Looking for reports from this last years hunt. Have enough points to draw 3rd season in 2020 and looking for pointers.
I was in Gunnison last November for third and fourth season. I wasn’t hunting unit 66 but I did chat with another hunter from Wyoming that was hunting 66/3 season. It was towards the end of the season and he hadn’t seen anything worth shooting yet. He said he has bigger bucks where he lives in Wyoming and didn’t want to shoot a 170 buck in Colorado and that was the best that he had seen on the 66 3rd season. I don’t know how the hunters did on the 66/4 season. I killed my buck on opening day 4th season and left the next morning.
——WOW complaining because he passed a 170 buck on public land?
There’s a dude who killed a super pretty buck in south central Colorado last year. He posted on Instagram to have people guess what it scored. People guess all the way up into the low 200’s......... it scores like 171. Camera angles make Boone and Crockett bucks seem normal ! HahaKill a 170 and do some tasteful photos and you can have at least a 180!
Unit 2 would be a fun hunt if you wanted to look at a bunch of bulls and small number of deer but there’s always a solid buck or two up there.Ill have no problem killing a 180 deer. I'm past the point of big bone only or bust. Just looking for a nice hunt and seeing some deer. Actually still considering a Unit 2 Muzzy so I can be around all those bugling bulls in SEP.
You took a super fine buck in your photo ! A WOW there. I'm going to try for 66 3 rd this year at 11 points Resident & hope. Reason is : I'm 73 & running out of time. I've never hunted 66 but will go up a week before season starts & recon /scout hard. I'm a trophy guy & have had Tag Soup often & this could another one. But Lightning has to strike someone. Sometime. I liked your summary of 66 !Western Colorado was down every where last year. Probably the worst season I’ve witnessed since 08. However cashing the points before things get to out of hand with the new season date structure is a good move. 66 is very cool country and always has the potential of producing something special. It honestly has been the only unit in the Gunnison basin that’s been on the upswing the past decade or so.
hi badger... would love to ask you about unit 2...found you in forum...ive got enough to get in to 2 late for deer..24 pts. what do you think that hunt could look like..thanks JC i can give you my phone if that could workIf you decide to hunt Unit 2 I would be happy to tell you what I learned hunting it last fall deer hunting with a rifle.
