Last I checked (a couple weeks ago). By September 1, you can call bulls in with cow calls. Most years, you get 10ish days to hunt any bull units with OTC tags during the beginning of the rut with your bow. The opportunity is there. But it will never be good enough for most guys. You’ll never make everyone happen. The season that we have now is great. Provides opportunity for the people willing to work for it.
This is the truth. You can hunt rutting bulls on the extended with a bow during the rut every year on an OTC/unlimited tag. I'm gonna be chasing them this weekend.

Wow. You hate muzzleloader hunters, don't you?

I think you'd want to make the MZ hunts longer than the Rifle hunts, IMO.

It could be worse, you could have the muzzle loader right in the middle of the bow hunt like Colorado does.

It is actually going on right now here in Colorado. I'll be back out in the morning.

Isn’t this just a thought exercise anyway? It’s not like anything that’s promoted here is going to come to fruition.

Of course in a thought experiment I’m going to promote things that are selfishly beneficial, that’s the point.

I had a great time chasing elk with my bow this year, got into them everyday, putting in 10+ miles a day and hitting it hard for all 15 hours of the day, I’m in 5am, hiking out at 9pm. So the work I put in is definitely there. I’ve already spent several days on the extended, have gotten into 20+ deer (all does with one 2x3) and have an active wallow I’ve been sitting.

Again, I’ve been having a ton of fun this year, I wasn’t complaining in any way, whatsoever. I was merely engaging in conversation and throwing out ideas that are beneficial to me.

Hell, while we’re at it, put the rifle deer hunt in late Nov.

It's fine the way it is now. I never draw permits anyway.

My only complaint has been backpack hunt related as it's always so warm at nights for my previous hunts. I always worried about meat spoilage with the temps in the Boulders but my skill level never got me into an experience to find out.

And PBH has it backwards....ban all other hunts during the grouse season 😁

It's hard to keep so many different users happy all the time. I think the division has done a pretty good job at this ongoing balancing act!
