Co. Trophy unit draw, what should I do ?

I have been saving PP and now have 15 and still cant draw unit 2, I am afraid I will not live long enough to draw a tag ..What other units have trophy animals 320+ that I might look into ?

    15 points and no draw, that sucks.

    Aviator, Your 5 years out on unit 2 with no points creep.
    You could draw unit 40 this year if you'll have 16 pts., or unit 76 second season with 11 pts.

    Muzzle Loader unit 49-6 pts
    unit 62-2 pts
    unit 66-11 pts
    unit 67-10 pts
    unit 76-14 pts

    Archery 40, 49, 61, 66, 67, 76, I'd choose 61 1st & 76 2nd all are 15 pts or less.

    You could wait 2 more years & with no pts creep Draw unit 61 & 76 1st season with 17 pts.

    Best of Luck, Wayne

    Going in blind to any unit after 15+ years isn't a move I would make. Spend a year or two hunting Cows (if available), now that you are that close, and when you draw you'll be up to speed.

    Have not hunted Co. for a few years but last good tag I had was in 62. On opening morning we passed 33 bulls before 9 A.M. Several of those were at least 340 bulls. Lots of bulls but we could not find any monsters. Took nine years for me to get the damn tag and I ended up eating it, but lots of 300-350 bulls.
