I am 90% sure that I will attempt to relocate this guy from last year.   I think heís young and the kind of deer that could blow up.  However, I do have the points to get into a decent 2nd or 3rd season hunt.  Hmmmm?

Going to try and cash in 11 points on a 3rd season hunt. Hope it works out.
That buck looks awesome.

CO is a tough call this year. Lots of big deer could die on 2nd season this year if the weather hits. Especially with the later muzz dates some deer might slip through the cracks in the early season. Of course this is all speculation  :chuckle: how many points are you sitting on? I'm not sure points even equate to better quality these days, if you have a line on a buck with that potential it'd be hard not to go look for him! I say flip a coin  :chuckle: I had every intention of doing a 2nd season this year but that went down the drain with the whole preggo wife thing

You are spot on regarding 2nd season this year in some of the superior genetic areas!  Could be one for the ages!

It is going to be very interesting to see how the draw goes...point leap (not creep) might be the more appropriate terminology!

Have 7 pts this year and I do think many units I could normally draw I wonít be able to this year. Will wait to cash them in in a year or two and hunt WY this year instead with 7 pts and hopefully elk and antelope as well.

Iím in with 9 this year. With point who knows what, nothing is remotely guaranteed but you gotta play to win. Good luck to you all

I got 1 point Iím hoping to draw a second rifle hunt, but who knows how the draw will creep. Everyone  is assuming major point creep this year, but I donít  think it wonít be as bad on 2nd rifle hunts. I keep looking at muzzy hunts thinking they will be overlooked  :dunno:. All the options in Colorado always make for an exciting application to submit!

Wow... that's a great buck!  I burned my points   a couple of years ago and will probably regret it, but I'll just collect points for another year and am going to skip Colorado this year... these date changes are going to mix things up.

I have 14 points. I wish I had 7, or....24. Theres realistically only a couple of third season hunts I could possibly draw without "wasting" a load of points.
