Colorado (Demo) / Unit Analysis

Colorado is a state that most archery hunters should be applying in. Averaging around 120 total P&Y entries each year, no state puts more P&Y entries in the book annually. Colorado is a state whose game management program is focused mostly on hunter opportunity and it leads the way in elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep & mountain goat entries year in and year out. Despite catering heavily towards hunting opportunity, it turns out giant archery mule deer and bigger moose than any other state! It is also the only state that offers archery rocky mountain bighorn hunts and an archery mountain goat hunt, improving the odds of drawing one of these coveted tags as a bowhunter.

New in 2018, Colorado won’t require that applicants front the entire tag fee upfront to apply. Rather, they will charge $10 for a habitat stamp along with $3 for each species being applied for. This has drastically reduced the upfront cost to apply, making it a good idea for every hunter to be building points in Colorado!

*If you participate in the hunt drawing, you will be charged a $3 nonrefundable application fee for each species you apply for. You will not be charged a permit fee unless you draw a permit.

To apply for an elk permit or preference point in Colorado, applicants must front the $3 application fee along with a $10 habitat stamp which is nonrefundable (valid for all species being applied for). If applying for a point only, enter E-P-999-99-P as your first-choice hunt code on your application. You can gain a preference point as a first choice on your application to use another year. You can use your second through fourth choices on the same application to apply for a license. You will be charged the license price ONLY if you draw a license. The $40 preference point fee will still be charged if you are unsuccessful in the draw.

Colorado runs a preference point system for its elk applicants, awarding priority to those with the most points. Elk nonresident allocations are determined by the average number of preference points a Colorado resident needed to draw a specific license during a 3-year period that ended with the 2009 drawing. (Units with low numbers of available licenses may not have any remaining for nonresidents after resident licenses are drawn.) For elk hunt codes that required six or more points for a Colorado resident to draw, up to 20 percent may go to nonresidents. These hunts are designated in unit tables by a “+ ” under the “SEX” column of the 2018 Colorado Big Game regulations. For hunt codes that required fewer than six points for a Colorado resident to draw an elk license, up to 35 percent may go to nonresidents.

All applicants’ first choices are considered before moving on to the second phase of the draw making the more popular permits impossible to draw with a second choice. We list your true odds of drawing a permit with the minimum number of points required for each hunt as a nonresident. All available nonresident archery bull or either sex hunts are listed in the table below.

To apply for a rocky mountain bighorn sheep permit or preference point in Colorado, applicants must front the $3 application fee along with a $10 habitat stamp which is nonrefundable (valid for all species being applied for). If applying for a point only, enter S-P-999-99-P as your first-choice hunt code on your application. You can gain a preference point as a first choice on your application to use another year. You will be charged the license price ONLY if you draw a license. There is no preference point fee for bighorn sheep.

Colorado runs both a preference and weighted preference point system for its rocky mountain bighorn sheep applicants. The maximum points you can accumulate for rocky mountain bighorn sheep are three. If you have three points for bighorn sheep and you fail to draw a first-choice license, you receive a weighted preference point. Weighted preference increases your probability of drawing. It is calculated by converting your application number into a different, random application number, then dividing that new application number by the amount of weighted points you have, plus one. This generates another new application number. Applications are sorted by this new number from lowest to highest and low numbers for each hunt code are awarded licenses. This essentially becomes a bonus point system and does not guarantee you will be drawn with max points as a true preference point system would. Colorado’s nonresident bighorn sheep quotas are established and guaranteed to nonresident applicants for every hunt available each season.

All applicants’ first choices are considered before moving on to the second phase of the draw making the more popular permits impossible to draw with a second choice. We list your true odds of drawing a license based on the nonresident application weighted point totals of last year’s drawings. All available nonresident archery ram hunts are listed in the table below. Remember, you may only apply for rocky mountain bighorn OR desert bighorn each year!
