So much for that hunting boycott Colorado outdoorsmen were trying to threaten outfitters and the state with.
According to the Denver Post, hunting licenses increased by 17,000 this year, a 4 percent jump from 2012. This comes after hunters said they were going to boycott the 2013 season because the threat of harsher gun regulation laws. Instead, 468,816 applications were processed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, according to the Post, and that number will likely increase because of over-the-counter licenses weren’t included. They can be purchased in July.
When it came down to it, hunters weren’t going to miss out on a chance to harvest a trophy Colorado elk or deer.
Randy Hampton, the CPW public information officer, told the Post there’s a “strong demand” to hunt in Colorado and there should be. With untouched landscapes and hundreds of thousands of elk, deer and bear that roam the beautiful Rocky Mountain countryside, hunters in Colorado don’t know how good they actually have it.
If you want to find out how scenic and majestic a real Colorado elk or deer hunt is, give us Samuelsson Outfitters a call. With a horseback hunt throughout the Troublesome Basin, it’s a chance to explore the land and take down an elk or deer as they would before the invention of motor vehicles.
Hunting with Samuelsson Outfitters is as natural as you’re going to get. With a horseback hunt and a real tent camp, you’ll wonder why Colorado hunters even tried to bluff at missing a hunting season.
