Got a email today that I wasnít expecting. It seems Colorado fish and game felt the need to not issue me a bighorn tag for 2018. Never mind the fact that I didnít have any preference points....I was banking on this. Really beside myself at the moment


In time I will get over it and move on....I appreciate yallss support

I'll participate in your support group. My son and I are struggling with the news as well. Hard to fathom quite honestly.

After hearing your news I called 911 and got air lifted to a shrink in Center Point for help.

I understand. For several years, now, TPWD was supposed to issue me the Grand Slam, and every year they screwed it up. They should get it right this year. Iím buying a couple chances.

You and me both. And worse yet, they didnít even award me my preference point for desert sheep even though I didnít draw.

Hate to show you this but I grew up in CO and drew both the bighorn tag and the mountain goat tag. Good thing about being a resident is you can keep an eye on the herds while you wait for the tag to pop.



It sure helps!

I'm _SURE_ you hate showing that.
That being said...DANG!!

To the OP, I feel your pain.
I had a broken collar bone and cracked shoulder blade when I got the only one I ever won!

I feel your pain, as I received the exact same email. But I am going sheep hunting, as my nephew drew a tag! I think I'm more excited about it than he is!

S33 should be a great hunt!
Dang kid doesn't have a clue what he has... well maybe a little! Moved down here from CO a couple years ago, his dad has been applying for him since he was 12 or so, and then draws the tag on the first year he puts in as a nonresident! SMH!!! Oh well at least I get to go sheep hunting!

We elk hunt 66 quite a bit. I too have packed a couple of nice bulls out of 76! Some of my favorite country in all of Colorado.
