    Good thing I didn't dump all my points on an OTC tag this year.

    » Pronghorn
    More list b licenses avaIlable — Many
    pronghorn licenses traditionally classified as List
    A licenses have now been classified as List B.
    Hunters may purchase up to two List B licenses
    during the year, which increases your opportunity
    to harvest an animal.
    Check hunt codes carefully in the brochure tables
    starting on page 47 to see if your license is now
    considered a List B tag.
    neW hunTs — New private-land-only pronghorn
    hunts have been established in GMUs 9, 88 and
    191. Th ese hunts run from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31. As
    always with private-land tags, it is advised to get
    permission from landowners before applying for
    the license.
    Closed hunts — All hunts in GMUs 41, 62 and
    411 have been closed to manage game populations
    The closure is for pronghorn antelope only.
    To enter the woods in pursuit of a wild animal, brings my soul alive, It renews the energy within and brings a peace to my life.
    It puts things in perspective, it gives value to life, and perseverance through difficulties.
    It gives me an understanding of what makes me tick!

    Friend of mine had the tag two years ago and let the two bucks he had in range go. Said it didn't feel right to take either of the possible last breeding stock. Should have been done about 5 years ago.
    The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

    Wouldn't be suprised to see the whole western slope shut down in years to come. Numbers are way down in NW Colorado.

    Just the over hunting of the units. I know they only offer 2 licenses for 41, 441, and 62, but I drove by the herd the other day and there is only about 10-15 left when the population was 60 4-5 years.
