    The draw in for Unit 67 3rd season was as follows:

    2010: 8.5% with 6 points
    2011: 16.7% with 7 points
    2012: 83.3% with 9 points
    2013: 50% with 11 points
    I read through the statistics page on cdow Web site again and I'm still coming up with 12 points to draw last year? Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Do you know exactly how many tags were given to non residents? I thought it was 9

    I'm pulling the stats off of Hunter's Trailhead. They are claiming 11 tags went to non-residents in 2013.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1996 YT), Fannin (1997 YT), Bighorn (1998 CO Unit S-26), Stone (1995 BC), Desert (2001 NV Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 WY Unit 5)

    It looks like you can draw with 11. 12 would have guaranteed the tag.

    66 is coming back pretty good too although some of it can be contributed to migrating deer off 67. The East side of 67 still isn't doing that well but that side got hammered a lot harder.

    Pack mule I've heard the same thing. So much so that as a resident in CO I'm evaluating putting in for unit 67 3rd season this year. Not familiar with the unit and it would be my first dive in for a trophy muley. Point creep is making it a hard choice though as I know the points I have saved will be worth more than points gathered later down the road if I spend em this year.

    Is scouting a challenge in this unit with the migratory patterns or does a first time chaser DIY public guy have a good shot at a 180+? Appreciate any insights.

    There's a decent shot at it bc it's a premium tag. Scouting helps out a lot and it can be done without ever leaving a rd if it's done during the 2nd/3rd season split. I wouldn't put much faith in late summer scouting.

    Good advice packmule. I saw some deer in the sage recently, well November, none were shooters. I am confident I can find a 190 plus in unit 67. I have scouted it 4 times and hunted it once. I sure left some good ones there. This should be an easy hunt so don't make it unnecessarily hard.

    It got unreal after that snow storm came in the last cpl days of the season.

    Was that 200 the "reliable hunter" informed you of a big, wide 4pt (guess 5pt if you count brow tines) typical?

    Do you think 67 is a better choice than 66? 66 seems a little harder to draw, but they are right next to each other.

    From what I've heard 66 is a little better, more public land in 66 also. I personally would put in for 66 if I had the points.
