    Nonresident tag percentage.

    Does anyone know the percentage of tags that are allocated to nonresidents for elk in draw hunts?
    In some states if that percentage equals 20 tags or less and nonresidents apply as a party of 2 or more they will never get drawn. I found this out the hard way in Oregon after applying with a party for several years thinking we had enough points but did not draw a tag. I read this in the Oregon percentage tags book and changed our application this year to individual and we all got drawn. Is Colorado the same way?

    I asked the DOW that question once, and they told me it's around 30-40% for non residents, but it depends on the unit too. Some units are more generous than others.

    From Page 3 of the Big Game Brochure, lower right corner:

    License Allocations:
    Nonresident allocations are determined
    by the average number of preference
    points a Colorado resident needed
    to draw a specific license during a
    3-year period that ended with the 2009
    drawing. (Units with low numbers of
    available licenses may not have any remaining
    for nonresidents after resident
    licenses are drawn.)
    1. For hunt codes that required six or
    more points for a Colorado resident
    to draw an elk or deer license, up to
    20 percent may go to nonresidents.
    These hunts are shown in unit tables
    by a “+ ” under the “SEX” column of
    the hunt tables.
    2. For hunt codes that required fewer
    than six points for a Colorado resident
    to draw an elk or deer license, up
    to 35 percent may go to nonresidents.
    3. Nonresident allocations may increase
    if licenses remain after drawing all
    fi rst-choice hunt codes for Colorado
    4. License allocations do not apply to
    private-land-only and Ranching For
    Wildlife licenses.
    5. In a group of applications made up of
    both residents and nonresidents, all
    nonresidents in the group will count
    against the nonresident allocation.

    I think Colorado has the most generous set asides of big game tags as almost any state. Resident are sometime not to happy as 20% in the premium areas that are requiring 15 to 20 points is a bit tought to swallow.
