Colorado big-game drawings have happened, and once again, eleven years into the process, I haven’t drawn a moose tag. I did draw a September bear tag for the area south of Eagle down to Basalt, encompassing several Game Management Units (GMU) and loyal sidekick Rat and I have black-powder season buck deer tags for a GMU down on the New Mexico border. The black-powder season is in early September, so weather down there should be beautiful; a certain change of pace from last year’s rather cold and snowy hunt.
The moose tag thing is a little frustrating, though. It takes ten to twelve years, on average, to draw a bull moose tag in Colorado, and I should be damn close now; but Alaska beckons, where there are more and larger moose, so I think I’ll give this application process one more year before I give it up, along with my Colorado residency.

I don’t have any more deep thoughts at the moment, so here’s something from the archives to further brighten your day:
