Colorado's 2020-2026 new hunting season dates... how will they impact you? - posted 1 week ago

Lol, well play mathew a.

You (and most of the guys on this thread) would probably hate my spots, there are other trucks at the trailheads, other hunters in the field, hunting with other types of weapons, no game (because CPW let us kill them all) and soon to be....wolves.

My spots are definitely not for you. ; )

Here's an option that's always produced when I need it most:

CPW manages tag allocations based on harvest history predictions by weapon per season. The market, aka Us, determines what those tags are worth. CPW doesn't manage for "premier tags" the manage populations and opportunity.

They give us an opportunity (albeit limited) to kill mule deer above treeling with a rifle in early September. It's limited because the success rates are higher. The market then determines the value of those scarce tags in terms of preference points. This value is determined inclusive or exclusive of having archery and muzzleloader hunters around.

It's economics: supply, demand, perceived value and return on investment.

There's no great scheme at CPW to gouge hunters and eradicate herds. They're trying to make sure there's plenty of opportunities (read: revenue) while maintaining herd health so that there will continue to be plenty of opportunities (read: revenue) in perpetuity.

Are you all having that hard a time killing animals?!

I'm a fan. If you haven't read the commission's report outlining their objectives and potential solutions that lead to these decisions, you should.

Cpw prints money for the state by managing its herds. They're not idiots, they know exactly what they're doing.
