Video: Plan Your Colorado Big-Game Hunt Using ‘Draw Recap Reports’


If you’re a big-game hunter, now’s the time to prepare for Colorado’s limited-license drawing. The application deadline for this year’s drawing is April 4.

Did you know that Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Draw Recap Reports provide a valuable resource to help you apply for a limited big-game license? The newly redesigned reports show how many licenses were available last year in all game management units (GMUs) throughout Colorado, how many hunters applied for those limited licenses, how many of those hunters were successful drawing and preference-point requirements.  Be sure to study these reports before submitting your 2017 big-game application. Knowledge is power!

The video below provides a brief summary of how to use CPW’s Draw Recap Reports:

  • In addition to the Draw Recap Reports supplied by CPW, I recommend using ( to plan your hunt. The site incorporates all the data found in the Draw Recap Reports plus maps, tips, and other data that allows you to compare hunts/units. Most people report that it is easier to use than the CPW reports. You can use the site absolutely free. However, there is a paid version for just $10/mo that allows you to view much more and data visualization for over ten years. — Full disclosure: I am the creator of HuntScore.
