    CO DOW website?#$@*^!

    Could figuring out how to hunt in CO be any more confusing??? Don't get me wrong, the DOW website has loads of info for anyone who wants to hunt, but it seems to finger out in so many different directions, I keep getting lost. I thought PA was bad, but wow! It would be so much easier if you could just click on a WMU and it would give you all the info you need to know for that area...DONE. Instead of opening this page and that, and this map and that interacting map and pref point page and then 2 backflips and a summersalt over to another page? PA is the same way. You can't find a simple answer without devoting a whole weekend and a book report to it. Understand I'm not that tech savvy AND I've had a long day, but does anyone else get confused by this madness? Do any of you have a simpler way or a SOP to navigating through this? Just askin'.....OK, I'm done venting now!!!

    What questions are you seeking to answer? Season dates, public v. private land, tag quotas, draw odds, harvest stats I'm assuming? You can find season dates in the big game brochure, the interactive maps will show you public v. private. The recaps will show you tag quotas, and the draw odds can be figured by looking the recaps and draw summaries. The harvest stats can be found on the harvest stats page. The statistics link on the big game page can take you to most of this info. You have to look in various places unless you pay someone to do it for you . . .

    I kinda thought Colorado had one of the better DOW sites available..
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Lol! No doubt CC! I was mostly just humoring myself! I had too much coffee and my computer is slower than molasses in jan. The wife wanted a new one last yr but I felt we needed a new bow for me instead! She was obviously wrong!! (Hope she doesn't see this)
