Nice addition!

Sometimes it's those extra comforts that help you hunt longer.

Good luck this season!

If you have any questions about arrow weight and different set-ups listen to the Meateater podcast with Dr. Ed Ashby.  Dr. Ashby lays it all out for you.

Hi Bittski,

I also drew a unit 49 archery tag and will be getting to the unit a few days later. I will be hunting from the 13th to 23rd, and I wish you the best of luck during your hunt!


Same here! I checked my preference points, and my balance is now at zero; it was at 8pts. yesterday. Now the charge just came through for the archery tag!

Here's a link to Go Hunt's stress test video for frame packs. Full disclosure, I have the Tenzing TZ 6000 pack that they destroy in less then two minuets.

Hi Bowfishtank401,

Have you looked over the maps for OTC archery on DOW website? I'm sure you have, but just asking.

The website also has a helpful atlas tool for reviewing units after you narrow down your search. Below is a screen shot of the OTC archery units for 2020. All of the southern western corner of the state have gone to draw only.

Do you have any points built up? Or did you and your buddies apply for any limited draw units this year?

I haven't looked at the onX Off road site. Do you like it, MISurveyor?

I bought a used Cabela's Alaknak 9.5ft x 9.5ft wall tent with a vestibule last summer, and put a small Colorado barrel stove in it. It was awesome! Very comfortable for two or three guys with cots.

Welcome Trautman,

Piggy backing off of what wapiti_will said. I live is southern Michigan and I have traveled to Colorado half dozen times hunting in hunts 33, 24, 25, 26, and 65. The one thing I can't stress enough is, get your legs and lungs in shape! The second thing is to be ready to run into other hunters. Last time I hunted in unit 25, we were about 13 miles away from the trail head, and just about every day we bumped into someone or an outfitter. Myself and handful of buddies are going back this archery season. I love Colorado and can't wait to be back in the mountains chasing elk and mule deer.
