Leftover licenses available
Leftover and over-the-counter big-game hunting licenses go on sale Aug. 5 and with plenty of licenses on the block, now is the time to make a decision.
A list of the approximately 6,000 deer, 30,000 elk, 5,000 pronghorn and 1,800 bear licenses available for the fall hunting seasons can be found on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website, cpw.state.co.us.
Sales begin at 9 a.m. on Aug. 5, and once started, the list will be updated every 15 minutes.
This year is the first time both leftover and OTC licenses are being sold on the same day.
Leftover licenses are surplus licenses that went unsold during the limited drawing.
Plus, hunters who shop online can do so on Aug. 5 without waiting that extra day, as they have in the past.
Licenses are available statewide license agents, Colorado Parks and Wildlife service centers, online or by calling 1-800-244-5613. In addition to a current and valid photo ID, proof of residency and social security number, anyone buying a license must have a Hunter Education card, unless the hunter was born before Jan. 1, 1949. Bring this card with you for in-person sales.
