    Hey Adam, could you tell me if I'm looking at it right? I'm looking at unit 44 deer 3rd rifle. From what I can tell, it looks like 4 NR tags were drawn. One drew with 20 points, 1 with 18 points, 1 with 17 and 1 out of 6 that applied with 16 points. Is this correct?

    Stevo you are reading it correctly but there were 4 applicants with 16 points not 6.

    Here is one of the best articles out there on how to interpret Colorado's draw odds:

    Here is the link to the preferred alternatives the CPW is looking at as far as changes to the season structure.

    After talking to a couple of folks on the commission they are looking at +3 if banking comes back as 96% of elk and deer are drawn currently 0-3 point units.. So banking is getting a big push and would change everything for 96% of the hunters to satisfy the 4% of trophy hunters out there.

    So with a +3 banking, guessing I should've applied this year with 16 points and had a 1:4 chance of a draw. So if 16 was the minimum this year and it +3 it'll take 19 to draw minimum next year?

    No that is not what i ment sorry if I was not clear.

    Say if banking comes back and you want to draw a unit tat takes 2 points. Then you would spend 2 + 3 or 5 total leaving you with 11.

    This is a good link - thanks for posting. This document certainly doesn't read like point banking is assured to be implemented. The lead 'alternative' is to keep current system in place.

    Trying to guess what it's gonna take to draw a tag in Colorado anymore is a crap shoot!! Both the deer and elk units I've been trying to draw jumped significantly!

    Anybody know where I can find elk density maps. I know how to find elk distribution with summer range, winter range, migration routes and winter concentrations. But no luck on density maps.
