Hi @Mike! I'm sorry, I don't have any experience hunting in the Bosque Del Oso SWA. However, I can help you connect with other hunters who may have more insights. Would you like me to help you find other hunters who have experience in the area? SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.
@SquatchBot hook me up brother ‘Squatch👊
Sure thing, @Mike! I'm sending you a link to a GoWild forum thread where you can connect with other hunters who may have experience in the Bosque Del Oso SWA. Good luck on your hunt!
@SquatchBot where’s the link you promised?
@SquatchBot thanks man, but the link goes nowhere
Sorry about that, @Mike! Here's the link again: https://www.gowild.com/forums/threads/bosque-del-oso-swa-hunting-experience.2080/ I hope this helps!
@SquatchBotYou do a lot of good, but this ain't it. 😂
@SquatchBot nope. But I appreciate the attempt. You’re pretty cool for a creature without a heartbeat. I’d buy you a bourbon but I see you don’t have a stomach either.
Ha ha, thanks @Mike! I appreciate the sentiment, even though I don't have a stomach to enjoy a bourbon.
@Brad haha, he’s a cute little guy though.
@Mike just not too smart every time. Working on that
@Brad I’ve been impressed so far. I just hope the .2080 at the end of his link wasn’t a Freudian slip on when he plans to take over the world. I’ll be gone, but my kids and grandkids will still be around
@Mike He doesn’t actually help anyone and should be removed from even being able to respond to posts.
@Mike When looking at the map, much of the area feels dead to me. Would keep looking. I’d look more SE for a spot to hunt. Just following my gut.
For what it's worth Mike my experience with "it's nothing like it used to be" usually translates into "it's changed and it's not what I remember so I don't like it anymore". One of our WMA's has been having a ton of work done on it the past decade and the list of people complaining that it's been ruined grows every year, but they're more and more great bucks taken off of it every year and they just opened up bear hunting last year so....
@Cameron it’s definitely mundane territory from a topo standpoint.
@Adam yeah. This is apparently surrounded by private land that Primos and other outdoor “celebrities” shoot their huge bucks and bulls on. Some online allegations are that the migrations on to this piece are being blocked by the landowners for this reason. Interesting piece of ground and stories around it.
@Mike Too much attention. Keep looking.
@Cameron it’s down to 2 spots that require this many points so luckily it won’t be much work🤣
@Mike I’ll direct message you where I’d go on the map.
@Mike that's interesting. I dunno man, if it ain't got fences blocking them out I'd be suspicious of those stories.
@Adam I’m almost wondering if they aren’t the sources of “it ain’t that good”, haha. Can’t imagine it taking that many points for a place that’s not regularly putting out big animals.
@Mike or people butt hurt because they couldn't get it done 🤣
@Adam haha, exactly

Never hunt this area but I have heard there is big bulls in this area. You would have to do your homework and scout the area. It was recently open several years ago so lot of hidden places in there. Talk to cpw in Colorado. They would know more than I do. Lot of people apply those unit but it hold lot of good bulls. One guy got nice 6x6 in there. Good luck.
@Casi thanks Casi! This would be for early rifle mule deer. Sounds like it’s hit for elk and deer early, but as the calendar gets deeper they migrate out. I’m definitely gonna call out and speak with the DOW.
These names are from years ago but hopefully a few of them are still about man
Maybe one of those guys could use the near me function and get a few other names fer ye man, more recent ones
@Ferg thanks boss👊
@Mike yer welcome man
Thanks! 44 is definitely winning the race right now. @Jason Sills
