleloader, First Rifle, Second Rifle, Third Rifle, Fourth Rifle, sometimes there may be a late season. The closest thing to a general season we have is second and third rifle, which is OTC in many units.

    Deer is the same way, with no OTC at all.
