The colorado hunting page at HuntersDB.com

Several years ago I started researching a hunting trip to Colorado. I had done some over leftover hunts up by Meeker, but I wanted to find a unit closer to my home in Arizona. My hope was that I could find a unit with pretty good odds of drawing that I could scout more often.

So like most hunters I turned to the Internet.

If you have ever done any scouting online you probably have experienced the pain I did. While there is a ton of data and maps online they are either locked up Game and Fish PDFs or hidden in some forum thread. It was not easy to find what I was looking for.

It was then that I conceived the idea of the Hunters Database. I wanted a place where I could find information about the PLACE I wanted to hunt. I wanted to explore Colorado Unit 771 and see if it was worth my time. I wanted to look at the harvest and success data. I wanted to dive into the unit map.

So, I decided to build it.

They say if things were easy, everyone would be doing them.┬áThis isn’t the first build of HuntersDB.com. Collecting and publishing hunting maps and data from every state is difficult and time consuming. I stumbled a bit on the first site. But, I still believe there is an audience for this type of website. I decided not to give up. I hope you agree.

This blog will be a mix of stuff. We will primarily post data updates, new features and website changes. But, we will also throw in some commentary, reviews and other observations.

We hope you enjoy it. If you have any thoughts or comments, please share them with us. You can post comments to the blog or email us: info@huntersdb.com.
