    Everybody says the 2nd is better if the weather is cool, but the 2nd season has higher hunter success over 3rd season as far as bulls anyway. What's the reason for that? Pressure? In your opinion what is the better season 2nd or 3rd? Obviously muzzleloader and 1st rifle are better but of the 2 OTC seasons which is better?

    Don't know where you got this info, but I'm guessing it came from Colo Parks & Wildlife website. As I said in another post, these numbers from them are only a guess. There is no mandatory reporting from hunters, they only do a survey that is a sampling. (I believe it is still done by an outside contractor). In the 17 or so years I have hunted Colorado, I have been contacted 5 or 6 times over the phone. Other states have a mandatory turn in of all big game tags after the season, that way they can tell who got what.

    Could just be a numbers game from legal bulls getting shot pre-3rd. Plus the remaining ones have gotten pressure & may have headed to private land, or weather related issues. Saw a lot of folks packing up and leaving with a cpl days left during 3rd last year when that big snow storm blew in.

    Then in units with horrible sex ratios you can get into that 2nd cycle on the cows that cycled late the first go-around.
