Stevo you are reading it correctly but there were 4 applicants with 16 points not 6.
"Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
Here is one of the best articles out there on how to interpret Colorado's draw odds:
Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)
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?
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.
