  • Hi Mr. Neal,
    I was just looking thru the pref point issue and was wondering why there is not a breakdown for moose, sheep and goats? It would at least be nice to know how many licenses were available for a particular unit, if not also the number of applicants? I know you have that info and am very curious as to why it is not made available. Or is there somewhere else I can obtain that info? I have lots of points for many species and moose and sheep are the highest on my wish list. Many thanks for a great magazine and lots of excellent information!

    • Charlie,

      Thanks for reading Colorado Outdoors and for your comments regarding our “Preference point” issue. Unfortunately, there is limited space in the print magazine and not enough pages to include information for all species. However, you can find the information that you need on Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s website: http://cpw.state.co.us/thingstodo/Pages/Statistics.aspx

      Also, if you have further questions about applying for a big-game license, feel free to call one of our Hunt Planners. They can assist you and are available at: 303-297-1192.

      Thanks, and good luck on your 2016 hunts.

      – Jerry
