The reason there is a chance to draw those units with zero points is because very few hunters would even consider any of those units. However, there used to be a small herd south of Hayden in unit 13 but mostly on private land.

Good luck.  Most of the guaranteed draw units are in northern Wyoming, but doe tags are relatively cheap and if you do your research for areas with public opportunities versus tag availability, it can be done in a weekend trip.

Yes definitely eat! It's been chewy, but cut it then, pound it, flour, egg, Italian bread crumbs and fry for a great schnitzel! Bagged my first one this year, what a hoot.

I was choosing 13,15 and 18 based on the chance to maybe draw the tag with zero preference points, that there were herds located there based on the colorado atlas and that there was some public land to hunt on. There are units in eastern colorado but that is almost all entirely private land.

I was choosing Colorado based on that I am a resident of CO. I will not have the time to do a long antelope hunt this year, so I am looking for an in state tag that will give me a learning lesson on antelope hunting and also allow me to give it a good solid weekend, as that is all I can afford this year.

I do like wyoming and am looking more into it, but I am not sure I can make it happen this year.

Thanks for the help

I should go back and state that a lot of what determines me using my bike or not is if others with me have a bike. When I'm with others that have bikes, we use them. I hunt public land 95% of the time.

Yes I am a nonresident.  Had 3 points, drew a 6a tag in 2018 with my son. Wanted to have a hunt with him before he got out of highschool.
Put in this year as a party with my son again and got incredibly lucky to draw this tag!  He is incredibly lucky, will have his second Arizona elk tag and he is only 18!

My buddy has done extensive research on e-bikes [he uses one on closed roads all the time]

"As far as riding them on USFS closed roads and other places open to regular bicycles, the USFS has a policy declaring them as "motorized vehicles", which is in direct conflict with Federal Law H.R. 727 which specifically states that they are NOT "motorized vehicles".

CO passed a state law declaring e-bikes are NOT considered motorized vehicles, as well. HB17-1151.

I wouldnt worry about it. But I know many would.

This is the kind of stupidity that permeates too many topics on the Internet.

1.  H.R. 727 is NOT a Federal Law.  H.R. indicates a resolution put forward by the House of Representatives, it is NOT law.  H.R. 727 was a proposed change to the Federal Register (THE LAW), in 2002 that would update the Consumer Product Safety Act.  When the language of H.R. 727 was passed and added to THE LAW, it had nothing to with the use of Ebikes, it simply allowed the Federal Government to control the safety features of Ebikes.  It applies to consumer safety and has nothing what so ever to do with the rules and regulations of USING an Ebike on public or private lands.

2.  Telling people that you wouldn't worry about it is irresponsible and promotes violating laws that can cause financial liability that most would find pretty damaging.  Personally, I'd laugh if I found out that you were being sued for damages after taking your advice.
Results are up. Drew early archery unit27!

By your handle I assume you drew a nonresident tag. How many years did it take? how many points did you have?

I'm baffled as to why you thing 13,15,and 18 might be good. I would not consider any of those three for an antelope hunt. Wyoming would be a much better choice than Colorado. Wyo67 had some good advice.
