I fell for the old bait and switch last year. It was so cheap I put my wife in. I talked friends into applying. Then we all got hit later for the extra fee.
After that I bought my wife and I the small game license thinking it would save me money this year, I think I got hosed again.
Of course I didn't realize Colorado didn't point average either so my wifes few points can't be added to my 12 to draw a lower point unit. My bad.
Colorado made it legal to crap on the sidewalk, no reason to believe they won't keep crapping on us hunters.
The big surge in applications last year shouldn't be as bad this year. My wife and friends are out. I'll come burn my points one day on a average hunt and be done.
Watch where you step!
