I wouldn't be surprised if someone did buy some from a game preserve and then they got out. That one that got hit in 2006 had a orange plastic ear tag so it had to have come from somewhere and then got out. The Game and Wildlife division cant keep tabs on everyone. And good move waiting out the rain in Silverton--the road from there to Ouray is not one you want to hit a slick spot on riding a bike--not a lot of margin for error!
Now you're just making me jealous.
I've been all over Texas on my Beemer. Colorado is dream for the future.
