Here is a Colorado deer hunt Poll. If you hunted Colorado deer in 2018, please share what state you live in, and how many spotters you had during your hunt in Colorado. A spotter is any person that helped you find an animal on your hunt, mom, dad, friend, mistress ECT...
This poll will run for two weeks. At the end of two weeks, one lucky person will win a $100.00 dollar gift certificate to Cabela's or Sportsman's warehouse.

I will start.

Utah- 1 spotter.

If you don't answer honestly, yer going to hell. 🔥

Touch?. I will personally draw the line at a 3 to 1 ratio. Any man that can tolerate three women at one time without any alcohol deserves extra spotters without penalty.

That count if said women your wife and daughters? If so I got 3 on hand.

On different note. CO native just to clarify, all CO tags. 1 for 4 on tags. Should have had 3 of 4.

Having said that, got my son his 1st deer, and with that we are 100% happy.

Saw way too many convoys of spotters to ratio of hunters. Sad really when you've 4 or 5 trucks of guys to 1 or 2 hunters.

Me: 1 tag (10 days on the mountain for a 5 day hunt)
Son: 1 tag (10 days)
Son: spotter, pack mule, general helper (5 days)

We ended up filling both tags on the last day.
360 yard shot (2 mile pack out)
130 yard shot (1/2 mile pack out)

Had a great time with my sons (glad both of them were there to help) and met a few new friends.

My current situation precludes me from caring about your opinion but go ahead and give voice to it anyway...

Who am I to believe, the honest folks on the internet or my own lyin' eyes?? It seems only rugged individuals bring their Conestoga wagon here for picking up the "free meat".

I do have to chuckle now and then when the string of punkins outnumbers the average size of the groups of animals and they all plop down in a ten foot circle and pull out "the glass".

And officially, just to skew the poll further:

CO.
zero.

1
(it was my 15-year old daughter's tag and I helped her)

other details:
200 yard shot with my old .270 Winchester.

Maybe she would've shot a bigger buck with all the "Utard tactics"?

P.S.
Don't know any of the stereotype Utards in my circle of family/friends. But, like Bigfoot sightings, I hear about them all the time...

Do it! You'll have to compete with the California guys, but do it!

If I see you, we'll BS for a while. I'll share a cold coke. I'll introduce you to my three wife(s). You'll complain there are no big bucks. And I'll tell you the Cali guys killed them all.

As a young man, we always made fun of the "California prune pickers" that came to Utah to hunt "our mule deer." Now, we are the brunt of jokes from all of the surrounding states. This entire dsicussion makes me chuckle. In all seriousnness, however, I have met both upstanding, honorable sportsmen and lazy, dishonest scumbags in nearly every state that I visit. Don't get too caught up in your stereotypes, and if you do, take a break from the internet and get out and meet some real people. You may just be surprised by what you learn and experience. And most importantly, try to be the kind of person/sportsmen that you expect others to be.

From California....my Dad and I each had a deer tag. We were the only 2 spotting. We must be blind because neither of us could find a buck over 8 inches wide. Had tag soup on the 11th of November for dinner.

A son and friend came to share the experience 16 years to draw.
We hunted from the same truck.
Would that be 2 spotters?
one 170 class buck shot at 225 yards.

Thought tards didn't drink... but I know it takes a lot of 3.2 beer to get wild on the keyboard so fire water is a fair guess.

I'm one of those non-drinking Utahns (never thought of myself as a tard?) who's had 4 Colorado deer tags in the last 40 years. After four tags I killed one giant CO buck with no spotters. I suspect I won't get to hunt there again, but I have a good deal of respect for the place. On my last hunt (2011) I did get some good feed back on here from Coloradoboy but no worries, because it didn't lead me to my buck.

I'm not sure why there is so much anger and finger pointing going on now days? I don't recall it being like that a decade or two ago. Maybe I'm getting forgetful...or may be a sign of the time. :)

Went out during third season and did a little scouting for next year. I gotta admit, there's some nice deer in Colorado. Kinda hard to believe that on the last weekend of third season there were still people pushing draws and walking past nice bucks.
