"Final CO. tag #'s approved?"

After the Commission meeting in Grand Junction last week, I haven't seen anything on what the final tag numbers were set at. Does anyone know what Western Colorado's (not just Gunninson Basin) tags were set at? I didn't see it on CDOW website
Thanks
The Christian

Just about all were approved as recommended by the DOW staff other than what Tomichi said (i.e. Gunnison Bason unit doe tags) . The numbers can be seen in the meeting agenda pdf file on the DOW website that had the link posted in other threads about this same topic. Some dramatic reductions in some units. Most far western units were not affected thus the reductions only accured in the intermountain valley units.

Here is the link you are looking for. The deer stats start on page 55. MAJOR reduction in the eagle county units. Looks like they did the right thing. Good luck in the draws.

About time, they have been hammering the dogcrap out of those mature bucks. For the DOW to actually lower tags, means they really mismanaged those units in the past. They are basically admitting fault when they do something drastic at the cost of lost revenue. I suspect the winterkill is a convenient excuse, but had little to do with it.

What doesn't make sense is why they are still offering doe tags in 44, but none in 35-36-45??? They should not be giving out any doe tags, and they should scrap the 4th season. Give those seven 4th season tags from 44, 4th season, and put them into the 2nd season quota. Success rate will be lower, but people would still get to hunt.

They should also manage 35-36-45 as separate units. If it weren't for the safe haven of private land in 35, there wouldn't be a buck left. The tags are good for three units, but everyone makes a beeline for 35 anyway.

It is obvious that most units are not managed for the deer, but rather for the dollar. There seems to be no management plan at all. They pulled those numbers out of their a$$.
