    Are there CO antelope hunts you can draw without alot of points? I thought they were hard to draw so I have stayed out of CO antelope.

    In the eastern part of Co the antelope tags are pretty easy to draw, BUT everything is almost all private. The NW part of the state is where it takes lots of point. Lots of goats & public land.

    MM, what CC said is pretty much right on but there are places in the eastern part of the state to hunt that don't take a lot of points to draw. Not much, but they do exist...

I'm like a lot of others trying to burn the points I have in other states and dropping out of several due to the price increases and the horrendous draw odds. I'm not as trophy oriented as a lot of other guy's so it might be easier for me to get out of the points game... at least to some degree. I'll alway's apply for Wyoming Elk, Deer, & Antelope and everything in Colorado.
    Right on...couldn't have said it better myself.

    what about the southern and southwestern part of CO. Just finished watching "Antelope Safari III" and Guy draws 4 tags in a row down there. Are they hunting private ranches or public? My perception previously was that anywhere but eastern CO was a tough draw for speed goats but that DVD has me scratching my head.
