    > 16 NR Colorado Deer & Elk Points..

    Sharing for no particular reason. Anyone with 16 or greater Deer and Elk NR preference points in Colorado may be intersted in the attached. I started tracking the run-down about 5 years ago. Current thru the 2014 draw and data taken from Colorado Game & Fish website.

    Can't for the life of me understand why someone would have as many as 26 for elk and 24 for deer as NO units in the state require that many.

    I wonder what the guy with 26 points is waiting for?
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I wondered about this a couple of years ago. I think it is a father waiting for his son to get enough points, or a non hunting spouse who puts in for the tag by a hunting spouse, or someone who is putting in for a deceased relative??? It is strange as to why it happens.

    I think far too many hunters equate high demand units (lots of PP's needed) with high probability of trophy critters. Most will be disappointed when they finally draw. JMO.

    I met the guy with max deer points. He is a really good guy and know's his stuff. He buys 3rd season deer tags in the Gunnison Valley every year. He is waiting to burn the points on a 4th season tag in that area once the herd bounces back.

    If you look at the draw summaries this happens more than most people realize. Last year a guy burned 17 points on a 4th season bull tag in GMU 4, 0 points was 100% draw. Another burned 16 in gmu 11, again 100% at 0 points. Another burned 18 on an either sex 4th season with 100% at 0 points. And the bonehead of the year award goes to the guy who burned 22 points on a 1st season bull hunt in gmu 19 that was 100% draw at 0 points! I don't know if they made mistakes and just turned the tags back in and got their points restored. If they didn't they are truly idiots.
