First of all, hunting in a state is a "privilege" not a right. So that person that bought points for a few more years than the new resident or the NR new to the game, has more of a "privilege" to hunt any specific unit more than those with less points. But given that CO has many OTC units, leftover tags, and easy to draw units.........everyone has had the same opportunity to hunt in Colorado. That's not even debatable.I've yet to hear a good reason why someone who has bought points for a few more years somehow has more of a right to hunt than a resident that just moved to a state or a NR that just entered the draw.
But you're probably talking about all those "really high PP units" and the "but I want to hunt over there" crowd. Ya.......not all things in life are attainable to everyone. Just because someone thinks they are entitled to own the one and only original Mona Lisa painting on a $50k/year salary but can't........doesn't make that "unfair".
I've been a resident of CO my entire life and have been hunting since 1980. Yet I've never hunted one of those "top units" in CO even though it would have been very attainable over the years. I just made a different choice and prefer to use my points more quickly on units that take a heck of a lot less points. I know and have accepted that I will never hunt "those specific units" in my lifetime. But that's OK........I don't have a right or a privilege to hunt those without meeting the minimum requirements. Everyone has to make their own decisions in life based on their own circumstances. Don't grow bitter over everyone else's choices and privileges that they've worked for or waited for.
