ATTENTION WHITETAIL HUNTERS - IN SEVERAL OF THE PLAINS UNITS, COLORADO NOW OFFERS WHITETAIL ONLY PERMITS FOR ARCHERY, MUZZLELOADER AND RIFLE HUNTERS - these permits are extremely easy to draw, most tags can be drawn with NO PREFERENCE points!! Transferable landowner vouchers are also available.
Season date is October 1 - December 31, 2014. Hunts are conducted anytime throughout the season, but mainly in November & December, with the exception of a couple of areas where hunts are good in October! All hunts are 6 days of hunting, some tags are valid for either specie, but only one deer. Hunts are almost exclusively spot & stalk, with a few tree stand exceptions! THESE TAGS ARE GENERALLY DRAWN WITH NO PREFERENCE POINTS, AND LANDOWNERS CAN PROVIDE A LANDOWNER VOUCHER IF NECESSARY!! Whitetail Only permits are now available.
Season date is October 11 - 19, 2014. Hunts are all spot & Stalk, usually 6 days of hunting, and some tags are valid for either specie. Tags are generally drawn with 0-1 points, but in the SPECIALIZED TROPHY UNIT, THEY CAN BE DRAWN WITH NO POINTS! This hunt is a tremendous opportunity for a big buck, in a season that is under-utilized by hunters.
Colorado has two separate rifle seasons on the plains. In 2014 the hunts will be Oct. 25 - 29 or Oct. 31 - Nov. 4. This hunt is usually easier to draw, requiring 1-4 points depending on the unit! December rifle hunts are as follows, Dec 1-6 or 8-13. These hunts will take 1-4 points to draw, depending on the unit. Please note, both seasons offer a whitetail only tag in several units. We offer these hunts on several of the ranches with high whitetail populations, and the tags can usually be drawn with no points!!!
