For now anyways... Fiance got a rockin' job up there. Will probably move back to Texas eventually, hard to leave the motherland for good.

Any tips for CO in general? Moving to North Front Range (FT Colloins/Loveland). Would love any suggestions on where to live or how to hunt up there. I am really hoping to connect with some other hunters and gun enthusiasts to figure things out and have some buddies to hunt with. The waterfowl game looks similar to out here in Lubbock, but man the whole Elk, Deer, and Turkey stuff seems like a whole different animal.

My precision hog slayer, to keep things entertaining.

Ft Collins is a nice town, my uncle lived there for about 10 years. We lived over near Montrose over on the Western slope for a few years.. If you like the outdoors things like hiking, camping, skiing, snow machine trail rides, you will have plenty to do.

Holidays will be more like a Rockwell painting, compared to what you're use to here.

Hunting will be allot different, much less time to "get it done", but it isn't too complicated, The 2015 DOW brochure is out now, so get one and read through it. There is so much public land it will boggle your mind, will also make finding a "honey hole", an adventure.

It is a beautiful state if you can get away from the front range big cities.

Stay out of the liberal politics and you will really like it there. Check out the white water river rafting out of Fort Collins. up

Not a ton of public land for waterfowl, but tons for big game. My suggestion is buy a goose trailer and start knocking on doors next season. No better way to spend your time than chasing geese on the front range.

Start putting in for the draw this year. You will have to go Non-Res this year, but in future years you should be able to apply as Resident which will greatly improve your chances for a quality Elk or Mule Deer unit.

Even if you don't get drawn, CO has millions of acres of public land for Elk hunting. Research an area, scout the crap out of it before the season, go kill a good bull.

Plenty of public land loaded with elk and mulies, you will have to hike to make kills but it's free so enjoy!
