Here’s a glimpse into a wall tent for a solo-hunter we set up third rifle season 2019. This is a 10x12 tent, smaller than our 12x14 for 2 or 3 hunters, but has all the amenities of our larger camps.
10 x12 Davis Wall Tent
Indoor/ Outddor green grass floor
Wood stove, firewood, lighter fluid
5 gl propane for cooking
2 1/gl cylinders of propane for lantern
5 gl bucket for Latrine (per Forest Service requirements!)
..... and the best opportunity to experience the wilderness.
Harvesting an elk is an added bonus!
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife application for licensing and tags for 2020 is now OPEN!
It closes April 7, 2020.
I got on their site this morning and went through the process to brush up on the details. I found it pretty straight forward. If you would like help applying, we would be glad to coach you on setting up your account if you don’t have one.
Here’s a thought; we have had hunters hold out for the opportunity of buying land-owner vouchers and not start building preference points. Land-owner vouchers are becoming more difficult to come by. Building up preference points makes sense!
Just read a story from a man whose father-in-law hunted OTC units and, unbeknownst to his family, kept putting in for points for mule deer all the while. He now has enough to draw a limited draw unit for mule deer and is looking forward to an awesome hunt this year!
You do have to buy a “qualifying license” for 2020. A non-resident must purchase a small-game license even if you put in for points and are not planning to hunt this year. A resident has a few other options, I chose the small-game/annual fishing license and then added an extra-rod stamp! Getting it all done at once!
The bull in the pack out is featured in the September 2019 issue of Petersen’s Bowhunting magazine. Really cool story of a solo-hunter on a public land archery hunt with us in 2018. This is his photo.
