Default CO; Moose, Sheep, or Goat?

If you had to apply for just 1 of these 3, which would you pick?

Which do you think has the greatest trophy potential in Colorado?

As a non-res I'm forced to front the $1919 fee just to apply for a pref.point and they don't accept credit cards.


Any insight on odds too would be appreciated, ie...if Moose in CO have the greatest trophy potential but you'll never draw the tag in your lifetime, then it would make more sense to apply for goat or sheep...


feel free to pick 2 if say moose and sheep both have great trophy potential in CO but goats do not.

Without a doubt it's---bighorn sheep. They are all hard to draw. I've drawn 3 sheep tags, I've been applying since 84 or 85. I've drawn 1 goat tag from 85----drew in 2000. I've been applying for moose since they started & have never drawn.

Trophy----Mtn goats----They are hunted pretty hard-----no B/C goats in Colorado.
Moose-----There are some good ones. But really its a shiras------Go to AK for a big bull.

Sheep-----There are B/C rams killed every year in Colorado.


My ram is a 7/8 curl. My billy was busted up from the fall down the avalanche shoot.

For a moose---I applied in WY-----drew a tag in @ 8 years.

Moose. I got to go on a moose hunt as a pack boy, sherpa, BIL, slogger here in CO. It was great and only wish I would get drawn.
